Re: New Telescope
- Hi Paulo,
This may be a bit off topic for a CCD imaging group, but you
mentioned Obsession in your post. I picked up a used 15" Obsession
about two years ago and it's got to be one of the best visual
observing instruments out there. It's not too heavy, fits easily in
the back of my Outback wagon, quick to set up, excellent optics, and
short enough to observe anything without a ladder. With a decent DSC
setup it's a blast to use.
People do use scopes like this for imaging by using an equatorial
platform, but I think that would take away some of the appeal -
additional setup time, more "stuff" to bring along, etc.
Hope this helps.
