Behind The Scenes

Behind the scenes of my last astrophoto "Diving Into The Lagoon Again"

This was taken after I had been imaging this nebula for about an hour and a half. I lit the telescope with my mobile phone screen. Pictured here is a NEQ6 Pro Goto mount. On top of that is a 10 inch F/4 Newtonian Reflector Telescope. On top of that is an Orion 80mm ShortTube Guidescope and Synguider Autoguider (Bright glow top right). You can also see the Canon 1000D direct coupled into the telescope and a programmable remote shutter release hanging from the camera. There are actually three counter-weights on the mount but two are black and don't show up in the image.

Let me know if you want to see more of these 'behind the scenes' sort of shots or if you want to know more about a bit of equipment imaged here.
