The main scopes I used for imaging were an Orion 190 mm f/5.3 Mak-Newt and a Stellarvue 102mm f/7.9 apochromatic refractor.

The mount was a Parallax HD 150 German equatorial. I controlled it using an old Macintosh G3 desktop running Voyager III software. Images were taken with an SBIG ST-2000XCM CCD camera (below left) or a Canon 30D DSLR camera (below right), controlled with a HP Compac laptop. Everything was controlled from my house via a wireless network.
