Equipment

Premier telescope SW 130/900 EQ3-2
  • My first telescope (2010)

Sold to a friend.






  • My Orion 200/1000 (2011-2013)

Newton Orion 200/1000 on Sirius EQ/G mount

For imaging, I used my Canon EOS 1000d.

Then, I sold my Sirius EQ/G mount and bought the Atlas EQ/G of a friend.
I also replaced my old webcam by a iNova PLB-C2 camera. This camera is good for autoguiding and planetary pictures.

Then, I bought a SkyWatcher Mak90 for my autoguiding setup (with my PLB-C2) and for travel observations.

  • My TS UNC 8" f/4 on Atlas EQ/G mount (since 2014)


The UNC is a Newton astrograph made by TeleskopService. It has a solid Carbon tube with a stable secondary holder and an ACU low profile focuser (similar to Baader Steeltrack).
I also bought a Baader MPCC MarkIII coma corrector, a must have for a f/4 apperture Newton.
Still using my Canon EOS 1000d for imaging and my MAK90+iNovaPLB-C2 for autoguiding.
It is fixed with a Losmandy dove tail, for more stability (not seen on this pictures), and for later fixing the autoguider side by side (instead of top).
