Orion Optics UK AG12" + TeleVue NP127is,

Orion Optics UK AG12" + TeleVue NP127is


Finally I have finished installing my new Orion Optics UK AG12" using a ZWO ASI1600MM as the main scope/camera, with piggybacked TeleVue NP127is using a ZWO ASI128MC Pro. My imaging as been mostly on hold for 3 months waiting first for the AG12 to arrive from the UK, then awaiting my return from a 3 week trip to Croatia.
These are mounted on a Paramount MEII with absolute encoders. A Lodestar X2 attached to a Celestron OAG body does my guiding. I can also run unguided for up to 5 minutes with the current polar alignment.
A set of Astrodon filters rounds out the hardware.
When imaging I have homemade dew shields attached to both scopes, not shown here.
Next I will post the first target I have imaged with this setup.
