Holy crap. Nice rig. Photo Sensor on eyepiece adapter or Digital Camera?

I'm still learning before I plunk the dough.

Thanks - A - Million. Totally Impressive. :up

I/we bow to you. Nice set up man.

I envy you. I will have to show the wife that photo of your stuff and tell her that you are what I wish to strive for (equipment wise). I'll see how that goes.... At one point she said I could invest up to $5000.00 in a system (I seriously doubt her at the current time
(

It would be nice to see ATS set up a thread or area just for our ATS space guys. So they can show off their finds/works etc.

thank you.

Thanks! For the shuttle shots I used a Canon XTi at prime focus (no eyepiece, the light path goes straight to the CCD). Since you guys enjoyed the SRB sep photos I figure I may as well share a couple of others from early in the launch.

Just after clearing the tower (people's heads were in the way on the tower shot for this launch - they were standing about 100 yards away on top of a bench on a pier and had no idea that they were blocking my view):

Thanks! Yeah, some kind of amateur astronomy section or thread would be awesome. I know Bosb33r has a great rig too. $5,000 would buy everything you see in that photo.
