Hi everyone, I am thinking about buying a Celestron Nexstar 6se to use for astrophotography at a very beginner level. I am thinking about using a ZWO ASI224MC as it seems a good option. I have a few questions about how to setup/use it - here they are: 1.) Do you just screw it on where the eyepiece is usually at? 2.) Do you just have the cable going to a computer where you have stacking spect where that stacks the photos it takes? 3.) Does it automatically take photos of planets and DSO’s? 4.) Does it need any filters to get color on nebulae as those are they primary things I want to photograph Thats all, as you can see I am a beginner to astrophotography and just want to know how to use the camera to take decent pictures. Thanks all
have stellarium set up with computer connected to hand held controller. I did a dummy two star alignment and was able to move my celestron nexstar 6 se with ctrl 1 and alt 1. I also am able to select sky items on the computer then click the slew button , then it begins to move but gets tugged back to the original position. I'm thrilled that I got this far but now I need to find out where my disconnect is. any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi all, As mentioned previously I'm the extremely proud new owner of this 'scope, and i cant believe what a difference it has made over my previous 'scope. The bands on Jupiter are crystal, even in my light polluted garden, and with poor seeing. Its amazing! Anyway to my question. I'm looking to get a few bits to make my enjoyment of this scope even better, and was wondering if anyone could help or add to my list: Dew Shield Power Supply. With this i am torn between the standard Celestron/Skywatcher tank, which i think should work out of the box, or spend a bit more on the Tracer Lithium Power pack, which i am unsure about if they have all the leads required. Any advice here would be fantastic. Some lens cleaner (see previous post). I'm also tempted to get the various bits to attach my Cannon DLSR to, just to see what i am capable of. I bought it with the Celestron 1.25'' lens kit, so i have some ok EPs and filters to start with. Anything else i am missing, or should definitely add? Thanks in advance C
