  1. I'm surprised you risk using a laser in SW London
  2. Or if you have one could use a webcam as has smaller pixels usually then a dslr. Could look at the astronomy calculator tool to see the effect on imaging the Moon with your equipment Astronomy Tools under the Resources menu on this site
  3. Thank you for the focal distance on your lens, I hadn't thought you were that end of your zoom. The trees are further away then I had assumed.
  4. You might like to take a look at this thread https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/228101-the-no-eq-dso-challenge
  5. Is that 15 seconds in all directions? Or are you working with a very long focal length
  6. What is the operating system on the machine you will use to control your webcam?
  7. So many lovely cracking images today. @scotty1 at what zoom level was that please? Edit I think that's at the 55mm end
  8. Point the camera in the right direction and take a photo anyway it will see more than you will just watch for total wipe out if the sky is very light by diligent control of iso are my thoughts
  9. For some reason the vintage takumar lens isn't focusing to infinity...argh... I'll have you see if I've got to fiddle with it
  10. I use dslr controller connected using the camera usb cable into an OTG cable into my phone or tablet, 2012 and a 2014 Android devices on a canon camera older than yours. They're is a free remote trigger app so you can test your camera and Android device before getting the full app. Dslr controller let's me control everything and a nice big screen to focus using. I have installed magic lantern as well but prefer using the. Android app.
