Well Terry... first off, I will say, "great job" on the work in astro-photography you have presented in the Okanagan website. I'm a 62 year old life long photographer myself but admittedly not (yet) skilled in the art of astro-photography. As a five year old child I can vividly remember running into the library of my elementary school in Scarborough, (Toronto), Ontario and I would grab the lone astronomy book therein and gaze upon the images of the Horse head nebula and the other fantastic celestial images in astronomy in that little library. When I was in my mid twenties in the mid 80's I bought myself a used Celestron 8" S.C.T. with a few crappy eyepieces and I made no effort to ever learn to use properly let alone use it for astro-photography because at that time everything was film based and that was simply far too extreme for my then abilities. I didn't known how to collimate an S.C.T. let alone even know what collimation was so I think you can guess the quality of what I was seeing. Anyway... let's skip forward to now... 2022 (almost), and I can happily report that I have now purchased (almost... pending when it finally arrives) a Celestron 14" Edge S.C.T,... AND... a Stellarvue SVX 130T refractor. Yes... both. To complimen botht those O.T.A.'s I have five Televue Eyepieces and a ZWO ASI 6200MC D.S.O. camera and a ZWO ASI294 planetary camera. I also have a handful of accessories like a ZWO off axis guide scope and an ASI Air plus and a French made atmospheric dispersion corrector for it all. As I've been waiting since April 16th when I purchased (and paid for) the Celestron O.A.T. to arrive (if it ever does) I've been doing a hell of a lot of reading on astro-photography to learn how to accomplish this type of imaging. Seeing as you live in west-bank and I live in upper mission (as of August 11th this year) I hope to meet up with you some time in the coming year and pick your brain on how to achieve some great images. I look forward to that opportunity. Oh... and by the way.... in case you would like to see some of my non astro-photography work I invite you to visit my website of photographic images at: Once again.... great job on your images and I hope to meet up with some time in 2022.
