  1. Has anyone modified and used a car CCD reversing camera for use in a scope?
  2. Hello! I have been looking through the forums sections of this site and found that nichrome wire is a very popular material for dew heaters. I was using my DSLR a several weeks back, and the dew was horrible and it encouraged me to build a nichrome heater. My first heater prototype consisted of 22" of wire with a resistance of 4.08 ohm per foot connected directly into a 12V power supply (consisting of 8 AA batteries in parallel). It was wrapped in duck tape. It worked for a while, but then the batteries began to overheat and I had to pull the heater out to let them cool. When I used the same prototype heater on 6V (4 AA batteries) it didn't have this same overheating issue, but it produced less heat then when it was on 12V. I'm not using a pulse width modulator, but would that solve this issue? I'm worried as the heater is only really around 8 ohm, it may be short circuiting with such little resistance. The wire can't be terribly long as this is just to heat a DSLR lens. Any input on a solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  3. Before I go and Purchase some new USB Leads does anybody have any recommendations where to buy Reliable and quality USB leads. As i had 2 USB cables go faulty on me last night for both cameras which wasted a rare and lovely clear night's imaging session. And i do not want to have keep redoing the wire harness so stressing the other leads e.c.t.
  4. 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.

  5. 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
  6. Recently i bought this brand new camera from David Hardie when he was doing a big sell out of some really nice items in excellent offers !!! Unfortunately the camera although brand new doesn't serve my purposes so I decided to sell it at exactly the same price which I bought it from David , it was a really special offer The camera new costs £1685 and I will sell it for £750 to be fair.... Camera comes with all its extras and case in absolutely brand new condition....!!!!

  7. Hi, I bought my first telescope, SW 150pds about 6 months ago with the purpose of astroimaging "when i feel ready". So far ive used my Nikon D810 for that, and I'm now planning on taking the step buying my first AP camera. My targets would be DSO's, and not planetary. I want a mono-camera, not color. I want to get away with a very good camera to a reasonable price (wouldn't we all...) and in this regard I've been drooling on the ZWO ASI 1600MM Mono for some time. The price for it is in the upper part of my budget, but I'm willing to if its worth it. I've seen from other treads that sensor-size isn't everything, and dynamic range and gain and all is just as important, but i have trouble understanding it all 100% when it's all new to me, but in my experience i am a practical person who learns things much better and faster with the gear in my hand. So without getting to technical, and staying as objective as possible - please help me with; 1. Is this a good camera to go for? 2. It's sold with options of filters 1.25", 31mm or 36mm - Why these options, and what determines what i would choose? 3. Would you go for another camera in this price range, and why? - Or to rephrase it a bit; If you were in my shoes, which camera would you og for? I'd appreciate any help:) I might add, that i understand that with my lack of experience, buying a mono-camera with filters and all might seem premature, but for some strange reason. I enjoy these "way over my head"-projects and figuring out things as time goes - I just need some guiding in the right direction.
  8. Hiya, have absolutely no idea where to begin finding a camera for Astrophotography. And by that I mean - I know I want a canon but am unsure which to buy. It will be a second hand one. Does it need to be full frame ? Can any and all models be modified ? Is a higher pixel count the way to go ? What are the important things to look for in a DSLR ? any help would be great. Thanks Neil
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.

  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Can Nebulosity and Ph.D operate simultaneously and share a single camera. Running Win 10.
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
