  1. @PeterStudz it was totally unexpected. I woke up that morning and was surprised to see many stars. Then I noticed the faint fuzzy Grey cloud band beside the constellation Scorpius and was thinking, hmm... could it be the Milky Way? Then I rushed off to grab my phone to check out in Stellarium, and heck yes, it's the Milky Way! Can't tell how excited I really was!
  2. This is my first time observing and taking pictures of the Milky Way. In Bortle 5 zone, the Milky Way appears as a faint smudge of clouds. It is located at the southern side of the sky, near the constellation of Scorpius and Sagittarius. Equipment: Huawei P40 Pro on tripod ISO: 500 Exposure: 30s Time: 6:00 a.m. Location: Perak, Malaysia
  3. Taken in Malaysia. Equipment used: Huawei P40 Pro mounted on cheap spotting scope.
  4. Thanks, Corncrake for the update. Just too bad, DSS is the stacking software that I always use! Where can I read about this problem DSS have with 600d?
  5. I see. Thanks, happy-kat! I'll surely check it out!
  6. Thanks! I've been using the Huawei P40 Pro for nearly 3 months and quite happy with the images it produces. What's a starstax?
  7. This is my first time attempting to image the ISS Transit and star trails. Not as great, but I'm very excited about that! Any advice and suggestions are welcomed! Thanks in advance! Taken with Huawei P40 Pro ISO: 150 (first picture) and 50 (second picture) Exposure time: 30s

    Hi and welcome to the forum! With dark sky there's a lot that you can see. Usually people will recommend you to get a 6 or 8 inch dobsonian for deep sky viewing since you can see more with a bigger aperture (but collimation is required for a dobsonian!) For lunar, planetary and maybe some bright DSOs a refractor will do fine. Anyway, enjoy yourself here! Zhi Qi
  9. @Alien 13 @Corncrake thanks for your suggestions! The 70d sounds great, let me see if I can try to stretch my budget to get that
  10. By the way what advantages does the Canon 60d have over the 600d? Thanks in advance.
  11. @Alien 13 thanks for the suggestion. Does the Canon 60d have any flip screen like the 600d?
  12. Great capture! Hope to get pictures like yours someday.
