This image was taken with my Orion ST80 mounted on my StarBlast 4.5 imaging OTA. The ST80 serves double duty as a dedicated aux. scope and finder scope which comes in handy when I engage in manual guiding. I wanted to see if the little 80 could even resolve the Viel...being a low cost f5 refractor. You can imagine my joy and delight when I saw the image forming on my laptop! I could not belive it! The ST80 can and will produce some good images. It's not an APO...but it will serve up some nice images if given the chance. Great job Orion on another fine ota!
