Telescope

With a short focal length of mm combined with a super fast speed of F/3.3 the Epsilon 130 is the perfect telescope big nebular and larger galaxies. With a nice flat field and awesome stars.

Please note: Pier-6 is a fast Unguided system so 300s is our longest exposure, although at F/3.3 180s exposures is the longest you will ever need

CMOS Camera

The ZWO ASI-2600MM Pro Mono APS/c CMOS is one of Sony's new generation zero ampglow sensors. They are super sensitive with very low noise. Making them a paradym shift from the CCD cameras we are all used to using and require much shorter exposures.
