So I am fairly new to the hobby, what I mean is I have a Celestron Astromaster 114 right now but its hard to use because of the non computerized equatorial mount as well as the red dot sight is bad. I am mainly interested in looking at DSO’s because they seem very interesting. My question is should i get a refractor or sct for observing dso’s and sometimes planets? I want a computerized one with tracking so I don’t have to take a long time finding nebulae and galaxies. Also, is there a certain type of filter to see color on nebula when not using eaa and just viewing with your eyes? I am looking to spend between $600-900
As I am ready to invest in this new CMOS camera from ZWO the Asi2600mc pro , I am trying to understand why this camera will be better than a DSLR with a filter Infront....
How this camera will give me better images ?
I have used DSLR camera some years ago , when I was starting this hobby but after that I have been through mono ccd's , since the time I realized that unfortunately due to lack of time I can not continue with mono imaging and filters....
So I am thinking to give it a try with a brand new, let's say technology of Color CMOS and see what I can get out of it....
I see some really nice examples on the net but am I going to achieve them ?
The Zwo Asi294mc pro widely used around the world is also very promising...Discontinued already as I hear...Amp glow issues....is it really so annoying ?cheaper than the new asi2600 MC pro by half price....
So can someone persuade me that the Zwo Asi2600mc pro is better than the others ? 🤔
I'm new to astronomy and have recently brought a low budget telescope (about £60). I've been out a few time to view Mars and the moon.
Obviously I can view the moon clearly and with great detail but when I go to view Mars all I can see is a bright circle.
I'm not sure if I'm being daft or what, but I can't find anywhere online that has an answer to this.
Details about my telescope are:
It's a reflector telescope
Focal length: 700mm
Can I please ask, is there anyone out there with the following or a similar setup to this:
William Optics Z61 Scope + WO 61A Flattener + ZWO ASI533MC Pro (or other ZWO Camera) ?
Currently, I have been using the following setup:
William Optics Z61 Scope + WO 61A Flattener + Nikon DSLR
However, by the end of the week I am hoping to have this new setup:
William Optics Z61 Scope + WO 61A Flattener + ZWO ASI533MC Pro
I was really just wondering how the more experienced out there had configured/connected their equipment together?
How people connect their ZWO cameras to the flatteners?
Are the flatteners still required with the smaller sensor cameras ?
I was just wondering if anyone has any pictures of similar setups to above please (equipment trains)?
Thanks in advance for any comments or advice.
