Refractor William Optics ZenithStar 103mm

My William Optics ZenithStar 103mm

General Description

Telescope brand:   William Optics
Telescope model:   ZenitStar 103mm
Telescope style:   Refractor
Focal ratio:   f/6.9
Telescope aperture:   103mm
This is my Williams Optics ZenithStar 103mm refractor telescope. It has a 50mm guide scope using an ASI290mm camera. It is also equipped with an Agena Multi-Reticle Reflex Finder.
I currently have a 28mm William Optics Swan 2" 72° eyepiece and a 40mm William Optics Swan 2" 72° eyepiece.
I am using RotoLocks for the tracking scope to hold the ASI290mm camera in place. I also have RotoLocks for both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces for the scope.
With the 0.8 William Optics Flattener/Focal reducer (6AII) the rig is f/5.5.

The main camera to use with this configuration will be my ASI533MM, which you can see mounted here along with the RPi running StellarMate OS. There is a 4TB external HD mounted below the RPi.
Yes, tracking scope needs to be straightened...that wasn't done at time of image.
