Imaging techniques

lucky imaging and conventional CCD imaging ... under construction

My vision
Use a cheap and simple equipment ... no stress, no guiding, no bias, no cooling... and have fun with lucky imaging and fast CMOS Cams :)

Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain C11 SC XLT with HEQ5 SkyScan Pro GoTo mount.

The clear aperture of this Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope (SCT) is 279 mm (11”) with a 35% Central Obstruction (by diameter.) With an OTA length of 60 cm and a weight of ca. 12 kgs, this telescope is good transportable and can be carried by small-class mounts.

 

I use this setup in combination with a ZWO ASI224MC.
