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 email@example.com. 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.

if you're not fed up with me sending you picture after picture, I have again three shots from last weekend. I still keep experimenting with the ETX-90 and its abilities. That night I tried with longer exposure times in polar-alignment-mode.
The first shot is M45 the Plejades (which is my favourite object since childhood), taken with my Canon EOS 450D piggybacked upon the ETX90-PE, 250mm, f/5.7, 2x5min, ISO 800.
The second shot is the belt of Orion with M42, taken with my Canon EOS 450D piggybacked upon the ETX90-PE, 55mm, f/5.0, 2x5 min, ISO 800 + 2x2,5 min, ISO 400
The third shot is my ETX herself during that night. With the help from your site and you book she really turned out a beauty. She is a hack of a small-budget-telescope.
I feel a little bit sad that I probably wont be able to take as many pictures with her in the near future, as I am going to get a Celestron 9.25 SC in January. I am not sure if I am allowed to send you pictures taken with the Celestron SC as long as you wont have a Mighty Celestron Site. Just kidding. Maybe I send you some shots so you can compare them to your LX200.

|It has been a while since I have posted anything-we moved back to the US (San Antonio, TX) from England recently and just got the ETX 80 back from Meade for a flip mirror that came loose. they sent me brand new one and I am very pleased, no jitters or backlash at all this time! I did a quick session last night, here is the image I did- the light pollution here is worse than I remember. One is just stacked and the other is editied in Photoshop, about 10 -10 second stracks with the DSI. My father is law is giving me his 14" LX200 next month when we go to Arizona for Thanksgiving- how is that for something to be thankful for! What a generous gentleman he is-he just isn't able to keep up the observing these days. We have to rent a truck or van to go get it! :-) Might have to invest in a light pollution filter....|

|Here's a photo of the Wild Duck Cluster M11 I took last night. You can see that old duck can't you?|

|Here are three photos from last night. The seeing was pretty good in spite of our increasing light pollution. Very frustrating at first. I just could not achieve a polar alignment, so, went back to alt/az. Not bad when limited to fifteen seconds or less.|
