  4. please check here. you will need all the details for them. http://www.astronomyforum.net/astrophotography-forum/197165-few-stuff-taken-my-kit-lens.html http://www.astronomyforum.net/astrophotography-forum/197850-m8-m20-sigma-50-500mm-lens.html http://www.astronomyforum.net/astrophotography-forum/156345-eta-carina-nebula-ngc3372-widefield.html
  5. thanks. no its not. all images are less than 1 hour of data. between 5min and 45min. subs are between 8sec and 30sec. i can search my data and give exact details if you want.
  6. all of these except for the last one taken with a nexstar GT mount bought from ebay for 70$. most of these are few years old. now i have a good setup but this is how i started and fell in love with this hobby. 55-300mm lens + D5100, eta carinae 55-300mm lens + D5100, lagoon+trifid 50-500mm tamron + D5100, lagoon 50-500mm tamron + D5100, omega centauri 6" newtonian + D5100, orion 55-300mm + D5100, rosette 55-300mm + D5100 50-500mm + D5100, trifid 55-300mm + D5100, orion tripod, D5300, 50mm prime, southern sky
  7. also double clusters or Pleiades but don't expect nebulasity in short exposes.
  8. Andromeda should be an easy bright target in the west if you want to try before 10pm
  9. if the wind is a big issue, you should consider a refractor than large Newtonian/RC or SCT tubes. they all will act like a sail in the wind.
  10. these mounts are in entrirly different class than star adventurer mounts. you will not loose any subs due to tracking errors if you are guiding and there is no much wind. i took the above with occasional wind so the subs are limited to 5min. i had to remove 2 subs out of 38 due to strong wind bloating the stars. thanks.
  11. Looks like Skywatcher 250/1200 OTA is around 14.5kg, I'm using an Orion 10" F3.9 Newtonian Astrograph + EQ6-R pro without any issue. its an 18kg/40lb setup with accessories and i can get 15min subs or more if needed and out of the box 0.6-0.7 arc second total RMS. EQ6-R pro can handle 20kg AP gear according to manual and user experience. here is my report on the setup if it helps. http://www.astronomyforum.net/astronomy-reports-forum/259561-guiding-eq6-r-pro-40lb-18kg-ap-gear.html note that this setup ( and any large OTA regardless of the weight) will be very sensitive to the wind. Also both mount and OTA are heavy, not easy to handle/transport. manual says payload : 20kg (for astrophotography) link to SGL EQ6-R pro owners club setup is new so i haven't had the chance to get many images. this is the one i have completed so far. taken with D5300a DSLR other reviews. https://astrojolo.com/gears/sky-watcher-eq6-r-review/ https://www.darkframeoptics.com/blog/mount-performance-charts-1
  12. cheap 58mm uv/it cut filter for my 55-300mm nikkor lens so i can use it with my astro modded (full spectrum mod) DSLR.
