I have upgraded my equipment several times over the last few years. Here is my current setup :

Telescopes : Celestron C8  XLT SCT, Orion 80ED refractor

Mount : Celestron CGEM with deep cycle marine battery for power

Cameras - Canon T5 Baader modified by Gary Honis.

(retired) Canon 450D full spectrum modified, Meade DSI first gen OSC for guiding

Image acquisition and processing - Acer Aspire V5 (an awesome netbook with plenty of power and a nice small, portable lightweight design) Backyard EOS software for focusing and taking the images. This program is the best for DSLR Astrophotography.

Observatory - custom modified aluminum 10X12 garden shed with reinforced removable roof. The roof simply slides off the walls and unto wooden rails  attached to the back wall of the shed. This design seems rugged and well proven as it has survived many wind storms including superstorm Sandy.

Photoshop CS 6 for processing, Deep Sky Stacker for stacking and aligning.
