    Default Opinions/Images on Astro-Tech AT65EDQ



    Hello, I’m new here.
    I am looking to start wide field deep sky imaging and came across the AT65EDQ, was wondering if anyone had any opinions on this scope and or images taken with it.
    All feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)

    I have one and its AMAZING! I've only been able to take one image with it but I love it as an APO. I would HIGHLY recommend it, especially it being a quadruplet. Below are the Ha and Final image that I was able to capture. I plan on getting a lot data here soon of M78 in Orion!
