The Pioneering CCD Company. In the past 10 years SBIG has been the pioneer in the electronic imaging industry.
They have a reputation for outstanding quality products and their goal is to design and manufacture the best astronomical instrumentation in the world, at a price an amateur can afford.
Alcor Systems offer a great range of All Sky cameras, and have great "after sales" support.
The purpose of these systems is to carry out all sky (180°x180°) surveillance of the night or day sky, and in a continuous fashion. It is possible to assess, in real time, the night sky quality, and to record fast phenomena (meteors and fireballs) or slower (satellites, rockets, noctilucent clouds, zodiacal light, aurora, airglow ....).
RC Optical Systems continues to be the World's largest manufacturer of Ritchey-Chrétien telescopes.
They have delivered and support hundreds of telescopes and imaging systems worldwide.
Dedicated to craftsmanship. Astro-Physics has been developing telescopes and accessories for the advanced amateur since 1975.
They now offer an extensive line of precision telescopes and mountings, all with outstanding performance for a variety of observing needs.
The Paramount ME is built for the digital age, featuring integrated telescope and CCD camera control, unattended start-up and automated operation, 7 arc seconds or less peak-to-peak periodic error before correction, and precision guided or unguided tracking (using TPoint and ProTrack). It defines new levels of reliability, productivity and performance. Hefting up to 68 kg (150 lbs) of astronomical equipment, and designed for uninterrupted operation, the Paramount ME can be used as a remote or Internet Astronomy® solution. The result is unsurpassed image quality and observatory performance.
Imaging products for the serious astrophotographer. Astrodon Tru-Balance RGB filters have revolutionized CCD imaging. Their popularity is due to ease-of-use, high optical throughput and great resulting color for galaxies, star clusters and nebulae.
MelbMeadeScopes started as a local bunch of Aussie GOTO scope users and evolved into an Australia wide and International meeting place for the astro amateur or semi-pro. Catering for those using Advanced Telescopes and Mounts, CCD's, DSLR's, Observatories.
They make contact, exchange thoughts, setup ideas, have a few laughs and help if they can. They are dedicated to the growth of advanced amateur astronomy in Oz.
