Celestron C8 SGT XLT
A fantastically good telescope, able to hook up to a camera, and also able to hookup to a computer and be controlled by the computer ...."go to Orion Nebula" and it takes you right there. It has its own GPS so it has a pretty good idea where it is in the world, then you just point it at any three bright sky objects, and it then knows automatically where everything is Exactly. Pick any 3 bright objects and you don't even have to tell it what those objects are.
Now that is cool!
The Scope is only about 60 lbs wet (lets hope it doesn't get wet), but is a beast at gathering light. These are actual pictures.
C'mon how about a little Christmas present for steveo? Thanks and have a Happy Holiday season. I will probably be pretty scarce between Christmas and New Years as far as blogging goes.
