Steve Tuttle's Astrophotography

I started Astrophotography in college with a home made 8" f/7 Newtonian on a Cave Astrola Mount (modified). As I was in the Physics Department and was teaching Astronomy Labs, I had access to the school's Celestron 5" Schmidt Camera. About 15 years ago, I had saved up for a more portable Meade 8" LX200. I am now semi retired and decided to try my hand at digital astrophotography, starting with a non-modified WebCam for planets. It was so much fun, I have moved up over the years and now have an SV102ED mounted on an Orioan Atlas (w/EQMOD)as my primary scope and an SBIG 8300M camera (9/2010). I get a lot of help from the Yahoo eGroups dedicated to each of the cameras, software and telescopes I own or from the Fort Worth Astronomical Society.
