Description

Over the last several nights, I’ve been using the Mach2GTO and Stowaway to image several familiar nebulas in H-Alpha with the EOS-Ra in the eastern skies. Even under a full moon, the images are impressive. The entire Mach2GTO System (Mount, KeyPad, Computer, Software, and Pier) all performed performed flawlessly.
