Here is a quick rundown on the equipment I use:
The main telescope is now the 10" f/10 LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope made by Meade.This is a
computerized GOTO telescope. It
will automatically point to any object I select from the built-in database of 64,000 objects. The 10" mirror gathers 56% more light than the 8" Newtonian. I've purchased the Tele Vue Rich Field Kit for the LX200. The kit includes a 2" Everbrite diagonal which replaces the standard 1.25" Meade supplied diagonal. The Everbrite diagonal has special coatings that result in 99% reflectivity, a vast improvement over the standard diagonal. Also included is the 55mm Tele Vue Plossl. This 2" eyepiece gives a magnification of 45x with a true field of view of 1.1 degrees.
My secondary telescope is an 8" f4.5 Meade 8800 Newtonian that was bought in 1985. This is a rich-field telescope that gives great views of wide areas of the sky but high-powered planetary views are more difficult with this focal ratio.
For astrophotography, I have an Olympus OM-1 camera body.
Other things I use include my rollup portable table, various star charts, and my trusty eyepiece case.
