Translated, I believe he’s using an [ASA 8H astrograph](http://www.optcorp.com/asa-8inch-8h-hyperbolic-astrograph-3inch-focuser-prokit.html) with a [Finger Lakes Imaging 16803 camera](http://www.optcorp.com/fli-proline-kaf-16803-ccd-camera-65mm-shutter.html). He’s probably using something like a [Losmandy G11](http://www.losmandy.com/g-11.html) to carry it. With all the bells and whistles, that’s about USD$30k of equipment.

Three 180 second luminance shots, and one 120 second RGB (that’s three shots; the FLI 16803 is monochrome, so he shot 120 sec through a red filter, 120 sec through a green filter, and 120 sec through a blue filter). In total, six images, stacked and processed to get this image we see.
