T8 - 106mm APO Refractor

Very Wide Field. Imaging Missions. Typically used for RGB & Narrowband Imaging. 

T8 is a 106mm Takahashi FSQ telescope based at SSO in Australia. It has a selection of RGB and Narrowband imaging filters. Its teamed with a sensitive FLI Microline CCD and a full house filter wheel.

T8 is a prime imaging platform in the southern hemisphere with exceptional optics and will be able to gather data of APOD winning quality.

T9 - 127mm APO Refractor

T9 is a wide-field imaging system dedicated to the astro-imager.

The flat-field, fast focal ratio, and short focal length of the NP127fli is a perfect match for the large CCD chip in it's FLI ProLine PL16803 camera. This Tele Vue telescope has superb optics.

Together they produce over a 3° field of beautifully sharp stars.

T12 - 106mm APO Refractor

Very Wide Field Telescope. Typically used for Wide Field RGB / Narrowband Imaging. FITS and TIF file formats. Dark Frame calibration data is available for  60, 120, 180, 300, 600, 900  second exposures. Binx1 - Binx2.

T12 features a high quality Grade 1 FLI CCD. Its Internal Off Axis (MOAG) guidance system can provide high accuracy during even long exposures.

T13 - 90mm APO Refractor

Typically used for imaging of wide field targets. One Shot Colour.

The T13 Telescope is also part of the iTelescope outreach program run in partnership with the ANU Research School for Astronomy & Astrophysics, to also be used by the general public as an educational tool.

T17 - 430mm Reflector

T17 is a Science Platform. Normally used for Science Missions, Deep Photometry, Narrowband and 'Extended Red' light IR imaging. It is equipped with a FLI ProLine E2V CCD47-10-1-109 CCD. that has 'extended red sensitivity' when compared to standard CCD’s. Giving it an almost 'Near Infrared' mission profile.

T17 is a unique telescope. T17 holds multiple world record achievements for the most distant objects imaged by amateur astronomers.  

T17 can detect extremely distant galaxies in 300 sec exposures. Some of its targets have been the most distant and oldest ever imaged on a publicly accessible telescope.

If you wanted to bring out stars hidden in nebula with its Helium filter or chase targets that are very faint, then this CCD will do the job. Its extremely sensitive, so much so that OVER exposure becomes an issue and users should take care since its CCD is of the NABG variety.

T17 is a valuable science asset to iTelescope Siding Spring Observatory.

Telescope 30 - 500mm Reflector

Deep Field. Hybrid Missions. Typically used for Photometry and Imaging. 

The Planewave Ascension 200HR mount is so accurate whilst tracking that iTelescope Admin have disabled active guidance, with a corresponding decrease in session setup time when imaging.

Note: T30 is fitted with a very sensitive  Non Anti Blooming Gate (NABG) CCD. Beware of long exposures on moderate to bright stars or targets and use a bracket of short exposures or use software to repair any blooming artifacts.

T31-Image-ACP-sml.jpg

T31 - 500mm Reflector

Deep Field. Hybrid Missions. Typically used for Photometry and Imaging.

T31 is fitted with a 0.66 Focal reducer.

The Planewave Ascension 200HR mount is so accurate whilst tracking that iTelescope Admin have disabled active guidance, with a corresponding decrease in session setup time when imaging.

T32 - 413mm Reflector

T32 features a Huge CCD chip with an amazingly wide FoV. Matched up with the wonderful Planewave mount this telescope can deliver incredable data. Note: VERY large FITs files - 32Mb Binx1

FITS and TIF file formats. Dark Frame calibration data is available for  60, 120, 180, 300 & 600 second exposures. Binx1 - Binx2.  ABG. Recommended Maximum Exposure 300 secs.

The Planewave Ascension 200HR mount is so accurate whilst tracking that iTelescope Admin have disabled active guidance, with a corresponding decrease in session setup time when imaging.

t33-image.jpg

T33 - 400mm Reflector

T33 features a large CCD chip with a great FoV. Matched up with the wonderful Paramount PME mount and off axis guidance this telescope will deliver incredable data.

Due to the very fast optical design, a bright moon light may impact some exposures.  Select targets well away from the moon position and use narrowband filters for quality data during bright moon periods.

T33 is also best used on calm, low wind nights.
