Celestron CG-11 &
Orion ShortTube™ 80 mm Refractor

Richard Berry CCD Cookbook CB245 camera built by David Haworth is mounted on the Orion ShortTube™ 80 mm aperture rich-field refractor, f/5 focal ratio, 400 mm focal length. The Orion 80 mm is mounted on top of a CG-11 using Losmandy dovetail plate and rings. The Celestron CG-11 is used as a finder for the Orion 80 mm with the CCD camera. A 4 second CCD camera exposure through the Orion 80 mm refractor can see fainter objects than can be seen with the CG-11 telescope.
