OctansLab

Discover the treasures of the night sky and learn how to capture and process lunar, planetary, wide field and deep sky objects. OctansLab is based in South East Queensland, Australia and without a permanent imaging setup, all the astrophotography gear used has to be portable. The  telescopes including a William Optics GT71 refractor, a William Optics GTF102mm refractor, a Borg55FL and a Celestron RASA8. The  tracking mount used is currently an Avalon Instruments M Zero.

OctansLab also designs & fabricates 3D printed parts and accessories for telescopes, tracking mounts and astrophotography cameras to extend the usability of the equipment.
