10 Good
  1. Thanks for the tip that makes it look so much better!
  2. yeah the focus does seem to be a bit off, I'm using a skywatcher 200p. Liveview with 10x zoom sounds handy! I shall have a look around, I was planning on using my transformer TF101 to check the images before I was finished, but didn't have enough time before the moon was gone.
  3. These are the first images I've taken of the moon, they didn't come out to bad, would of probably been better if I can more than 30minutes! stupid clouds After taking them I realised I was still on iso 800 I believe it should of been on 100/200 Hopefully it wont be another 2months before I can see the night sky again btw trying to check to see if you get a good image is a pain on the canon 400d 's small screen, any good digital slr recommendations?

  4. Hey, so i'm looking into getting my first telescope with the aim to start some astro-photography of the moon with hopefully more all-round general night viewing. originally I thought about getting the Skywatcher Explorer 150P EQ3-2 but after reading more on here about what I want to do and what I can actually achieve it seems the Skywatcher Explorer 200P EQ5 is more suited, Something I was hoping to get some insight to was the difference between the Skywatcher 200p and the 200p DS. Oh and one more thing to attach a DSLR to these scopes do you need a specific camera or just a connector, as I already have a canon 400D and would hopefully use that. Any other suggestions/recommendations of telescopes is welcome! Matt
