Saturn
Details
Date Taken: 06/15/2015
Photographer: Michael Skokauckas
Location: Buckeye, AZ.
Other Telescope: Celestron Nexstar 102GT
Other Mount: Meade LXD75
Other Camera: Meade LPI
Processing: Registax 5.1
Exposure: 600 snapshots, 8minutes total.
Other Equipment Used: Orion 1.25 Dialectric Diagonal.
Notes: Decided to take out the Celestron Nexstar 102GT OTA for a spin and see how this beginner to moderate level telescope would do with some planetary imaging. The 4" aperture, and f/9.8 setup did very well and surprised me! There is some CA but the detail that the 102GT can provide makes this OTA a Wolf in Sheep's Clothing! Using an older than dirt LPI imager and getting this level of detail is even more impressive. Would love to see what the Orion 5MP Solar System Imager could do with this OTA.
