Skywatcher 150P Monochrome Galaxy Rig (for now)

Skywatcher 150P Monochrome Galaxy Rig (for now)

Setup of a Skywatcher 150P and coma corrector running at F/3.45. Setup on my SW AzEq-5 mount that can easily handle this OTA (size and weight)

Initial camera will be an ASI178mm planetary camera. This combination has a 0.9" pixel scale and should be my fastest EAA rig yet (80% faster than my AT72EDii and monochrome camera. This should work until I get a 533mm camera for the SCT with the same pixel scale.

AND -- yes I intend to mount the camera on the other side of the scope ... this is a light camera and just playing around for now. I also want to make sure the camera train is solid before I invert things!
