Hi All I am new to astronomy. I bought a skywatcher 150P with some different eye pieces as well as a barlow X2 lens and a QHY5 II the info I am struggling to find is how the QHY5 II connects to the telescope. The magnification is achieved using the eye pieces however it seems that the QHY5 II only connects direct to the barlow lens am I missing something here? The QHY5 II has a bare cmos sensor so surely it needs a lens in front of it? I tried to hook it up to the barlow lens only and tried to use the software EXplanetory (came with the camera) Any tips on what I need to do? I plan on making short videos to utilize the stacking software thats out there thanks in advance
So I have bought a QHY ii for guiding as my old guide cam died My setup is a Skywatcher Explorer 250 OTA Skywatcher EQ6 Pro SynScan and for guiding Qhy5 ii and a Skywatcher Startravel 80 so I guess I might as well use PHD2 now as its been around for a while. Are there some recommedned settings I should use in the advanced setup I realise I may need to tweek a touch once its up and running but a guide to get going would be great Regards John B
