My XT8 telescope is by far one of the best investments I've ever made. Looking out into the universe after a stressful day is priceless meditation! I HIGHLY suggest you pick up this tried-and-true 8" Dob.

Date Taken: 01/21/2013
Photographer: Johnny H.
Location: Houston, TX
Telescope: Orion SkyQuest XT8 Classic Dobsonian Telescope
Other Camera: Nikon D3100
Processing: Picasa
Notes: This is a photo of Jupiter and the Moon's conjunction early this year. It was a great, crisp, clear night. I used eyepiece projection from my XT8. I took nearly 200 photos, this was the best. It is my most prized achievement thus far in AP. I cropped and added contrast to the photo using Picasa.
