Telescope

A very special one off 14" F3.3 Imaging Newtonian with Zerodur mirror figured by Danny Cardoen, it has a fabulous figure and will produce stunning detail & FOV with the big FLI 52mm diagonal chip!

Peter from 656 Imaging has given it the full treatment including a strip-down, clean and full collimation service. So it really is just ready to rock n Roll!

 

CCD Camera

A FLI ML-16803 CCD camera which in all honesty is still the daddy when it comes to imaging. Superb cooling, fast downloads and very clean images combined with 9um pixels and 52mm diagonal sensor it really is hard to beat.

For your convenience and ease of use we have taken the time to calculate this setup for filter weightings which if followed will help you to maximise your imaging time.

  • Imaging subjects with brighter cores will of course require shorter sub lengths for HDR, your personal experience will be needed to gauge this yourself.

  • Please remember this is only a guide above, we are just trying to help you have the best experience possible remote imaging with Roboscopes.

  • Roboscopes supply the site and control the equipment but you choose everything else from filters, object/co-ordinates to sub lengths. So you need to exercise due diligence and experience when booking because if you fill the booking form out with incorrect details then you will get precisely that.

  • It is not Roboscopes responsibility to check your detailed requirements after you have booked.
