EQUIPMENT

- A GSO Newtonian Telescope OTA 200x1000 

- A Newton TS Optics UNC 200x1000 Telescope. Purchased at the end of 2017, this instrument has a mechanical and a focuser of a better quality than the GSO. The carbon tube is lighter and less subject to dilation

- Refractor achromat Skywatcher 80/400

- Refractor TS Optics 80ED F7 with corrector 0.8x (March 2019)

- Skywatcher NEQ6 Pro mount with a SynScan Goto hand controller  

- Star Adventurer Mini (SAM) mount
  
- Finder 90° angled; great to avoid a stiff neck or lower back pains
  
- Eyepieces: 
     • 32 mm • Omegon Redline SW 70 ° 50.8mm 
        This is the one I use the most. It fully immerses with the sky 
     • 13 mm • Omegon Redline SW 70 ° 50.8mm 
        Also a very comfortable eyepiece. 
     • 8mm Omegon Redline SW 70 ° 50.8mm 
      • 5 mm Omegon Planetary 
      • 12,5 mm Omegon illuminated crosshair reticle  

- Barlow APM 2,7x ED Comacorr

- ADC MK3 atmospheric dispersion corrector 

- Baader MPCC Mark III comma corrector

- Autoguiding: Lacerta MGEN II connected to a 60 mm Altair telescope. No use of computer needed for this device. 
 
- Laser collimator 

- Digital camera Sony Alpha 77 with ASTRODON Inside filter replacement.  Sensor size 6000x4000 px; pixel size 3.9µm

- Color planetary camera Altaïr Astro GPCAM2. Sensor size 1280x960 px; pixel size 3.75µm

- An ACER laptop computer, I5 processor, to drive the GPCAM camera
 
- A ladder, since Newton isn’t the most comfortable telescope 
 
The lens for the classical pictures are:  
     - Sony 16-50 mm f2.8
     - Sigma 70-200 mm f2.8
     - Sony 11-18mm f3.5-4.5
     - Sigma 600mm f8 mirror lens

The N and NE horizons are quite clear despite the presence of some trees. E and SE are clear. To the South there is an impressive cedar (up to 40º) and trees up to a height of 20-25º. The western horizon is clear but the luminous pollution to the NW of the agglomeration of Toulouse, at 50 km, is important
