Hello from Scotland

Hi Ron and a warm welcome to SGL from a fellow Photographer turned Astro Photographer.

Yes, it is a very steep learning curve, but worth the effort for the results you can get. Being able to turn a grey smudge, which is what you see, enhance the detail and turn it into a permanent image gives you a fantastic sense of achievement. 

Happy Stargazing and enjoy your Astro journey.

Thank you all for the kind and helpful tips. I will listen to all that is said.

My equipment at the moment

Celestron 130 eq

Neximage 5 ccd camera

Canon 60D dslr

A few filters , moon, red, blue

2x barlow

As well as all the fittings to fix the cameras to the scope.

Had the scope since December but weather and other distractions have meant that it has only been out 3 time.
