  1. Hi guys, It has been a while since I last visited this forum and thought it is a great shame. A while ago, I figured how to properly attach my Prestigio webcam to a telescope using spare part from Hyperion Zoom and got around to get myself some motor drive for my 4.5" newtonian on a EQ2 mount. With somehwat limited tracking capabilities, I was finally able to get down to some wannabe serious imaging, and my first stop was the Moon last night, although the seeing was terrible. I just wanted to share my results with you, recieve some feedback and tips from you in the community. Setup and imaging details: 114/900 on EQ2, basic motor drive (focusing was a nightmare) Prestigio PWC2, most basic 2x Barlow Registax, ACDSee 6 Pro Range of resolutions/fps/exposures So, what do you think?
  2. Does anyone know if a comparison has been undertaken to compare the final stacked results of the two imaging methods: - a short run of video using a DSLR at prime focus (say 30-60 seconds), vs - a number of stills taken of the Moon using the same DSLR at prime focus Is there a significant benefit in detail from say 20 uncompressed raw single exposures compared to the compressed video at 24 fps (500-1500 frames) capturing the few moments of good seeing? James
  3. I made a lot of eclipse shots that turned out too dark because my Samsung phone camera is not sensitive enough (400 ISO), but treating these shots as deep sky images, stacking them and doing the processing magic, is it possible to make a few presentable views? If someone is willing to try - no need to lose sleep over it - I'm posting the images by groups. Each group contains pics made seconds or tens of seconds from each other, not sure if the slight differences will make processing too hard. They were made with a Celestron 5 and an Explore 24/68 eyepiece. Focus seems to be accurate. First group Second group Third group Fourth group Fifth group Sixth group Seventh group Last group
  4. Had a second clear night last night which is unusual in Shanghai. I did a small mod the Samyang lens so that I had a bit more focus control. Not elegant but it did make it easier. Once I had a more sturdy tripod the focusing will become easier. Samyang 800mm on Lumix GF2 micro 4/3rds ISO800 1/320th.
