Andrew Thomas has been a huge fan of Tele Vue ever since buying his first "real” eyepiece, a 24mm Tele Vue Widefield, back in 1985. He purchased his Tele Vue-76 APO refractor in 2015, at the Table Mountain Star Party from Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory, to use as a high quality, portable visual scope and was immediately impressed by the wide-field and pinpoint sharp views. Now he's posting beautiful, wide-field, sky images on his Flickr feed made with that scope. See these images on our blog!

IC63 and IC59 – Ghost of Cassiopeia – Ha – 2019-10-31 by flickr user Andrew Thomas. All rights reserved. Used by permission.
“IC63 (middle) and IC59 (upper-left) are emission nebulae adjacent to the bright star Gamma Cassiopeiae in the constellation Cassiopeia. IC63 is often called the Ghost of Cassiopeia, since, well, it kind of looks like a ghost. In an appropriate coincidence for the subject, this narrowband image was captured on Halloween night from Seattle, WA.”
Imaged with Tele Vue-76 APO refractor with Tele Vue TRF-2008 0.8x Reducer/Flattener (converts TV-76 to 380mm f/5.0 for flat field, fast photography) into QSI 683wsg (3326×2504 sensor) camera. Mount used was iOptron iEQ45 Pro. Exposure was through Astrodon Hydrogen-alpha, 5nm filter for 2.5 hours (10 x 900 sec).
