Orion EON 80
Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Monochrome Imaging Camera Processing: Photoshop CS6 Exposure: 5x180 Sec Other Equipment Used: Orion Magnificent Mini Autoguider Package Notes: I've been interested in Astronomy since around 10. The last few years I've become more serious about astronomy and astrophotography and have slowly built up the setup I have now. After experimenting with more than a few telescopes, I fell in love with the Orion EON 80 ED as a visual scope, which happens to be a great wide field scope when using a DSLR and field flattener. The 50mm Magnificent Mini Autoguider package works great in the finder scope mount for a lightweight, easy to manage setup. The G3 cameras are great for a smaller FOV and are very sensitive.
