Aaron F Johnson Posted July 4, 2016 Share Posted July 4, 2016 I have been terrascoping and digiscoping in an unconventional sence using cheap smartphones with good results for terrestrial, moon and Sun but would also like to include planets. I have a really nice laptop with all the software and stacking programs already loaded including stellarium and azcom control for my etx90at and am just wondering what ccd or cmos would work best. I am not looking to create fantastic images I would need more aperture and better mounts but to just do neat vids and photos to share with the family. I also use a 114mm omni for deepsky and the asi120mc and mm have caught my eye but I am more wondering if there are other cameras out there I am overlooking. I am aware of sky rotation, planetary rotation and other limits including aperture and mount. I have also modded a few webcams with ok results but know if I spend a few hundred things could be better. All of my celestial viewing is done under dark sky's with 0 light pollution and this allows for the use of small apertures in a very big way. Most of my time is spent observing and when seeing is best the last thing I do is let go the eyepiece but that dosent bring home anything to share with those I leave behind...I have about 300us in the kitty...
