In this video, I’ll use the biggest astrophotography telescope I’ve EVER had to shoot the glorious M13 star cluster from my backyard. The Explore Scientific ED140 CF APO is an incredible instrument for deep sky astrophotography.
This triplet apochromatic refractor has a focal lenght of 910mm and an f-ratio of 6.5. The final image of the Great Hercules Cluster uses 2 Hours and 9 minutes (129 frames) worth of total integrated exposure time.
A special thanks to Greg at Explore Scientific for setting this up. I was not paid to endorse this product! And yes, I have to give it back:)
