Telescope

Orion Optics AG14 F3.8 Imaging Newtonian with Wynne corrector, together they combine speed with good correction over large imaging sensors so what’s not to like.

The great thing about these large aperture fast scopes when combined with big sensors is you get a similar field of view to small 70-100mm APO's but with a massive jump in resolution and detail. You could never hope to achieve this with small aperture telescopes

Once you've tried a big fast newt you can never go back!

CMOS Camera

Finger Lakes Instruments Kepler 4040 Cmos camera with a similar size sensor to the venerable 16803 Sensor but much lower read noise, plus far higher sensitivety

7 position filter wheel and OAG, combined with Astronomik 50mm Square unmounted Deep Sky LRGB & HA OII SII 6nm narrowband filters

 GSense are professional level CMOS sensors and require careful/thorough user calibration techniques, so are not really designed for use by novice/casual imagers. Over the coming weeks we will add a page to our forum outlining the best way to get the most out of this amazing sensor as once you do the rewards are worth it!

The maximum sub length we will undertake with this pier is 180 seconds

  • Imaging subjects with brighter cores will of course require shorter sub lengths for HDR, your personal experience will be needed to gauge this yourself.

  • Please remember this is only a guide above, we are just trying to help you have the best experience possible remote imaging with Roboscopes.

  • Roboscopes supply the site and control the equipment but you choose everything else from filters, object/co-ordinates to sub lengths. So you need to exercise due diligence and experience when booking because if you fill the booking form out with incorrect details then you will get precisely that.

  • It is not Roboscopes responsibility to check your detailed requirements after you have booked.
