Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount
Canon 7D Processing: Pixinsight Exposure: 6x120 sec Other Equipment Used: BackyardEOS, Stellarium, EQMOD Notes: First image in a while without my Astronomik clip-in filter. Wanted to see how I could do without it. Needed a target near zenith considering I live in orange/red, and the Double Cluster fit the bill nicely. Didn't expect to have an image worth producing, but my tracking was good and everything from a mount control perspective was behaving.
The Orion Sirius EQ-G GoTo Telescope Mount is less hefty than the Orion Atlas but with the same drive motors, electronic features, and functionality. This mount can hold up to a 30lb load and allows you to select from 42,900 objects in the database.
