TAKING PICTURES WITH A C8
When I’m speaking about the history of Schmidt Cassegrains at star parties, club meetings, or cons, I often get puzzled looks and questions from new amateurs about one of the things I say: “One of the big reasons for the 8-inch SCTs becoming the most popular commercial telescope in the 70s was astrophotography.” What? Everybody knows SCTs aren’t good for taking long exposure deep sky pictures. For that you need a short focal length refractor, right?

I offer my tutorial, consisting of three months of private astrophotography lessons, email and telephone support, for $300.00 US.
The tutorial includes one-on-one remote sessions that are limited to a maximum of one 1.5 hour long session each week and which must be used within the 3 month tutorial period.
The tutorial package also includes one-on-one support for those 3 months using Screen Connect or Teamviewer (remote desktop), voice calls via Skype, e-mail, and telephone support for students anywhere in the world. Although the one-on-one support is limited, due to the number of students and the time involved, it is appreciated if support phone calls, texts and e-mails are kept to a reasonable level.

DarkFrame services and tunes existing Equatorial and Alt-Az Mounts and Telescopes to a much higher level of performance. With our design and engineering capability, we have the ability to produce our own Astronomy products from the ground up, with components sourced locally in the UK.

Going back to our core values means we can also revisit our expertise in low-light and underwater imaging with new assets to create engineered solutions beyond image-processing. Applications would include Marine ROV, video-forensics and low-light CCD cameras.

Building your own range of Telescopes with this level of commitment and background brings something innovative to the UK Amateur Astronomy scene and drives change.

Literally, Watch this Space.
