Some ETX users have sent me examples of their astrophotography. If you have some examples you would like included here please send me a description of how you made the astrophotos and a copy of the images as GIF or JPEG files (due to internet email gateway issues, please send only one image file per message). Send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, if you have created your own web page with your examples please let me know and I'll include a link to your site. You will also find astrophotography examples on the Helpful Information - Astrophotography page.

|Finally a new deep sky object from me. The weather is bad here for weeks. Yesterday it was ok, but I only have 2 hours to get the Orion pictures (rooftops etc). I tried the horsehead nebula. Difficult one for the ETX (can't use Ha filter) but...there's an image. Wanted to take this one for 3 years.|

Here is a better image of Orion I took this evening in Polar Mode with the Motor Controller
not the Autostar. I'm assuming that when I'm in this mode only the RA motor is running.
Wow I was pleased. I used a Parafocal ring to get the focus this time. The Moon Is Almost full
Scope Meade ETX-105
Camera Nikon Coolpix 4500 with Scoptronix T Adapter
16 Sec Exsposure
Noise Reduction On
Gilbert Az Approx 8:30PM Az time
