  1. A lot of info in this site for astrophoto: http://www.lonelyspeck.com/beginner-astrophotography-kit/ I just bought Canon 760d. Great general purpose camera. Best lenses are the primes ( no zoom at all). Wide 10-20, low f = 1.4 to 2.8. Good luck.
  2. Took up the old interest to stargaze since beeing kid. Bought the following equipment: Celestron NexStar 130 SLT Powerpack celestron T2-Pentax T ring with x 2 barlow to reach focus. Canon 760d EF 50 mm f/1.8 STM old Panasonic tripod. Now waiting for the T2-canon adapter and the night to arrive little sooner than 22. My goals is to get some good photos of M31 and Moon and whatever else poops up in my viewer. Im also keen of getting some widefield photos of milkyway. Next on my list to buy is an 10 mm Samyang/Rokinon and a wifi remote to NexStar. Its really fun to learn take night photos with DSLR. The 760d looks to me take really good night photos compared to my wifes Pentax K-x and my brothers canon 600d. Wish me good luck [emoji1] Best regards Marcus

  4. Hi. Just bought one 760d. Waiting for the T2-canon adapter to use it on my Nexstar 130 SLT. Did some nightsky yesterday with EF 50 mm STM, 20 sec with f2.8 : just amazing shoots. So much detail. This compared to my brothers old 600d with some "extra stars" in it.( cant clean out all 20+ hot/dead pixels) 760 is just an amazing camera to me. I will post some pics later, now im just a beginner in astrophoto.
