Hi, was out Tues night this week set up early, and waited for dark, was looking at Cassiopeia clusters on the bottom m tail half way down, thought i would put the eos 300d on and have a go at it.!! well what a pain trying to look though the small view finder in the camera and focus, i had to put Barlow in eos T ring for more mag, just could not see much. Took a few shots!! 001 frame dont know what this is suppose to be two clusters?!! i had to keep taking the camera out of tube and putting ep on to make sure object was still there and in some sort of focus.
using bulb exposure, remote switch, mirror lock up, raw mode, canon eos 300d with eos ring with Barlow screwed in and straight up scope barrel focuses tube. SO FRUSTRATING. I even bought the book "making every photon count" this suppose to be for beginners, i would hate to see the book for experts, talk about rocket science!! i am getting my head round it! slowly.
