ATIK 383L+ Processing: Maxim DL 5 Exposure: 6X600sec Other Equipment Used: Starshoot Auto guider, Baader UHC-S filter Notes: My name is Edward I started out back in 2008-2009 when I purchased my first Sirius EQ-G Mount with the ED100 for viewing and later on Astrophotography. I really like deep sky imaging its alot of fun and can be tough at times but I always have fun with it and keep pushing myself to get the next picture that much better, the end product is always something Awesome to share with my friends an family. My favorite Orion equipment would have to be the EON80 for a little scope it packs a huge punch I love it and wouldn't trade it for anything. The Starshoot Autoguider is a must have and works like a champ all the time, never had any problems whatsoever with it. My Sirius EQ-G mount is awesome with rock solid tracking. My viewing location is right infront of my house in the driveway. I have a street light right to the east which sucks but I'm still always amazed at how I can still get good images even with that thing on all the time, wish I could just shoot it out lol. I love this hobby and always will.
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.
