Equipment & Star Parties

My equipment is considered very basic as compared to many astrophotography outfits. I find much more fun in filling in one equipment set's performence envelope before turning to the next :-)

One setup comprises:

Officina Stellare Riccardi-Honders Veloce RH 200 Astrograph OTA
ASA DDM60 Pro Mount
Losmandy Folding HD Tripod WITH MA Top
Lumicon 50mm Super Finder with diagonal, as a finder scope
Astrodon filters: HaLRGB E-Series GenII
SBIG ST8300M CCD camera with 5 filters wheel for imaging

An alternative setup comprises:

Boren-Simon 2.8-8 ED POWERNEWT Astrograph OTA
Synta EQ6 Pro Mount
Lumicon 50mm Super Finder, as a finder scope, and used for guiding or
TS 60mm straight viewfinder with 2" helical focuser used for guiding.
Starshoot autoguider for guiding.
