My New Baby

Orion 80mm ED with SkyView Pro mount

Comupterized Hand Controller (13,564 object database)

Orion 80mm ED Optical Tube Assembly (OTA)

Well gang, here is the new telescope. I sold both my ETX-125 and my 8" StarHopper Dobsonian to buy this one. Both other scopes were stellar viewing scopes, but I wanted something that I could use for long-exposure astrophotography.

Enter the Orion 80mm ED telescope sitting atop an Orion SkyView Pro Equatorial mount. The scope is just over 3 inches in diameter, but it works better with my camera for photographing Deep Space Objects such as: galaxies, nebula and star clusters.

When the weather clears this weekend, I will attempt to snap some celestial pictures.

Until the next time!
