This section is devoted to all of the gear that I use (past and present) to gaze upon and photograph the glorious wonders of the universe.

Some equipment was bought while other equipment was traded, begged, transformed, "MacGivered". Much of my gear was made with assistance from my friend, and Obewan of all things mechanical and machined, Dave Yates.

New this fall was the addition of an entirely different type of mount : Celestron CGE.

This mount is classed as a "German Eqitorial Mount" (GEM) which is much better suited for astrophotography.

This mount has the highest load capacity that I can afford without winning the lottery.
