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.
