My Gear

Hey All

So I've recently gotten back into astronomy and astrophotography ('back into' is generous since last time I only had a scope for about 6 months).

I got my hands on a C8 (circa 1980 I believe) OTA, then added the tripod and wedge (thanks to a member here) and got the original matching finder from the US.

For the photo part I'm running a D5300, manfrotto pod and a couple of lenses (24-80 and 70-300). I also have a starwatcher star adventurer (not pictured) for tracking.

Been having collimation issues with the C8, I think, it throws a good image of the moon but jupiter is a splodge, anyways that's the learning journey I guess I have to go on.
