Well, I've been around the forums a while, so I thought i'd show you all what my humble setup and acquisitions have amounted to in the last 6 months.

I have to put a hold on purchases now (well after i buy the ED100 and sell my dear Scopos :rolleyes:)

It's cost me a small fortune, but i'm happy with my setup. :lol:

Looks a classy outfit Kevin. Seems to me you have enough there to provide you with satisfying imaging results.

You said the Scopos had to go beacause you wanted a 100 for guiding. I think the little fellow is quite capable of doing that.

Unless you envisage guiding with the Celestron, and Imaging with the ED100 Is your main camera the Canon, and DSI the guide cam?

I bought my WOZS66 purely for guiding purposes, although I am well impressed with the quality of the images it delivers to the eye.

Kevin, Nice setup mate. Would be pretty much my ideal...

Don't forget that Roger guides a C11 with an Equinox 80. So the 66 should guide the C9.25 OK.

That's a very 'business like' setup Kevin, and the 9.25 has a very good reputation too.
