Hello {!firstname},

Yesterday I shared with you some of the stunning images taken by astroimager Michael Watson of Toronto.

In his spare time, when he's not doing astronomy he practises law.

Or maybe it's the other way around.

If you want to take stunning images like Michael, then rest assured you can.

All it takes is time, some effort and practice, and the right equipment.

Choosing the right equipment to begin
with can save you from so many headaches, it's not even funny.

Hard to believe, but some folks just don't listen when we give them the right advice.

You need:  The right mount, the right telescope, and if you are using a digital camera,
the right camera body. 

Michael uses the Nikon D800 body, and the evidence speaks clearly for itself.

And recently, Celestron announced a stunning comeback of a very unique instrument
from way back in the day, The Rowe-Ackermann 11" Schmidt  Astrograph.

Celestron did their homework on this one, and in fact even built in a quality feathertouch brand
focuser as a finishing touch.

The early adopters on this puppy are going to be posting stunning results in the near future as well.

In fact, I was speaking to none other than John Davis, a renowned astro-imager among
other things recently, and he was beta testing the Rowe-Ackermann right through production.

{!firstname}, The images he produced were breathtaking. 

As for telescope mounts, that depends on the size of the optical tube you are going to put on it.

And it's another whole discussion in itself. 

It's a crucial key to the whole equation though.  Make a mistake in any one of those areas,
and you'll pay the price.

Nuff' said.

Clear Skies,

Ray Khan
