  1. Just thought i'll bring this up as a point of discussion. Today, cooled CMOS Astro Cameras are available in plenty. QHY, ZWO and other variants of the same camera are selling for very reasonable prices. However, there was a point of time when astrophotographers used to cool down their DSLR's as a cheap OSC alternative to CCD cameras. Give a choice, I would've purchased a dedicated CMOS OSC which can cool to 40 C below ambient, but since I had a Canon 500D which I had self modded, I requested a friend Kaustav Chatterjee (an avid model railroader) to cold mod my 500D (he had cold modded his 1000D long back). This newly modded camera has a TEC12703 single peltier and cools to approximately 20 below ambient.What do you guys think?
  2. I’m looking to do Milky Way Astrophotography, and I’m hesitating on whether I purchase the Full Frame camera that is the 5D Mark II or the APS-C EOS 600D. I plan on using the Rokinon/Samyang 14mm F/2.8 wide angle lens, although I’m open to suggestions so long as said suggested lens is under 500$. The mount I use will be the iOptron SkyGuider Pro with the counter weight supplies in the set. If there is an alternative to the cameras listed above that goes for less then 400$, I’m willing to hear it. Thanks a bundle, Leon
  3. Last week on august 5th we were treated to a coronal hole followed by some G1 auroral activity here in New Zealand. Unfortunately I live a bit too far north to capture the spectacular Auroral images. However, ever the optimist, I set my canon 6d with a Samyang 14mm lens up in my backyard and captured 300 or so shots (20 seconds at iso 3000) which I then sent through to lightroon timelapse. I'm quite pleased with the result. Definitely some colour there.
  4. Ladies and gentleman, Thank you for helping me in advance. As a kid I've always been fascinated with the sky and what was in it. The nights sky is filled with beautiful stars and nebulae and I want to see them for myself and be amazed how insignificant we really are compared to this vast open space. So let me adress some of the key points that I want for a first scope. 1. Around €1000 2. Big aperture, I want to see as much as possible and as far as possible while not losing a clear image 3. I would like to have a push to or go to system 4. Beginner friendly 5. Size is not a problem 8. I prefer reflectors since it seems they give more aperture for the money but if you know a better scope that sees more with less aperture let me know 9. I have a Canon 550D and maybe I could use this for a bit of astrophotography. This is last on the list tho and can be scrapped if the first 3 points aren't met Of course build quality is very important when making my choice so keep that in mind as well. I'm looking forward to you guys advice. Happy stargazing and clear skies!
  5. Canon 450D Modified for astrophotography, the IR cut filter has been removed for better response on red emission nebula in deep sky objects. Comes with battery, and charger. Shutter count is (atm) 5914, see picture 4. The camera is in great condition, throughout. No lens, just body. Will post special delivery. message me if you have any questions. Price is £150.
  6. Low shutter count. Have used this camera only twice. Once for andromeda and then for lunar eclipse. Will supply with 2 or prob 3 batteries, whatever i have and charger £200 pp extra
  7. Hi everyone, just looking to get into astrophotography but looking at a DSLR as I'd like to use it for daytime use too, I know usually it's better for them to be modified but I've seen this can be done to allow use for both with only white balance adjustment. I've seen 1300d's going around £200 on eBay with the 18-55mm lens but the 4000d is a couple of years newer and there is currently one with 18-55mm + 75-300mm going for £350 at Currys. From what I can work out there isn't much difference between them besides a smaller screen on the 4000d and the release date. I'm just wondering if there is some reason people go for the 1300d instead or is it just because of it being older it turns up cheaper? Sorry for the long winded post but I'm doing lots of research to make sure I get the best one that'll last me the longest, thanks for any help.
  8. My first ever M31 ! For us in NZ this object is a real challenge as it never rises more than a few degrees above the horizon. This is actually as high as it gets and I have included a wide field shot to demonstrate its position at the moment. Coupled with fairly ordinary seeing I’m really rather proud of my first attempt. It really tested my polar alignment and my excellent star adventurer Mount. There is a nasty gradient and it’s a bit brown but apart from that I can see dust lane ! I’m still saving for pixinsight as I suspect there maybe more info in this image. All comment and criticism is welcomed. Cheers, Andy Canon 6d 75-300mm @ 300mm Iso 4000 32X120 seconds ( 1 hour 4 minutes total integration) 15 darks 20flats 20 bias Processed in photoshop and Lightroom

  10. Hello, I want to get into astrophotography. I have a Newtonian (200/1000) and I'd like to buy a DSLR. My preferred maker is Canon, but you can change my mind if you recommend something else and I like it . My budget is around $700 or less and most importantly used cameras not an option because in my country there isn't any good places to buy used DSLRs. I'd like to do prime focus photos and some Milky Way photos. I found out that the 1000d would be a good option but it's not in the stores any more. Then I thought about the 750d but it has vertical lines in the photos. Now I'm thinking about the 2000d but I didn't found any astrophoto experiences with it on the internet. So what's your recommendations?
  11. Hi all, new to astronomy. Have bought a Williams 81, canon D450 had it modified. Celestron advance gt mount. I want to use Eos backyard, (apparently it can only use 32 bit as there are no (canon)drivers for 64bit I need to buy a computer to run the above programmes 32/ 64 bit ?haven't a clue what requirements I need.or if a new computer will run it. I also need to buy a Photoshop programme. Think it needs 64 bit to run it Need all to be compatible any help would be appreciated.
  12. Tried capturing M42 and horsehead nebula last night with my new Astro-modified EOS Rebel XT. During post processing I noticed these weird spots and lines across the image. Would you happen to know if this was because of the mirrors of the telescope (i.e. dirty mirrors) or is something wrong with the camera? What's weird is that this 2 images were taken with the same exact camera at the same exact position but some artifacts visible on M42 did not show up on the horsehead nebula. Btw I checked the mirrors of the telescope but I cant find the weird long spots
  13. I would like to run my Canon SL1 off of a Celestron powertank. I have the AC adapter for the Canon, which uses the DR-E15 "fake" battery. I have also purchased this DC-DC adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KGKFA4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Now all I need is a way to connect the fake battery to the DC-DC adapter, preferably without having cut/solder anything. After much searching, I am fairly confident that the fake battery takes a 3mm x 1.1mm right-angle connector, but so far, I've been unable to find one. Does anyone know where I could find this connector, or is there another avenue I should pursue?
  14. Hey guys! I'm looking to get into astrophotography and have been researching different camera models lately to get started. My eyes landed on the Canon 1300D DSLR to start with (or Canon 600D) , but I'm wondering if there are any better cameras between the price range of $300 - $800 (second hand is fine too) that you guys know of? Any good budget lenses would be appreciated too. I'm not using a telescope at the moment. Right now I'm leaning towards the 600D that got advised here
  15. Having recently replaced my astrophotography camera, I now have the old one up for sale on an astro site. However, doesn't hurt advertising it here Here is an astro modified Canon Rebel xsi which is the Canon 450D equivalent. It is "good" condition and fully working order but does have some light scratches to the rear screen. I have tried to photograph these but they do not show up when the camera is switched on Shutter count is 3860 which is extremely low. Also included are the following : Astronomik CLS clip filter which really is fantastic and makes a huge difference. It also adds additional dust protection. Battery system / dc coupler - connects to a figure of 8 lead (IEC C7 Power Lead) - I might have one spare if deemed absolutely necessary. This device provides permanent power to the camera for those long nights - brilliant ! 3 batteries and multi-voltage charger (mains / 12volt / 24volt) I do not have the original box but it can be posted to UK address. I would prefer collection (near Filey, North Yorkshire) but willing to post if you cover Paypal fees. I might have a couple more batteries in other camera bags !! Reason for sale is purchase of an astro modified Sony A7S with canon lens adaptor. Including a few photos taken with this camera. Two of these images were placed 1st and 3rd in two separate Astrofest competitions in Yorkshire (York and Hull). £120
  16. Hi, I've been meaning to get out and try to get some Milky Way shots with my 18-55mm kit lens but I've been struggling to find any sites nearby that are actually dark enough to produce anything meaningful. I live in the Medway area and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction as light pollution here is awful. Thanks, Billy
  17. For sale 450D camera modified for astronomy, the IR filter has been removed to allow the important red emission nebula to come through. This camera has a low shutter count of 3977, in very good condition, comes with 1 battery/charger, USB connecting lead to computer and manual, I don't have the original box, but will pack, very well. The price is £165 and includes special delivery. This is for the camera body, no lens. Any questions please email me any questions........
  18. This is my first image with a Canon 500D, modified for astro. Seems to be a big improvement on my unmodded NikonD5300. I guess its not the best subject for increased sensitivity though. I think some of the tidal structures are showing? And this shows what else is present....
  19. After the perma-rain for Plymouth finally breaking last night, I got 1st light using my newly acquired 'defective' Canon 75-300 lens mounted to my CCD via a Geoptik adapter. Below images are made up of 16 x 300s subs ran through PI and very messily processed. Have done 2. The 1st I used TGV on, which I have never used and know nothing about, which may be evident in the image. The second has had 1 pass of noise reduction on it. Both stretched and curved. Option 1 - Option 2 - Have not used flats on these as my flat box was playing me up last night and as it was 0100 when clouds came in, I could not be bothered to mess around and just wanted to pack up and get some sleep before work. On the whole I am pleased with what I have achieved. Is probably only the third or fourth time I have used my CCD in anger and got a decent result out. Next step is to try again and this time get some flats to help improve things...and learn a bit more about processing NB images in PI too Thanks for looking
  20. 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.
  21. Hello, This is my first astrophotography with my own scope (and first light for this scope). I've always been fascinated with this galaxy, and it was my childhood dream to capture it. It finally happened ;-) You'll find all the technical details on the description on flickr. Overall it's the first light of my skywatcher Quattro 250mm/1000mm f4, NEQ6, with an unmodded Canon 6D. Integration time: 1h59 Processed with PixInsight. link to flickr for the full resolution and description:
  22. Hi I have been thinking about having a go at widefield stuff for a while and wondered if anyone could recommend a used decent camera lens to look out for on ebay etc. I would be using my QHY163C with it I currently have an Altair 102 triplet and a megrez 72 (sold my 8"RC last year ...still keeping an eye ot for a C9.25 to replace it for planetary/luna etc) on a Mesu 200 mount It would be used for wider stuff than I can get with the Megrez 72 ...say...the Heart and Sould Nebs in the same FOV. Just thought it would be something to try if I can pick up an old camera lens for a resonable price ....is a zoom worth considering? ...camera resolution is quite high at 3.4 size pixels so is a fixed fl better then crop after etc. Never done any AP with a camera lens so am total virgin with them....any thoughts/recommedations to put on the shortlist gratefully accepted. Tom
  23. Hi, I’ve found this camera on EBay £25 with original box ect. I was going to use it for daytime photography but wanted to know how good this is for wide field Astrophotography. I’m not expecting really good images from it but wanted to know what your thoughts are on this. Many Thanks
  24. Hi everyone. I'm back, and trying again to get a decent DSO photo! This is my personal favourite so far, so I must be getting better! haha Still a long way to go with the processing skills, but I'm sure I'll get there. 23x Lights - 120 Seconds - ISO800 20x Darks 20x Flats (Yes! I've started to use these!!) 20x Bias Processed using Photoshop and ProDigital Astronomy Tools Hope you like it. Thanks, Mike
  25. Hi guys, I'm looking to get a Baader mod to my Canon 6D as I would love to get some nice wide-field landscape images of Orion and the Milky Way etc. Any recommendations for an active service in the UK or nearby? Loads of websites about but not getting much in the way of responses. Thanks in advance.
