  • NexDome Setup by Frank Parks in San Diego

    Here is my NexDome in San Diego being prepared for the FSQ-106 imaging system.  The 8-foot NexDome was quite easy to assemble and is well made for a very affordable dome.  My next project is to cut down some more trees and start narrowband imaging.  Thanks for the great service.

  • 2017 Totality of Eclipse by Bryan Cogdell

    Here is one of the images I captured during totality on Monday. As the Moon moved eastward it revealed more prominences with amazing detail - I could actually see this through binoculars! And the magnetic interaction on the corona was astounding. This particular shot was taken with an older (Japanese made) Vixen 114ED f/5.3 refractor and Canon 70D.

  • Eclipse Images by Dennis Beatty

    "I shot about 400 images that morning and I am so pleased with
    them. This was my first attempt doing anything like this. I used a Canon
    5D camera with a 10 inch Meade LX-200. I live in southern Oregon and we had
    about 94% totality. I love the sunspots in the third image."

  • Calcium K Image of Sun by Mike Taormina

    HI Farah,

    I just submitted a positive review to your website for the Lunt Calcium-K B1800 blocker diagonal I purchased from you last week. I had a chance to image with yesterday and was able to capture a very nice Calcium-K image.
