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
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.
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.

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?
