Orion SkyQuest XT8i IntelliScope Dobsonian Telescope
Iphone 4 Processing: Registax 6 Exposure: 150 frames at 30 fps Other Equipment Used: Moon filter, 25 mm plossl. Notes: I used virtualdub to convert the video from .mov to .avi which required a codec download, then I was able to stack the video with registax and apply wavelets ect. It's my first attempt at it and the seeing wasn't great but it's still not bad.
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.
Do you want to be able to view more than 14,000 celestial objects at the push of a button, without the difficulty of reading a starchart? The XT8i telescope pulls in 77% more light than the 6" model, and helps you find objects in just a few seconds!
