My beautiful Telescope

So,this is one of my telescopes,N.1 in New Mexico hosted at May Hill,affiliate to


Observatory: Mayhill, New Mexico (New Mexico Skies) – MPC H06

(TEL T5  0.25-m f/3.4 astrograph + CCD)

UTC Minus 7:00. Daylight savings time is observed

Minimum Target Elevation: Approx 15-25 Degrees

N 32° 54’    Decimal: 32.9 North

W 105° 31’ Decimal: 105.5 West

Elevation: 2,225 metres (7,298 ft)

Operational Notes

Medium Wide – Deep Field. Science Platform. Typically used for Science Missions. Photometry and Narrowband Imaging. FITS and TIF file formats. Sub-exposure times should be kept to 60, 120, 180, 300, 600 seconds for optimal results. Binx1 – Binx2. Non Anti Bloom Gate (NABG) CCD. Bright stars will bloom or bleed in long exposures.

T5 is one of the busiest remote telescopes on the iTelescope Network. It allows its many drivers to gather valuable science data with its moderate wide angle FoV and sharp Takahashi optics. Coupled with its ST10XME CCD NABG camera, T5 can go very deep and wide with ease and very high reliability. But care should be taken by those new to NABG cameras.
