Stuff I own now...From December 2008 until the moment I'm last reviewing this page (Spring 2013), this is what I use/have:
I also have a load of accessories such as the Takahashi focal reducer and the extender for the FSQ, a FlipFlat (to generate flat field images), a TAKometer (to control camera angle from the computer), a TeleVue Powermate x4 I barely use, two RoboFocus focusers, a Moonlite electronic focuser also sitting on a shelf, a whole bunch of eyepieces, dozens of adapters of all sizes and colors (well, they're almost all black :-), and a long etc of "stuff"...
If I were to include EVERYTHING I take with me to an imaging session I'd also have to include my EEE ASUS PC 900 (8.9") laptop (a laptop that runs off 12v and has no hard drive - it uses a solid state drive - ideal for setting up remotely and running off deep cycle 12v batteries for like forever, and that doesn't require any power inverter/converter since it can connect directly to a typical deep cycle 12v battery), five deep-cycle marine batteries (to power up laptop, mount, cameras, robofocus, etc), two battery packs (I use them only in case of emergency or for other stuff non-astro related while I'm out on a hilltop or camping), portable chair/table, a pair of binoculars, a green laser pointer that I practically never use, miscellaneous camping stuff - including a large tent/canopy - and some other "utility" gear as I call it.
Also, my good old 2006 Acura MDX played a huge role in my astro outings, of course - having driven well over 60,000 miles just going places to do astrophotography. The MDX however was totaled after I ran into a poor deer in a fast highway late August 2012. The car had almost 130,000 miles when that happened, but I'm sure it could have gone to another 130k if this unfortunate incident never happened. I came out okay from the accident by the way, although the poor deer didn't make it... Neither my car. The replacement was a 2009 Honda Pilot Touring that I've got in January 2013 which so far has been behaving like a champ.
Stuff I've owned in the pastHere's a complete list of all the astro gear I've owned at some point or another, including gear I currently own, in no particular order:
Pictures of stuff
My "Signature gear". The FSQ and the STL right before an imaging session at Dinosaur Point in 2009.
FSQ106 and STL11k
More of the same, here at Henry Coe State Park, also in 2009. This is the equipment that has produced almost all of my most popular images.
NP101 and C11 and...
