Herzy Posted February 17, 2016 Share Posted February 17, 2016 My setup: Nexstar 90slt Computerized Nikon D320 Alright I understand that Alt/az mounts aren't good for astrophotography, but it's what I can afford so it'll have to do. I've been taking astrophotos for the past few months and the results are dissapointing. Although you can't see the streak of the Milky Way, our light pollution isn't too bad and the nights are always clear, so this isn't the issue. Unfortunately stacking softwares aren't an option either so I'm forced to do single exposure astrophotography with an unreliable mount! I have tried imaging the Pleiades for about 40s exposures and I can't see any of the nebula, but I see pictures of single exposure pictures of it that are also 40s that you can see stunning detail. (I made sure we had exactly the same settings) I just want to be able to get some good deep sky images of things like the Andromeda Galaxy, double cluster, Whirlpool Galaxy, Pleiades, Orion Nebula, etc. How should I go about getting decent results that would impress my friends/family with this setup (without purchasing anything expensive)!
