  1. Hi all, Sorry if this has already been covered but I have just got a beginner scope with a standard eyepiece fitting. I would like to capture some basic images of the moon , jupiter, saturn and any other good easy objects that you can recommend. Perhaps a galaxy or cluster. Anyway I am stuck as where to start and would appreciate any help and advice regarding the easiest method to get good basic results. I have heard you can use digital cameras, DLSR cameras and even webcams but where do I start? How do I even attach a camera to my scope and how would I do this without losing the magnifaction, if the camera is in place of the eye piece? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Richard
  2. Hi Guys, I wondered if it's possible to attach a mirrorless camera (that is a camera that is not able to remove it's lens) to a telescope. Is there an attachment or a camera holder? Luminous Thank you, in advance
  3. I would like to ask about solar imaging cameras, I am about to pull the trigger on one soon, I see them pop up on Astro Buy/Sell here and there but will buy new if I have to. I would like to know about interface, many recommend USB 3.0, but it so happens that every time I see one pop up like the ZWO ASI120MM it is 2.0, the one with the “S” designation is 3.0. I understand 3.0 will be faster but is 2.0 a deal breaker? 3.0 is fairly recent, many of you have used 2.0 cams for years. Is there enough justification to give up one at a good deal in favor of a new ZWO ASI120MM-S? thanks all!
  4. Hi I have the ZWO ASI120MC-S and I just can not seem to be able to calibrate it, tried everything I can think of, can not find much online. Any suggestions really appreciated as I'm randomly punching numbers hoping for results, I have a rough idea what the variables are going into but no luck. This is the best I can do sat here in bed with the bed light on.
  5. I was at a star party and the instructor used a green laser. Pretty awesome. I want one. What power or what do I look for so I get the right one. I live in canada Also he used a cAmera with delayed exposure we could see more nebulas and such with the camera than with the human eyeball. Any ideas on a basic setup do I can do this too? Do I need A special camera aNd is it Attached to its own telescope? What power of telescope do I need thanks to u all
  6. Have you ever thought about where all photons go when they enter your telescope? I have done a rough calculation of how they dissapear on the way through the telescope and in to the sensor, in this case it's for a rgb filtered mono camera. The result? You detect about 12% of the incoming photons through a refractor or 9% through a reflector! I have the calculation on my homepage here: http://astrofriend.eu/astronomy/tutorials/tutorial-transmission/tutorial-transmission.html For those who are curious as I'm ! /Lars
  7. Got a photo of the Moon with corona a couple of nights ago, not through the telescope but through a camera, hope that's allowed ? Cheers, Gary.
