Orion is having a crazy sale and competition

Hi All,

Let me begin by saying I HATE Orion Telescopes. However....they are having a pretty cool astroimaging sale and having an astroimaging contest. Check it out! Deadline for the contest is 9/15 and you need to have shot the image with either an Orion scope or ccd. Sorry guys, mounts don't count or I would enter. I am letting you all know because I would think it would be great if one of us win the competition!

Just a heads up, Good luck!

F4 is very forgiving to a new imager.



As I progressed, the SVD did not. As I learned what coma was, and as my imagers started coming with larger sensors. I became more and more… Continue

Growing Pains -- Help!

Hi all!



Growing pains is not really an appropriate title, but probably got your attention. We are going on the two week...um...week-a-versery of this website. We've gone from 2 to 23 members just from word of mouth. We are not advertised anywhere and not on any search engines. So not bad. Actually, better than not bad, this site kicks ass. Unlimited image size, forums, blogs and of course my favorite, the chat. All of this without some big corporation telling us what we can or cannot… Continue
