Not exactly a glamour shot of my newly completed astrograph, an 18" focal length f/4 astrograph with Clement focuser and (4) dove tail plates for attaching additional instruments. Instruments like a wide field ST8300 camera on top and an off axis guide scope for those objects with unusual orbits. Not shown is the STIL11000M camera for it. Attached as well is the solid model of it on an AP1200 mount for scaleā€¦

Here is an image of the F/4 18" focus astrograph installed at Sierra Chaparral Observatory. Remote controlled and solar powered.
