SKY-WATCHER Black Diamond 305mm Newtonian Images - AstroShop

 
These images were taken by Astro Shop using a 305mm (12-inch) Sky-Watcher Newtonian telescope. All pictures are copyright and must not be used without express permission of the author. They are provided as an example only of what the optics in this product are capable of and to show our commitment to using and testing products we sell. Sky-Watcher optics are simply excellent and especially for the price. If you have a great image taken with any of the Sky-Watcher range then do please send it to us!

 

The image at right is Saturn taken in March 2012 using the Sky-Watcher solid tube 12-inch Newtonian reflector mount on a NEQ6 equatorial mount. The camera used was a Imaging Source colour DBK618 . The video file captured was stacked with Registax 5.1 and later processed in Adobe PhotoShop.

For simplicity and time saving images, the Imaging Source single shot colour cameras are excellent with fast image rate capture. If you want to go even cleaner, the monochrome (B&W) version used with ProStar LRGB filter set and BrightStar 5 position filter wheel is definitely the go!
