Celestron C8 HyperStar on CGE mount guided with Meade DSX-90


Celestron C8 XLT (with Starlight Express SXV-H9C camera on HyperStar lens) on CGE mount guided with Meade DSX-90 using Meade DSI pro camera. Guiding is through a Shoestring Astronomy GPUSB interface going to the CGE guide port. A Belkin powered 4 port USB 2.0 hub allows connecting all of the hardware. Guiding software is AstroArt 4.0 or PHD Guiding v1.10. This scope relplaced my original C8 NexStar 8 GPS which I gave to my son-in-law. Now I have a nice scope to observe through in Fresno while I visit the grandchildren :-)
