After many hours of researching and asking on forums I’ve decided not to go down the imaging road as I’ve come to realise it’s way out of my budget. Now after realising this I’ve narrowed down to three telescopes that I’m considering on getting purely for visual use.. Skywatcher 150p 150pl or the dobsonian 200p. What is the difference between the 150p and the pl? I’m after something that can let me see enough detail on planets that I’ll enjoy and also allows me to get views of deep sky objects. I have been talking to Martin from FLO as well and still can’t decide. I’m hoping you can help me make my decision. I’d also like to know how comefortable these three are as I’ll be most likely doing long sessions for sketching. My budget is £400 max.
Thanks for for the help (again).
this morning i made my first attempt taking a picture of Jupiter.
The hardware i used:
Skywatcher Skymax 127 SW AZ GTI mount Sony A6300 T2 adapter (about 40mm long) 1,25" nosepiece on the adaptor. So camera in prime focus with no barlow, filters,...
Camera settings in manual mode : AWB; Shutter 2,5sec; ISO1600
AWB; 1/3sec ISO100
So, as you can see not that good, a Barlow probably would have been better, but i guess there's more to be done here...
Some tips ?
