Celstron C14 - TELESCOPE
Now I am using my CELESTRON C14  reflector (see pictures below) for lunar, solar, planetary and mainly for deep sky imaging.
Have a look at my picture gallery for images which i shot with the C14 and the 10D Canon DSLR, or have a look at the pages showing my Gemini 41 mount and the building of the permanent pier or my Astrocameras by navigating the menus on the left.

  C14-Hyperstar-QHY8 and Cabling prototype
C14 with CCD Camera QHY8 mounted on the Hyperstar Lens.

The special cabling device is on the right side of the Hyperstar.This cabling device ELIMINATES ALL Spikes around stars!

To eliminate the ugly spikes introduced by the cables of the CCD camera i built a device which keeps the cabling precisely in a way that
ALL SPIKES are eliminated! 
In addition i used right angle plugs for the power and USB cable. The original cables of the QHY8 also introduce spikes
