I am a returning member to this site and would like some help with a new scope.
I was outside the other night under a cold, crisp, clear night and was having a go at imaging, with not much success.
I don't have a lot of money to spend, but I would like a simple tracking system so that I can practice my imaging without the dreaded star trails! I was looking at the Skywatcher Heritage scopes, in either the 90p or 114p Virtuoso; are these any good for imaging, what is the tracking like?
yesterday evening, I could do yet another lunar sketch with my tiny 3" Mini Dobsonian. Round about one and a half day before the full moon, there were still some craters at the western limb favourably lit showing fine shadows.
Telescope: Skywatcher Heritage 76/300
Eyepiece: Skywatcher Planetary 5mm
Date&Time: October 25th, 2120-2205 CET
Place: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
Technique: chalk and charcoal pencils on black sketching cardboard
Size: 3" Diameter
Hope you like it!
