My telescope is presently a 130mm (5") f/6 Astro-Physics APO refractor. These instruments produce pinpoint sharp images with very high contrast.
APO refractor is the most beloved by both astrophotographers and visual observers.

My mount is an AP 900GTO from Astro-Physics.

My CCD camera is a QSI 690 WSG8 from QSI Imaging equipped with a WSG8 filterwheel with internal guider outfitted with Baader-Planetarium L,C,R,G,B,Ha,S2,O3 filters

Focusing is not a simple task to do, I'm very satisfied with the LakeSideFocuser focuser and the wonderful Focusmax V4 software.

I'm now taking my evenings imaging session fully automated tanks to CCD AutoPilot5
