After a long break of about 5 years, I have decided to get back into astrophotography. I recently made some upgrades to the obs to make it more comfortable and purchased some new equipment. The replacement of the meade fork mount with a Celestron CGX mount has been well worth it. On the few cold clear nights that have been available after installing it, I was able to get the polar alignment spot on and this thing locates objects and tracks beautifully. 

    • Changes:
  • Lined the walls and gave it a coat of paint,
  • Replaced some monitors with bigger screens,
  • Added a new laptop (not shown here)
  • Replaced the Meade Fork mount with a CGX EQ mount
  • Replace single OTA with 3 scopes:  
  • -Skywatcher Esprit 120 for imaging (with QHY268c cooled colour imaging camera  and filter wheel)
  • -ED80 with Gstar Colour Video Camera for Live Video feed of target 
  • -ZWO Guide Scope with Starlight Express Loadstar V2 camera.
