Hi all, I wish to try some classic (film) astrophotography with my beloved Praktica MTL3 Film SLR. I would like to buy some film rolls from Amazon.co.uk but I have no idea what's the right thing to buy. Searching google I did find some names/brands (it seems that Fuji Superia are highly advised - but what ISO?) but I'd like to hear from some more experienced people what are the generic rules for selecting a film roll suitable for Astrophotography. I.E. is it better B/W or Color ? High or Low ISO? Fine / Low Grain? High sensitivity to red? Are Near IR BW rolls like ILFORD SPX of any use? Also, most of the articles that I found are naming film rolls that are not available anymore. Which ones, currently available on Amazon UK, would you advise to buy? What are the recommendations for developing such rolls? Bear in mind that I'm an "intermediate beginner" so I do not have extreme expectations Thanks all & Clear Skies
Hello, All, Impulsive creature that I am, I seem to have decided to get back into astronomy after several years by acquiring a Fullerscope 4-1/2" f11 refractor OTA. It's one of the ones with the brass and the black crinkle finish. Unfortunately, it didn't come with a mount. Other than a Fullerscope mount, if I could find one, what else might anyone suggest for a substantial and appropriate-looking mount? Thanks! Joanna J, Winchester
