Works really well

I haven't tried anything fancy yet, but the camera works as expected. When I bought it I saw that it was marketed as a planetary camera, but that doesn't do it any justice. It also works really well for deep space objects. Now if I only can get the tracking of my Nexstar 6se to behave.

Very pleased with the service and product

The camera I ordered came earlier than I had hoped for. The service at OPT is very good.

First planetary camera

I have not a good clear night sky, but even at poor atmospheric conditions I took a few excellent photos of some clusters , orion nebula and of course the moon. I am learning to use it. Optcorp has a excellent customer service. I am from Mexico and I was attended in Spanish, great!!. I hope upgrade my equatorial mount soon. Clear Sky's from Mexico!!!
