Unexpectedly i ran into a guy selling a Neximage 5 imager for just $70 canadian so i figured it would be a decent beginners camera and since i'm an imaging noobie i just grabbed it.
I am aware it will not be for solar but i figured why not start with small steps in imaging before i buy my good camera, $70 is not a pile to waste should i only use it on limited objects then never touch it again lol.
Does anyone out there have any tips and tricks that would be useful in my attempts for first time imaging??.
Hello everyone !
Im interested in stargazing , but i dont have any expirience. My question is : is celestron powerseeker 70az good enough to see jupiter and saturn rings clearly ?
Hi All. Need your help on my first try at M51. After stacking around 1 hour+ of 2 mins exposures this is what I got. I wasn't able to use darks and flats because I had a problem with the darks that I took during that night. I'm getting a slight red tone on the background when I enhance with levels and curves in Photoshop. I took the image in a fairly dark site but I used a UHC filter to see if it has any help on the image. My equipment is a Celestron C6N reflector, Nikon D90, and a Baader UHC filter.
Celestron Sky Q module. Purchased new back in 2015 to use with a CGEM (which is also up for sale). The device creates a WiFi signal which you can connect to with an iOS or Android device so that you can control the mount with Apps such as Sky Safari (that is what we used). Alternatively you can use Celestron’s free Sky Portal App.
£70 including delivery.
The item is also up for sale on UK ABS
This was bought new back in 2014. It was used for a short time in our observatory before we decided to get a Mesu 200 in late 2015. Following that, it received little use – we would occasionally get it out for visual work. Further purchases have meant that the CGEM is now not being used at all, and it is time to shift it on.
The CGEM is, in most respects, equivalent to an EQ6, although you should be aware that it cannot be used with EQMOD. It comes with the original tripod and a 17 lb counterweight (as shown in the photo). It comes with the 12V cigar plug power cable.
• Payload Capacity: 40 lb (18.14 kg) – visual
• Computer Hand Control: Double line, 16 character Liquid Crystal Display
• 40,000 object database with over 100 user-definable objects and expanded information on over 200 objects
I kept the original foam for storing the mount, but the original box has gone. The total weight of the package is not far short of 80 lbs. I don’t know how much it would cost to ship (or quite how I would ship it), so I think collection would be required. I don’t mind driving a reasonable distance to deliver or exchange (maybe we could meet half way).
Note that I am also separately selling a Sky Q Link which works with this mount and enables you to control it using an IOS or Android device.
The mount is also for sale on UK ABS
