    Re: Large format Astrophotography

    James does great work!

    I will have to re-read your blog. I see the piggyback SCT setup which is what I want to do. Had a peak last night through my "new" 1985 C8 at Saturn and Jupiter just to see...

    Re: Large format Astrophotography

    Using a 150mm lens this implies a bellows extension of well over 300mm (1:1) right?

    Seems...improbable. That also needs to be mounted and moving on a equatorial mount.

    A (new) Technika (made for film) is definitely a luxury product. It's no surprise that used Master Technikas sell for $600-$1000 despite selling "new" at B&H for $13,000 now. I don't really care what...
