Image Gallery

As a rule, if an image on this site appears in an informational frame, then it has been 'flipped' to appear as it does in the sky. Otherwise, it appears just as it does through the ETX eyepiece which, because of the diagonal mirror, is reversed with respect to the true "sky" view.

Best Images - These are some of the best that I've taken.

Messier Objects - I seem to have gotten it into my head that I should try to get shots of as many Messier objects as I can.

Images and experiments day-by-day:
