We’d like to take a moment to give a shout out to our friend and sponsor Ktec Telescopes. Thanks to Stephen and his support we’ve been able to bring this project together and the Skellig Star Party wouldn’t be where it is now without him. Through his expert advice, we know a lot of people who have come to own a Ktec telescope (or five) over the years of being the stockist of the most comprehensive collection of astronomy equipment in Ireland.
Ktec will of course be at Skellig Star Party this year to show off some of the newest gear from various manufacturers. For all you gear heads here is a list of some of the telescopes and other equipment that will be on display.
- Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25
- Celestron Advanced VX 8 Edge HD Goto
- Skywatcher HEQ5 PRO SynScan
- Skywatcher Evostar 80ED DS PRO
- Celestron NexStar 4SE
- Celestron AstroMaster LT 70AZ
- Skywatcher Star Adventurer
- ZWO CCD & CMOS Cameras
- Atik CCD Cameras
These, and a whole host of eyepieces, accessories, and books will be on display, as well as a superb collection of Meteorites.
Don’t forget, Ktec Telescopes are still running their fantastic Complete Astrophotogrpahy package on their site, complete with everything you need to get out under the stars taking amazing photos of night sky objects. Check out these photos taken with the same, if not similar types of kit. It’s a proven and extremely versatile setup.
