  1. I bought this camera new 5 years ago and it has been very little used. The sale includes the sx off axis guider. Camera and OAG £600 All in excellent condition. The front of the camera body has some cosmetic scratches from use of the OAG - see photo. Collect from Chesterfield or add £20 for insured special delivery postage Payment by bank transfer I've attached a couple of images taken with the camera along with pics of the camera itself
  2. The Moon was nice and clear over Norfolk this evening (a pleasant change, yes!!) So i got the tripod out and got a few shots off Took with a Canon EOS 60D and a Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM with a 2x Extender Cropped in Paint Shop Pro
  3. so just spent the last three hours in the garden trying to get a single image (didnt go well) couldnt even see the moon the programs i tried 1st ezplanetary and then sharpcap both recommended by camera site . i took the camera out of the barlow and waved a torch in front and could see a glare so pressume it was down to focus was using x2 barlow but couldnt even see the glare of the moon which i thought was odd should you be able to live view?. scope is a skywatcher explorer 130p .any ideas gratfully appreciated
  4. I have a simple question that I've not been able to answer myself about cooling.. Does it actually help if the ambient temperature is already very low? My last two or three times out using my camera the air temperature has been below -1 deg C and as low as -4 from the cameras inbuilt sensor.
  5. I have no idea how this stacks up to other cameras, but I figured I’d post this new camera from Meade for those imagers out there. https://www.meade.com/accessories/cameras/deep-sky-imager-dsi-iv/deep-sky-imager-iv-dsi-iv-color.html
  6. Canon EOS 1300D , Comes with lenses 18-55mm and 75-300mm zoom and strap. Also Remote control shutter/intervalometer for creating self portrait or time lapse etc. Non Smoking Household. perfect condition, kept in case when not in use. £300 REDUCED Location Bolton, North West England. Collection or I can do local delivery in person. I would prefer this as postage would be expensive also the risk of damage in transit. If needed then I estimate around £15 due to size and amount of items if sent by courier.

  10. Hi guys, I have for sale my Atik Infinity Color Camera. It's in mint condition and comes boxed and complete with everything you need. I've used it around 4 times. £830 including Express Shipping and Insurance. If you have any questions, please drop me a message, and I'll be happy to help. Thanks!
  11. I seem to remember mention of using the RPi NoIR camera for astro imaging but rather than try to find an old and maybe out-of-date thread I thought I'd start a new one. So what I'd like to know is whether anyone has experience of this use and whether it was any good. How sensitive is it compared with "proper" astro cameras? I find it hard to believe anything as cheap as this is could be that good but who knows!
  12. One of my favorite planetary nebulae is rising in the northeastern sky (above that big oak tree)! The ghostly M57, the Ring Nebula, approx. 2300 light-years away and between 6,000 and 8,000 years old (when the outer layers of the parent star exploded), shot on the Orion Starshoot Deep Space Camera II (at maximum sensitivity setting in color) through the Orion StarMax 127. Original music: "Apochromatic (dub version)". Enjoy! Reggie
  13. Ok, many of you are probably using the superior BackyardEOS or APT, but maybe the free EOS Camera Movie Record program does have a few users for planetary photography. In any case, I tried it on a Windows Tablet to avoid carrying a laptop and it worked fine, but its buttons were tiny. It is open-source though, so I made the buttons bigger for me and perhaps somebody else might like it that way. If so, you can get it here (I will try to keep it updated as Canon supports newer cameras in their SDK). And when cheap Windows tablets start using something faster than an Atom (and not cost an arm and a leg like Surface et al), perhaps nobody will have to carry a laptop
  14. I've just bought a Daystar Solar Scout 60mm DS for H-alpha imaging of the Sun. I am now looking for a suitable camera to use with it. I know I could use my DSLR, but for H-alpha that is not going to give best results, so am looking for a dedicated monochrome imaging camera. I have identified the ZWO ASI178MM as a possibility that fits my budget and has a large enough (I think) sensor to image the entire Solar disc if I use a 0.5 focal reducer which will give me a total focal length of 465 mm. Does anyone have any experience of this camera in this application, or know if it will be suitable? I know it does not have an IR blocking filter, which I understand is an advantage for H-alpha. The spec is available here: https://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/zwo-asi178mm-usb-30-monochrome-cmos-camera.html Thanks Mandy
  15. Can Nebulosity and Ph.D operate simultaneously and share a single camera. Running Win 10.
  16. Hello. I am using a Orion xt8 reflector telescope. I am wondering what optic / eyepiece set up I should be using for a mix of DSO and planets. I have a couple pictures which I have taken with honestly my cell phone on one of those (Omi cellphone adaptors for telescope) and they pictures don't come out to bad... but I am looking for something that I can actually put into the eye piece that will give decent looking pictures, or even one that I can hook up to my computer and look through it live. Price really is not the biggest issue but not really looking for something over $400. I know there might not be such a thing as I am describing. most of these pictures were taken with a 2x barlow and a 20mm The ones of mars I just took with a 5x barlo and the same 20mm. and I am unsure what this star formation I took a picture of is but It looked pretty cool and I am glad that I was able to take a picture of it.. But just looking for some help choosing what camera would be best. (Obviously using the phone camera the objects appear so bright and there is no way to pull the actual detail of the planet into focus for me) But any help would be great :) Thank you for any feedback you have and I cant wait to become more active on this forum!
  17. Can anyone identify this Orion camera and perhaps provide me with a digital copy (or link) for the user guide? I got this and it has no part number or any unique identifier to help me locate the documentation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Unexpectedly i ran into a guy selling a Neximage 5 imager for just $70 canadian so i figured it would be a decent beginners camera and since i'm an imaging noobie i just grabbed it. I am aware it will not be for solar but i figured why not start with small steps in imaging before i buy my good camera, $70 is not a pile to waste should i only use it on limited objects then never touch it again lol. Does anyone out there have any tips and tricks that would be useful in my attempts for first time imaging??.
  19. Newb here. I have settled on my first telescope being the 4SE or 6SE and I have a Sony Alpha 300 DSLR I would like to be able to connect to play around with AP. I am barely starting to grasp the terminology involved with telescopes in general but it seems connecting a camera to a telescope is a whole different ball game. It seems as though the 4SE has a separate eyepiece and camera attachment? Looks like you can just flip a knob to swap between the viewer and camera? Whereas the 6SE it appears that you have to remove the whole eyepiece to connect the camera. After reading some reviews everyone says they immediately wanted a more powerful telescope so I am thinking the 6SE may be the way to go but I really don't like the idea of having to swap back and forth by removing the eyepiece, is there an after-market accessory that would allow it to work more like the 4SE (flip a switch from viewer to camera and back)? And I guess my other question is are the optics really that much better on the 6SE that it would be worth the hassle when connecting the camera? I see that the light gathering capability and magnification are better but how perceivable is that difference? My goal is to do some moon viewing but it would be great to see some cool deep space objects too. + One final thought, how much does the auto star tracking feature help or hurt the image quality? I mean on a 20 second+ exposure the object is going to move some amount, is the Nexstar tracking system really able to keep the object that precisely still in the optics? Or should I just expect to get blurry spots of light when photographing deep space objects? Thanks
  20. Hi, I've always wondered how magnification is achieved with a camera connected to a telescope, given that whenever I see pictures of a telescope and dslr or dedicated camera setup, there's never an eyepiece to magnify the image. How do you get a closeup image without a short focal length eyepiece? Thanks, Gus
  21. For sale 1000D camera modified for astronomy, the IR filter has been removed to allow the important red emission nebula to come through. This camera has a very low shutter count of 4654 (at this time), and is in very good condition but has a light surface scratch on the LCD (see pic), which doesnt impact its performance and isnt visable when on. comes with a battery and charger, I don't have the original box, but will pack, very well. The price is £130 and includes delivery. This is for the camera body, no lens. Any questions please email me for guaranteed response........clear skys!
  22. My current setup is a 130pds, mounted on a HEQ5 PRO. I have been using it with an unmodified Canon DSLR which is going OK so far, but I do like the look of EAA as an option. Do you think my current rig lends itself to EAA (also considering getting an 80ED), obviously the bits that's missing is the camera. Is there a budget camera <£200, or an older model that I should look for 2nd hand. There are a few doing the rounds on ebay and .astrobuysell.com/uk/ although the 2nd hand cameras appear to be rather old. Cheers Jon
  23. Hi guys, Tonight i am piggy backing my DSLR/Lens combo on top of the frac for the first time, i've just been out and balanced everything. I can see that the biggest problem i am going to have is lack of control over the 2nd DSLR. Usually i use APT via remote desktop to control my DSLR from in my living room. But as far as i know APT doesnt offer dual camera control. I've done a few searches and nothing at all is popping up about a way to do this and i should add that i only have the one imaging laptop so cant use a separate laptop for control. Anybody have any experience with this?
  24. Hi all I've been using the qhy5l-ii as a guide camera and have been impressed by it's sensitivity. So I'm wondering if it might be usable for imaging - I'm thinking of the more distant star clusters and also galaxies. Has anyone tried? I suspect it might be rather noisy for single-frame long exposures. Has anyone tried cooling it? (the spec says it's ok down to -30 C). It does have a maximum exposure time of 10mins which could be limiting but it would be a lot faster than my 1100d and I can only get max 5min exposures with that cos of the local lp. It also has the advantage of being relatively cheap! Any thoughts? Cheers Louise
