Can we get a run through?
Seems like serious kit.
Astro-Tech AT65EDQ Quadruplet wide field refractor telescope (420mm)
Sky-Watcher EQM-35 mount
ZWO ASI533MC Pro single shot cooled color camera that can be cooled to -35c (mounted to the main scope)
ZWO ASI120mm mini guide camera and 50mm guide scope (small scope)
ZWO ASIAIR Pro computer to power and control everything through WiFi to a small tablet (large red box on top)
ZWO EAF (electronic auto focus) (small red box mounted to the focuser)

With an extension cord to power it and my Lenovo tablet I sit in the house and control everything while this is out in the back yard doing it's thing.

This is my fav. image so far with a lot to still learn.

The Orion Nebula (M42) and The Running Man Nebula (NGC1975)

Thanks for the run through and the picture, amazing!
This gives me GAS!
My big problem isn't getting the gear, that might be possible money-wise, but I need to move to a house out in the countryside with dark skies so I can use it and that is a bit more expensive. :crying:
Ooh, I can always dream.

On the Bortle scale my sky is a 4 which is kind of dark. People image from the city a lot and use filters to block the light pollution and get amazing images...

It blows my mind that this small scope from my yard can image things millions of light years away..

These were taken with this set up, but with a Fuji mirrorless camera.
This is the Whirlpool Galaxy 23 million light years away or in the past as it took the light from it that long to reach us. (not great images)

This photo is absolutely stunning. Are these natural colours? It's really fascinating what's out there.
Thanks for showing us this beauty that we never could see with our eyes.
