The Shorttube 80 is one of my favorite scopes. I purchased this telescope to be used as a guide scope but discovered that its optics work very well for deep sky astrophotography. Here is a recent image taken of the Great Spiral Nebula in Andromeda.

Notes: I have had a passion for astronomy since my early years in elementary school during the 70's. The North Museum planetarium in Lancaster, PA near my home and Star Trek fueled this interest. I am now working part time in this same planetarium 35 years later sharing many of the photographs with the public.
