Thanks for the reply, I'm glad there is data to get out of the images. I'll have to give getting the coma corrected as I did wonder why with the alignment some stars had still seemed to trail but you have answered that question.
Hi guys, So I tried photographing M45 and M31 the other night. I am struggling with the processing and wondering if there is anything I can do with the images or if I need better data ( the moon was quite bright ). I can't remember the exact settings for the images but they have been stacked in DSS. If anyone could look it would be much appreciated. https://1drv.ms/f/s!At2HsbO3QDb610ISoRUR5gQEQOhL
Any recommendations to the alternative for the 130pds? Thank you for all the responses, would it be good assumption that I can give astrophotography a shot with the mount, scope and camera to see how it is and if I enjoy and to then looking into the other bits I need in regards to guiding?
Hi All, I am looking to get into astrophotography and thought this would be the best place to ask the questions that I have. I was looking at getting the HEQ5 equitorial mount and something like the 130pds for a telescope. What else would I need (Other than camera) and also I will have no idea how to use the mount which will be a learning curve for me. If there is anything I should look into or learn before hand if you could let me know that would be great!
