  1. Hi guys, firstly - sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. I've just ordered a Canon 600D to start doing some astrophotography and it arrives tomorrow - I'm stoked. I've been wanting to get into astrophotography for a while now and I'm so happy to finally be pulling the trigger. The last item on my shopping list is a solid beginner telescope which would couple well with my Canon 600D. The research I've done is all pointing towards a newtonian reflector. My primary goal here is to take some pictures of stars and planets with the Canon 600D attached to the telescope. I've been looking at the Sky-Watcher 114/900 as it's relatively cheap, which I think is great for someone just starting off - but was wondering what your opinions were seeing as you've all been through this before. Do you have any other recommendations? I'd like to keep my budget up to £300, and that's stretching it really. Thanks for taking the time to help!
  2. This evening/morning I am having some problems getting my unmodified canon 600d to live view via apt. One hell of a palaver trying to get focused. Has any one suffered similar problems? Was working fine yesterday, tonight a bit of a disaster all round. I am running the feed for the guide camera down the same USB cable via a non powered hub, the camera works fine during the data gathering phase but no dam preview. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. K
  3. Hi All, I am new to this forum. I need suggestion on astro photography, since I will visit dark site soon. I have Canon 600d and Canon 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 wide angle lens. For capturing milky way or sky, I would keep my dslr in manual mode - bulb mode, timer as 30 secs or less to make sure there are no star trails, f5 is minimum at 10mm and ISO between 400 - 1600? What settings should I keep? Also, how many similar images, including subs and flats should I take to get a good image? The attached image is my second attempt to capture summer milky way.
  4. Third time lucky for me, freezing cold and cloudy Monday and Tuesday but this evening I literally had a lucky break. Here is a widefield shot to set the scene taken with an 85mm lens on a Canon 600D. Link to video shot with 300mm lens http://flic.kr/p/e35h6b Mel And this is a stacked croppped image of the comet using the frames from the video
  5. This is the first time I've tried to view an ISS daylight lunar transit and to be honest I wasn't expecting to see anything, it came as a big surprise that the ISS was brighter than the moon I thought it was going to be a dim silhouette, maybe it was because the sun was at the same altitude 80 degrees away? Calsky had the mag as -2.5 Well I only just caught it at the bottom of the frame, Sanmatt also captured a widefield video of it and my wife saw it easily in binoculars, has anyone else tried this? Mel Single enhanced frame enlarged
  6. Canon 600D on the Mak 102 with Alt/Az mount. Images aligned in PIPP, 50 Stacked in AS!2, Wavelets in Registax and finished in Photoshop. Moon was low and seeing was quite wavy but it turned out not too bad!
