A bit off topic, but what sort of backyard telescope captures images like this?

A 14-inch one - www.chappelastro.com...

Which looks like this, size-wise:

I got a feeling Earth is due seems like a lot more passing by us. Recently one came out of nowhere , Wonder if it's a field/batch of them coming our way ?

With a telescope..

Interesting though!


According to his twitter he used an 8" telescope. They start at about $500 I think. You get what you pay for though. My guess is that his setup with lens and camera is more in the $2000 area.

For $2k , you can have quite a capability. My setup is legacy hardware with some newer tweaks. The Meade is a reference spotter for the Celestron C8. All digital eyepieces, Starry Night software. Tracking only, no goto's. Comet scanner, not an astro-photographer.
