First Light Astro-Tech AT106 EDT TMB Refractor - Rosette Nebula

Recommended Posts

Not mine unfortunately, I have been presented with this brand new addition to the Astro-Tech range to review from an 'imager's perspective' and a full review will be posted in the future. Conditions last night were not the best but at least I could see the stars and I have had this telescope in my possession for over three weeks without an imaging opportunity so I had to give it a try! In particular, I was pleased with the star shapes at the edge of the FOV.

What were the exposure details ?

44 subs. at 300 seconds each captured with my SXVF-M25C with no flattener.

Ohh, do you think they will want it back then? :( :crybaby:

The star shapes are indeed impressive Steve.

My only negative comment, is that the image seems to lack contrast in nebula. Of course given the discussion in my IC434 thread, it could be the way Adobe Gamma has setup my monitor.

I feel perhaps another spend coming on, for a hardware calibration device :(

Very nice smooth image Steve. Looks like its a fine scope. The amount of subs has really helped the natural look.

Cheers

Cracker Steve... I think to give the scope a decent review you'll need to try it on a range of targets... about 18 months should be enough time to complete the exercise :(

I like your treatment of that Steve, soft and wispy. Fine Rosette

Excellent image. I must start having the patience to take more subs. It certainly pays off. Well done. Scope looks a cracker too. Trevor
