I gave a Cannon T5, a setting  much have gotten changed. It now takes forever for the camera to save the shot. Any ideas? I could set the shutter speed to 15 seconds and triggertrap to 16 seconds. Now it takes almost 17 seconds to save the picture. The result is 1/2 as many pics. :(

Hello and welcome to SGL. Somewhere in the menus or custom menus will be an option to turn on/off noise reduction. If the function is set to ON the camera will automatically take a second shot, without firing the shutter, which is then subtracted from the first exposure, doubling the capture time. If the function is set to OFF the camera does not take the second shot.

Yes. Exactly this. 'Long exposure noise reduction' is enabled. If you are taking singe exposures, you may as well leave it on if it gives good results. If you are taking multiple exposures and stacking them. Turn it off and take a set of dark frames at the end of your run.

As above it sounds like the NR option is On. It takes a second exposure of the same duration as the "normal" exposure then subtracts one from the other then saves it all. If I recall the NR is done whenever the exposure is greater then 1 second unless disabled.

If you leave it On then your "exposure" is in effect twice as long = Normal+NR, this also carries through to the sensor heating as the full exposure time is now doubled, so if you have a period for cooling then you have to extend this.

      I bought this camera from a respected member of the SGL community in May. Shortly after, I received a 183mm pro and it has not been used since. So I've done about three nights of imaging.
      Below are pictures of what is included. My profile pic was taken using this camera. I am looking for £160 which is what I paid for it, but in that I will cover shipping to a UK address, 42mm and 48mm t rings and a mains or usb battery adaptor for the camera (original battery and charger also included).
      Below is a link to Adamj's original post (with permission from Adam), as it includes lots of useful info on the mod as it's beyond my knowledge tbh. Please do not contact Adam to raise any questions as that would be unfair. Just let me know if you have any and I'll be pleased to answer them.
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Hey,
      I recently started with astrophotography. I used a Canon EOS 80D with a 200mm telephoto lens. Now I got a Bresser 96-18760 - Skylux 70-700 telescope. I have already seen some beautiful nebulae. Now I want to attach my camera to the telescope. On the internet I have already found something of what I could use, but before I buy something I want to be sure that it will work. I have read that you can attach the camera to the telescope via a T2 ring and a special lens. For the T2 ring I found this: https://goo.gl/1GN4Zi. To attach the T2 ring to the telescope I found this: https://goo.gl/wgVBfX the only problem with this part is, that it isn't the correct size. It say's 1,25 inch, but my ocular is 1,6 inch. I can't find the correct part to attach my Canon 80D on my Bresser telescope.

      Anyone out there got a 26mm Nagler or 31mm Nagler they might part with?

      I'm want to get into AP iamging DSOs but have focusing issues - nothing new there I guess.
      My basic question is this:
      Is it possible to use a DSLR and USB link to display live images on a Windows PC (or Android Tablet) with sufficient resolution to use a Bahtinov grating for focusing?
      If so, which DSLR have people used in this way? And which software?
      I have been trying without success to use my Sony A300 DSLR  but the built-in LCD display is far too low resolution to see the fringes from a Bahtinov grating. The grating works great with an eyepiece so nothing wrong with the grating. And the Sony video out is of similar low resolution to the LCD display. And unless I'm missing a trick (please tell me if I am!) there is no way to get live images over the USB link.
      As a very poor second best, is there any single software (for Cannon, Sony, whatever) that will allow triggering of images (Bulb mode) and upload the image almost immediately. I guess I could live with that just so long as I end up with a properly focused system.
      My scope is a 6" f10 CS. And yes, I know f10 is too slow and I need a field expander but it's where I'm at at the moment. And unless I can crack the focusing all other issues are secondary.
      Many Thanks for reading this far!
