- My Accessories & Equipments -
MEADE 12" LX-200 D=304.8mm F=3048mm f/10 - the workhorse.
ORION Spotting Scope - Telephoto Lens. Maksutov-Cassegrain System D=90mm F=500mm f/5.6 - some moon and low-mag sunspot pictures
CANON EOS Kiss/Rebel 35mm camera - for all paper pictures

ORION Full-Aperture Glass Solar Filter for MAK500 (sunspots on LX-200 too)
MEADE Off-Axis Guider (for some of the long-exposure ones...)

PARKS Eyepiece-Photography Adapter (for all eyepiece-photography)
PARKS T-CA-AF Canon-Eos Ring (for the eyepiece-photography adapter)

PARKS Filters : ALP SC, No47-violet, No23A-red, No12-Yellow, ND13

Solar Filter mask 3.5" to 12" adaptor for my little ORION Glass Solar Filter (made from trashcan lid)

The digital pictures are made using my SONY DSC-F55 digital 2.1 Megapixel camera by holding the lens to the eyepiece.
I use Kodak 100 Color Gold and the Kodak MAX
films for paper photography.
