TSS Photo of the Day

Fattystar from US


Post by fattystar »

Hello TSS people,
I got a nextstar 8SE last summer and took a few pictures of the Jupiter, Saturn and the moon.

I upgraded my mount to a EQ6r and bought a couple of used DLSRs for DSO.

Welcome to the forum.

DSO- 18 inch F4.5, 10 inch F6
Lunar- SW 180 Mak
Solar- DS LS100
Binoculars- Oberwerk BT100

And as on clear nights they watch the familiar, unhurried, timeless stars go by in their quiet splendour, they may perhaps achieve that sense of calm and rhythm and beauty that is often denied to worried men and women in a bustling world.
