  1. I think you use the wrong graph. This is the correct one: Unfortunately, it looks like the Canon 80D is "NOT as isoless as" Nikon 5300 which commonly recommended using ISO200 for AP CMIIW
  2. Lots of useful information in this free video -> http://www.astronomersdoitinthedark.com/dslr_llrgb_tutorial.php HTH Ketut
  3. This is the Tamron version -> Andromeda You will find Tamron vs AT65EDQ images on that page also.
  4. I don't know how serious or how big is your interest in AP. If I were you, I will do this: - Start with Orion Sirius & small triplet refractor (no more than 480mm) - Learn how to precise polar alignment, and take a bunch of 1-2min unguided exposure with SGPro+PlateSolve2 - Learn how to process the image with Astro Pixel Processor or PixInsight - Next...add a guide system and learn PHD2 - Next...monochrome + lrgb & nb filter - Mini ROR Obs maybe... - Next...the best part in this hobby, swap to CEM60 or GM811G or big jump to Mach 1 + bigger aperture scope
  5. 1600MM-C (mine is V3 not Pro) + H-alpha only as first step (filter wheel + other filters & auto focus can be added later). More fun, believe me! You will thank me later. Ketut
  6. No eyepiece. All you need is t-ring & 2" t-adapter for your nikon (prime focus imaging). You need guide scope if you want to guide. But I'm sure you can get round stars with +/-1min subs unguided. Alternative -> mini guide scope Alternative -> setup Tripod
  7. For your consideration... I just switched from 60D to 1600MM-C. I shoot h-alpha only as my first step with this new camera. And I never look back on my 60D ever since, except for landscape astrophotography. My 1600MM-C first light, with AT65EDQ ~ TSAPO65Q, 12nm Astronomik H-alpha. Ketut
  8. I use SGPro+PlateSolve2 -> framing, centering, plate solving, & start imaging less than 5 min
  9. FYI, this guy knew how to use optimally his Star Adventurer & HEQ5 -> Eric
  10. Well...PC for sure. SGPro+PlateSolve2: framing, centering, & start imaging less than 5min. No need gps, nor star alignment. Save your time & energy. Justmy2cents
  11. ASI1600MM-C, Astronomik Ha 12nm, AT65EDQ, Celestron AVX, 127 lights @180sec. I just switched from 60D full spectrum to ASI1600mm-C. Here the reasons why: - I want imaging from my front yard. I live in red zone (Denpasar City) - I want imaging every night as long as the cloud allowed - I don't want to drive 2hrs to a dark zone like I used to with 60D - I only have AVX, very long exposure is not my option. I hate eggy stars especially with my AT6RC Cheers Ketut
  12. SGPro + PlateSolve2, framing, centering, and start imaging less than 5min
