Is anyone using an Astro-Tech AT72 Ed in conjunction with a SBIG STi autoguider. If so...are they a good combination and work well together and did you need an eyepiece extension to reach focus?

Thanks....George

What a difference a year makes. Here is the same M42 picture I shot from 1 year ago except now I used a Panasonic GH3 and the AT8IN.

This is 8 1 minute and 9 second jpg images stacked.

We would like to get the images as soon as possible so we can start getting the project together.




Hmm.... 2013 might be a bit late for your soon-as-possible request made in 2009, but here goes anyway!

IC5146 - the Cocoon Nebula shot thought an AT6RC scope and AT2FF flattener.

Rest of the equipment info, exposure details, and higher resolution version can be found here or in this thread

Here's a ten x 10 minute exposures of NGC7000 in Hydrogen Alpha. It was taken with a SBIG STT-8300m with a AT65EDQ refractor mounted on a AP900GTO mount.

Finally my first picture with a DSLR (Nikon D5100)! Heads up, I'm a beginning amateur and would appreciate any guidance on how and what I should be doing, but I was quite surprised with the Costco Celestron 102GT after I weighted the tube down. The attached photo is a result of 2 stacked images, 30 sec, at ISO 1600, in a very urban setting with no filters. Just straight prime focus. I did use auto contrast and auto brightness using HP MediaSmart to get the faint areas exposed.
