Equipment


Telescopes:  TEC 140 APO refractor, Celestron 11 SCT (Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope), Takahashi FS-60C.  Each are optical tube assemblies only.

Previously owned telescopes used for this website's images: Meade 12" SCT  and TeleVue 85 Refractor.

Mount:  Losmandy G11 equatorial mount, which can be used for either of my telescopes individually via a dovetail adapter system.

Cameras:  For CCD: SBIG ST-10XE.  For film: Olympus OM-1n, a few film photos were taken with a Nikon F100.  Most planet imaging is done with a Philips ToUcam Pro webcam.

Autoguider:  For CCD images, most of the guiding is done with the ST-10XE's self-guide CCD. For some of the CCD images and all of those shot on film I use an SBIG ST-4. I usually use the ST-4 with an off-axis guider.
