Here are my attempts at Astrophotography with a smartphone. Taken thought a 10 and 20inch Dobsonians. Most of the photos have been processed through photoshop. The eclipse photos where taken with a smartphone with a small screw on Samsung lens and a home made white light filter.
I have more on my Instagram
Messier 13 (Hercules Cluster)
Hi all, new to astronomy.
Have bought a Williams 81, canon D450 had it modified. Celestron advance gt mount.
I want to use Eos backyard, (apparently it can only use 32 bit as there are no (canon)drivers for 64bit
I need to buy a computer to run the above programmes 32/ 64 bit ?haven't a clue what requirements I need.or if a new computer will run it.
I also need to buy a Photoshop programme. Think it needs 64 bit to run it
Need all to be compatible any help would be appreciated.
I have an entertaining video to share with you which is perfect for those just starting out and wanting to taste a bit of astrophotography without spending a lot of money. I image from London and managed to get a pretty good shot of Orion for just £150. This video runs through where I bought the equipment, why I bought it and how I used it to capture a Orion and some of the trials and tribulations I had to deal with on the way. Any questions please ask! Enjoy!
FYI I shot this last year but with Orion now beginning to rise over the rooftops of London I thought this would be a good time to share it.
I have 7x 36mm Baader filters in my QHY Filter wheel. I use a simple Orion 80ED with a manual focuser. I have two questions basically.
a) How important is refocusing between the LRGB Ha OIII and SII filters?
b) If important, then how do I manually calculate the offset distance between them assuming the filters aren't parfocal?
Hi Guys, any one had any use of a Technosky Apo or know anything about them.
I am looking at getting my first apo as usually I am Astrograph man and seen this 70/478 mm quadruplet flatfield for £482. It seems a good deal but was just wondering about the build quality? As this seems cheap for a quadruplet!!! https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/tecnosky-telescope-ap-70-478-quadruplet-flatfield-ota/p,57327#tab_bar_1_select
