  • DSLR Astrophotography with a GIANT Refractor Telescope

    28,820 views 6 months ago
    In this video, I try out the William Optics FLT 132 telescope for some deep sky astrophotography in the backyard. It was an extremely cold night in Canada as the temperature dropped to -17C!

    I used my Canon DSLR camera to capture the glorious Orion Nebula through this giant refractor. Be sure to stick around for the image at the end!
