Hi All, this morning i made my first attempt taking a picture of Jupiter. The hardware i used: Skywatcher Skymax 127 SW AZ GTI mount Sony A6300 T2 adapter (about 40mm long) 1,25" nosepiece on the adaptor. So camera in prime focus with no barlow, filters,... First photo: Camera settings in manual mode : AWB; Shutter 2,5sec; ISO1600 Second photo AWB; 1/3sec ISO100 So, as you can see not that good, a Barlow probably would have been better, but i guess there's more to be done here... Some tips ? Thank you
Hi, this weekend i bought 3 Baader Hyperion EP's (13/17/21) and the 14/28mm fine adjustment rings, when i was in the shop i also told the vendor i was thinking of buying an 2" diagonal since the Hyperions can be used as a 2" EP (21mm becomes 32 @ 2"). So those 3 Hyperions essentially can replace my whole Celestron Plössl case an then some. The vendor said that a 2" diagonal on a 5" Mak wouldn't be a good thing because the fieldstop of the telescope woud be in most cases smaller than the fieldstop of many 2" EP's. Does anyone know what the fieldstop of a SW 5" Mak is and does anyone have some experience using 2" diagonal and EP's on a similar scope ? Thanks
