LeoG Posted February 12, 2016 Share Posted February 12, 2016 Hello everyone. First post and I could do with some words of wisdom. I've been into astronomy for a few years but I've only ever done visual stuff with my NexStar 130. After all this time I really fancy a crack at AP and plan on buying all new stuff soon but have a few questions about gear before I buy. I'm trying to do everything properly (to avoid ending up with all the gear and no idea) so I've read Making Every Photon Count and have made a shopping list which I'd appreciate some advice on. I have a MacBook Pro and ideally want to keep everything Mac based if possible. With that in mind I thought I'd get:- - EQ6 Pro - Sky Watcher 80ED APO - Sky Watcher ST80 (for guiding) - ZWO ASI 120 (for guiding) I thought I'd start out using my Canon DSLR and progress onto a CCD when I have some practical experience and know what I'm doing. I wondered if I use PHD2 if anyone could envisage any problems I may encounter or indeed recommend a better complete set-up in the £2k region?
