    Hello all my name is Tyler Bowman I'm part on my society club here in town I'm looking into getting my feet wet in astrophotography. I started this wonderful journey back this july on my sons birthday he go a cheap'o celestron 70mm AZ which lasted a whole month before I got a bresser exos 1 mount along with a Celestron sct 6 inch which I noticed a significant difference within the quality. Now I have a orion st 120 which has CA but I don't care its a great little scope I have only 3 eyepieces which is a MEADE 5000 hd-60 18mm, EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 28/68 AND A 6.7 82 and 1CELESTRON ULTIMA SERIES barlow. Now I'm on the look out for a GOTO mount and cheers fellows, cant wait to hear from yall
