  1. My best Jupiter shot so far: Meade 90mm f8.8 refractor. Camera was modded Logitech C310, with 2x barlow. 20 sec video, stacked in AutoStakkert, processed in RegiStax.
  2. Thanks! I simply can't wait for mars and saturn to be at opposition.
  3. Another Jupiter shot, with a 2x barlow this time:
  4. The mars one wasnt mine. it was @tooth_dr's. And only the Jupiter with the GRS is mine.
  5. Based on what you said, a nextstar 8SE is the best compromise for both visual and astrophotography. The long focal ratio allows good views of planets. Most would agree, a 16in+ apeture SCT would be a "dream telescope" The 8in aperture allows good views of DSOs and Planets. And it is GoTo.
  6. Ah, I see. So you get about equivalent quality.
  7. My only "complaint" is that Jupiter is a little while from being an evening planet, and it is the perfect photographic planet.
  8. A while ago, I modified a Logitech C310 for astrophotography, and here are the various pictures I have taken: Telescope specs is Meade 90mm f8.8 refractor. Webcam was used in prime focus. Moon Saturn
  9. As I was browsing through orions webcams, I saw that a 1.3mp camera costs $70. The (software enhanced? What does that mean?)5mp Logitech c310 I have modified costs only $30. Is it really better than the commercial one? Or is there a catch in the 'software enhanced'?
  10. Wow. That looks almost HST quality. That really needs more magnification.
  11. I have one question: Can you photograph even "bright" DSO's (M42) practally with an iPhone and a 8-10in non-GoTo dob? I know you can, (ive got camera glimpses with a 3.5 in) but is it practical? And what about the brighter galaxies/planetary nebulas? (M27, M57, Virgo Supercluster?)
  12. We already have a decent eyepiece collection (a beginner 9mm, zhrunell 14.5mm long eye relief fully multi coated, zhrunell 20mm super-wide angle, and zhrunell 20mm long eye relief, and a basic 2x Barlow) the 35mm would be a nice addition, and it is 2in.
  13. It would be an orion skyquest, they already have red dot finders. We would get a 35mm eyepiece+a barlow if we got the 8in. 10in only has a 25mm.
  14. Me and ny dad are considering getting an 8 or 10in dob. Money is quite tight however, and I have 2 questions: 1. What DSO can you see with a 10in that you cant with an 8in? 2. What particular DSO's are noticeably "better" in 10in compared to 8in? I have mag 4.7 skies.
