  1. I think the best advice is to show the type of images that can regularly be achieved with a DSLR and a dedicated astronomical camera so those who are new to the hobby can decide if they want to pay for the extra expense of the latter option. This is what I've done with different modified DSLR cameras over the years: canon 1000D, 450D, 600D, 100D. Nothing special, really -in fact, some can be greatly improved by a more experience hand (vignetting, noise, etc) but it gives an idea of the kind of stuff one can achieve with £200-£300 invested in a DSLR as opposed to ££££s put into a dedicated astro camera.
  2. Hi all, Just a few pictures I managed to get of the Aurora in Iceland last week.
  3. The camera was definitely modded. I think it was taken with a canon 100D, maybe 3 years ago.
  4. Looking into some old memory cards, I found this North America and Pelican nebulae that I took with a 200mm lens but I never managed to upload before. I'm thinking that perhaps the image lacks a bit of colour? Thank you for your comments.
