T9 is a 12.5" RCOS telescope based at SSO in Australia. It has a selection of color imaging and photometric VBR filters. Its teamed with a sensitive ST8-XME CCD.
T9 is a prime platform in the southern hemisphere and is capable of brilliant narrowband imaging with several APOD prizes under its belt already. Its a highly reliable telescope which has enabled countless iTelescope users to capture southern glories as well as valuable science data. It has often been used in Hubble Space Telescope support missions.
IMPORTANT NOTES: T9 is externally Guided: Please limit sub-exposure times to 300 seconds or less for best results. Bright stars will bloom or overexpose 120 secs or over. NABG camera. T9 has a very long focal length and is set to guide on exposures of 60sec and over.
