It is a Takahashi CN-212 telescope in newtonian mode ( for now), a QSI 583 camera with integrated OAG and a Meade DSI Pro camera as guider. Focus is done using a Robofocus system. I use a Televue Paracorr corrector ( 932 mm ) and an ASA 2” corrector/reducer ( 620 mm) . Mount is a Losmandy G11 Gemini L4 equipped with an Ovision worm gear.

Software used is : Photoshop CS, MaximDL 4.10, Pinpoint, Registar, THeSky6 Pro, ImagesPlus, GradientXterminator plugin, CCD Commander , Registax ,Focusmax, ACP 5.0, Pempro
