Since 1999, I have done casual star gazing using telescopes:

  • 8″ Celestron SCT with Celestron Goto Mount
  • Televue 70mm Pronto Refractor with Skywatcher AZ-Gti Mount
  • Televue 102mm Genesis Refractor (Flourite) on Televue Gibralter Mount
  • Unistellar eVscope Smart Telescope

I never got into anything that could take astrophotographs until recently. I got a camera and controller from ZWO for the Pronto but after getting the eVscope, all that was too much work and effort. The eVscope sets up and is already providing color(!) images of nebula in 10 minutes or less.

None of these images are high quality and I do not consider them astrophotographs per se. But they are very indicative of what you see at the eyepiece or on a smartphone when using this telescope.
