Our Telescopes

This web site is just starting. For now with four telescopes. Later we will add more telescopes (coming online soon will be a 200mm Epsilon Takahashi telescope, and a 30cm RC telescope with a LISA spectrograph).

Model Canon 135mm F/2
Diameter 67mm
Focal Ratio F/2
Camera SBIG STL11000 plus LRGB Ha filters
Field of view 15°x10° (one pixel = 13.75")
The ideal instrument to make wide field views of the Milky Way, search for novae, etc. Limited toward the northern sky. Typical exposure, one minute, maximum 5 minutes. Very luminous instrument, do not use during full moon, would saturate on the sky easily (except with Halpha filter). Autoguiding possible (with QHY miniguidescope).
