  2. Hello, wonderfulll community! I am minutes away from purchasing an Orion 8" f/8 Ritchey-Chretien Astrograph as well as an Orion Atlas EQ-G Mount strictly for imaging.....I use a Canon 350....is this a smart buy??? Thanks, All!!! Gino
  3. Thanks Jarralad and Crovax.....We're all in the same boat of limtations I guess and we must make it work somehow...I am off to photgraph in the clear chilly night! Gino
  4. Thanks...I do refocus constantly...I tried high ISO(1600) settings for quick shots at up to 1/4000 of a second as well as up to 10 Sec exposures at low Iso(100)...maybe I'm just cursed.
  5. I have even used various colored filters to try and illiminate the vicous glow....to no avail. Also, I am using a remote shutter release plus a 2 second delay after that.....
  6. Thanks, everyone. I am using a T-mount adapter so I am shooting through the scope....it's odd becasue through the scope, via eyepieces, I can see the cloud bands etc....then when I insert the camera, all fails. Zero detail...can anyone recomend a fairly "cheap" ccd or webcam......my head is spinning with disapointment and exitment.....I hope I haven't upset our Gassy male planet.
  7. Everytime I shoot Jupiter...regardless of the ISO and exposure time I get a messy blur....any tips? I have a Celestron 130SLT and am using a Canon 450D with a barlow X2.. Thanks!
  8. Very nice....I just get alot of white...one day I'll figure this out.
  9. SmartStar-A Altazimuth/German Equatorial Dual "Cube" Mount This looks to be good deal but I have tendncy to rush into purchases....will it work with my Celestron 130?? Will it greatly improve deep space astrophotography??? UGGhh. Thanks Everyone!!! Gino:iamwithstupid:
  10. Thanks so much....well needed info before I dive into yet anoother purchase!
