  1. Hi, I recently bought Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ and I am new to astrophotography. I have Nikon D3100 and I got a T-ring and a T-adapter to get started with it but my dslr doesn't focus at all! It is really heartbreaking Can anyone please help me out with this problem? Maira
  2. After a long time I've been able to capture Jupiter in colour and it looks like I caught the GRS! There were some odd settings in the "filter" of my Philips SPC900 that were causing the loss of detail and colour. It's a small picture and lacking of detail, this certainly doesn't make it a jaw-dropping picture but I'm quite happy with it and wanted to share Location: Cork, Ireland Seeing: Fair Skywatcher Explorer 200P / EQ5 TAL 2X Barlow (need to try the 3X next time!) Philips SPC900 Stacked with Registax 5 70 % of 3000 frames Minor edit with Adobe Lightroom Thanks for watching
  3. Hello, Just wanted to start by saying that I love the website and the service you provide - I've heard nothing but good things from others who pointed me in the direction of these forums. I am looking to purchase a telescope for my son who has maintained a steady interest in astronomy for about a year since receiving his first telescope - a 400X70mm refractor with a couple of different lenses and a 2X Barlow, nothing spectacular. He has made the most of the scope, sighting as far as Jupiter and its moons, even taking some pictures with a modified webcam in place of the eyepiece. We've established that he enjoys this and I am looking to spend about £1000 on a full setup (telescope and accessories) that would allow for him to progress further and also last him a long time, he's very technical, making the most of his laptop to aid in his search of the skies, so software packages and the like aren't necessary. Something that isn't huge would be ideal, (I have seen some massive Dobsonian (?) scopes on YouTube) as we live in an apartment and he operates from our front and rear balconies. Hopefully this is enough information to be useful, I did try and have a look at the options myself and the GoTo scopes look spectacular but the additional accessory options like battery packs, lenses and filters got the better of me. This Sky-Watcher in particular caught my eye and budget-wise it leaves room for accessories: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/sky-watcher-az-gti-wifi/sky-watcher-skymax-127-az-gti.html I apologise for the lengthy post, I am grateful for any and all recommendations. Kind regards, Frank
