Hello :-)

Hello all ,

i am new here and space is so nice to ! Years ago I bought a little telescope but I did not do much with it ๐Ÿ˜žย 

i like photographing and bought a skytracker (MSM) so I hope to make Some nice pictures. But when I see pictures made with the telephone than I think .....ย 

So I also wonder how expensive a startersset is for this way of photography ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Regards ,

Henkย

Astrophotography can be VERY expensive and complex, but there are simple ways of getting simple photos that are much cheaper.

Can you post up and photo of your Skytracker and camera so we can advise further.

Hi Carole , thanks for the answer ๐Ÿ‘ that is the tracker I bought and received last week ย ๐Ÿ™‚ย cloudy as it is there was no chance to practice ! The weight is the limit with the tracker because I wanted to takeย pictures with the Nikon d500 with the sigma150-600 but thats a way to heavy as they say ! So with the 80-200 it must me possible so on the cropcamera I have 300 mm and even another 1,4 Crop for 375 mm .ย

Assuming my link to your kit is correct, it should work well for DSLR cameras.ย  Not sure how long an exposure you could do before star trails become apparent, you would need to do trial and error on that.
