Galaxies for Fun Astronomical CCD photos on peculiar galaxies and other astronomical stuff.
The H-alpha scope is here piggyback on the 12" Meade scope.
It is a plain simple 60mm Coronado Solar Max II double stacked solar telescope. I used a Skyris 174M camera to start with, but changed later to an ZWO ASI 183MM camera.
My Dobson Telescope:
This Dobson telescope was constructed back in 1981. I wrote an article about it in Telscope Making #17, edited by Richard Berry. This image is an old image from back then.
Since then I have made some modifications. I use it now and then, and it is a pleasure to use.
