  1. Ah that would explain it then, thanks guys
  2. Hey all, haven't been on here for a few days, been working long days Last night was the first night since New Year's Eve (I think) that it hasn't been cloudy, so I managed to get the scope out, I connected the camera to it hoping to get some pics, but for some reason it's not letting me adjust the Aperture Exposure and ISO adjust fine, the camera is in full manual mode, auto focus is turned off and I set the focus manually, noise reduction is turned off, not sure if either of those settings would stop me adjusting the Aperture or not? Just wondering if anyone can shed some light? The camera is a Nikon D3300 Thanks Jay
  3. Woops, stupid tapatalk thought I was on a different forum, so ignore that, my bad
  4. Now we're in my hobby realm sign up on stargazers lounge mate www.stargazerslounge.com a very helpful and friendly bunch, there's loads of people on there that have the Dobsonian telescopes, me being one of them all you could ever want to know can be found on there, I'm on there under the same username as here
  5. Yeah, I did try taking some shots of the moon through the eyepiece, found it very difficult to keep my phone in the right place, I ordered a mount to hold my phone the other day, just waiting for it to arrive then I'll give it another shot
  6. I have a telescope mount for my camera, ordered one to hold my Iphone too but that hasn't arrived yet Rik, cheers mate, I only noticed the imaging forum today, have started reading through the tutorials and tips now
  7. Cheers guys, I'll change those settings now
  8. Ah very good point, never thought of doing that, thanks mate
  9. Just thought I would post this for those that had the same problem as me and doesn't know how to do it. Here is the link: http://www.instructables.com/id/Astrophotography-Star-Photo-Stacking/?ALLSTEPS I found it very helpful
  10. Definitely mate, I live about 10 miles away from any street light and I was viewing about an hour and a half before moonrise so the sky was perfect
  11. Ah maybe I won't use Lightroom for it then lol

  13. Thanks guys now it makes more sense, will download the software now Dan, yeah I always shoot in RAW, pics turn out a lot better Can you use Lightroom for stacking? I have that now
  14. I've seen a fair few people mention this, just wondering what it is and how you do it? Haha Also, subs, what is that? Lol Sorry, probably stupid questions but this is my first DSLR so I really have no idea
