This is my Observatory Telescope that resides inside the dome in New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada. It consists of the Planewave CDK 12.5 inch (0.32 m) f/8 Corrected Dall-Kirkham Astrograph telescope sitting on the Astro-Physics 1200 GTO goto Mount. The scope is attached to the Mount via a Losmandy dovetail, and uses a Televue 85mm, f/7, APO (Doublet) Refractor, Using KW Telescope’s KQIQ autoguider. The system is not used visually (even though I some times, just take a peak just for the fun of it), but rather is used with the Mallincam Xrtreme, Mallincam Signature camera, and the Mallincam SSI colour Camera. These devised are connected to the Internet and routinely I broadcast live on the Internet through Night Skies Network the objects that I am currently viewing. The system allows we to either control the itself from inside the observatory or remotely from the comfort of my home office.
