Astronomy

For visual astronomy I use my 9.25″ SCT and lately I’ve been focused on photography. I’ve just gotten a 50mm finder scope converted
into into a guide scope with my DSI (look for the article under How-To’s), and I started guiding last time out. With my
CG-5 I can regularly get 30-60 sec. and I hope to extend that to 180 sec. with improved polar alignment and guiding with
Stark Labs PHD.

I use these tools regularly, please feel free to ask questions about experiences, technical issues and real world challenges.
Join us on our next astronomy camping trip!
