ASTRONOMICAL IMAGING BY BRAD WALLIS
AND ROBERT PROVIN




Presented here are some of the latest images produced over the past months by Brad Wallis and
Robert Provin. The majority of these images were taken with Astro-Physics EDF refractors which
feature superior color correction and flat photographic fields covering up to 4x5 inch format films.
The authors also employLosmandy GM-200 equatorial mounts and SBIG ST-4 autoguiders.

Brad Wallis has recently acquired a 12.5 inch f/9 Ritchey-Chretien. Be sure and check out the
CCD and photographic images produced with this instrument.
