This is my first light with the Orion 10" Newtonian. After having started astrophotography a few years ago on an 8" f/5 Newtonian on an AVX, and having a terrible time before switching to a refractor, I thought I was never going to go back to a Newt. But here we are again and I'm very much enjoying it this time!
