In May 2000, I purchased a Santa Barbara Instrument Group ST8E CCD camera. This monochromatic CCD camera has a 1530 x 1020 array of 9x9 micron pixels. Click here for the full specifications of the camera. My observing and imaging equipment includes Takahashi 4.2" and 6" fluorite refractors, a Celestron C11, a Zeiss II mount and an Astro-Physics 900GTO mount.

 Thumbnails of my imaging efforts are shown below, with the recent images at the top. Click on the thumbnails or text to see the full size image.
