LSO CCD Equipment:
Sized specifically to capitalize on the large aperture and very long focal length of
the LSO Classic-Cassegrain telescope, our scope/CCD combination is geared toward the imaging
of very faint and deep sky objects not normally imaged. When members want to image more traditional
bright objects they can attached their own personal CCD or the STL-1001E to either the Takashi flat field
Newtonian or refractor already attached to the telescope. They also have the ability to convert from f/16
to f/8 by inserting the custom built four-element telecompressor thus doubling the field of view.
All imaging can be done from the heated/air conditioned comfort of the Club House and thus avoiding the
cold and heat inside the observatory.
