Orion Awesome AutoGuider Refractor Telescope Package
Celestron 9.25 Sct
Orion StarShoot AutoGuider
Sbig STF 8300c Processing: ccdops and photoshop. Exposure: 23 x 120 sec. darks taken. Other Equipment Used: Ccdops software Notes: I have been in Astronomy for 40+ years. Had to give it away for sometime (marriage and children) but never lost an interest. Now that I am retired I have got back into it with astrophotography. I am still learning about this camera and this is only my 3rd try through it. I have set up a small observatory in my backyard with a Celestron 9.25 sct on a wedge and permanent pier. I use Orion awesome autoguider package as my guiding equipment and I find it "awesome" easy guiding through this setup.
Astro-images taken through a telescope on a tracking mount provide breathtaking color and detail that you just can't see with your eyes alone. The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope.
The Orion StarShoot is an easy-to-use, affordable autoguider for long-exposure astrophotography. Plug it into an autoguider port on your mount and let it do the work for you. It comes with the software and cables needed to work right out of the box!
