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 ? 🤔
Hello everyone, I'm wondering if I could get some help, sort of ripping my hair out a little.
I have the EXOS2 PMC-8 and last night I used Sharpcap to Polar align, I set the mount up as usual and adjusted until Sharpcap said excellent Polar alignment.
So my next step was to do a 3 star alignment I was using a program called Explorer Stars to achieve this, so when I asked the mount to slew to the first star it was way off even in the finder scope, is that normal? So I used the controls to get the star in my FOV and centred it, it was the same for the next two stars way off. so I did the same.
I finished the 3 star alignment and when I asked the mount to find an object the object was not centred it was bottom right of the quick photo I took.
I've made sure all the information is correct by setting my Longitude and Latitude and also made sure my time is correct, the mount is balanced and level and pointing North. I think I'm doing something wrong somewhere.
Also may I ask should my counterweight bar be parallel with the mounts front leg? I have two little arrows on the mount that should be pointing at each other when in the home position but when they are the counterweight bar is pointing to the right quite a fair bit.
I'm new to all this only been doing it for a few months so a lot of things are quite confusing.
Thanks in advance Bill.
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.
Has anyone had any experience installing ASCOM driver onto the EQM 35 pros SynScan hand controller for using with PHD2? I'm watching a tutorial using PHD2 and the chap is using ASCOM for connecting his computer to his guide camera instead of using a cable. So the computer becomes the middle man instead of the mount.
