My Equipment

My gear includes a diverse range of telescopes and cameras, each selected and used for specific needs: capturing the deep sky objects, details of planetary surfaces, and the dynamic features of our Sun. Below are the details about the gear I use.

Deep Sky Imaging

My primary imaging telescope at the moment is a 122mm APO refractor SV550 from SvBony. I purchased this telescope in summer 2023 before the official sales started. You can check out a video where I unbox this telescope and show the whole setup process including the cable management that I try to pay a lot of attention to.

Below is the list of additional equipment I use with 122mm APO:

Planetary Imaging

I set up this telescope in October 2023 with a purpose to capture planet Jupiter during its opposition period. Eventually, I was able to capture a Timelapse of the full rotation of the biggest planet in our Solar System. You can check out this animation by following the link.
