Were can I mod my dslr 450d


Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

I'm wondering where I could have my 450d modded. Or is it easy to do it yrself? 

I've watched a few videos online but I'm not so sure I should be doing it myself (to heavy handed)

Is it actually needed to mod the camera .?

I've seen one person doing it and he wants over £200 which I wont pay as the camera only cost me £90 SH. 

Many thanks 

Steve

I'm pleased I did the camera works perfectly and I'm getting much better results.

I must admit he was quite slow to respond to my enquiries but then I wasn't desperate to get mine done.

Hi

Remember that by the time you get it modified, there won't be any astro darkness, so best to get the hang of it now; many of the targets ATM don't benefit from modifying the camera anyway. 

Cheers

Orion probably November and Andromeda a little earlier in the year (Aug/Sept). It's too low in the sky for me at the moment (May) when dark and so the longer days have put the kibosh on Andromeda.

Have a look for Bode's Galaxy instead. That is circumpolar and you can see it quite clearly.

Hi 

Yes he said that I will retain focus to I and also has the option to have a baadar filter fitted I'm assuming thsts to retain daytime photography. I've just had the filter removal was quite cheap compared to other sites I've looked on. Also bought a LP FILTER aswel to hopefully cut some of the street lighting out.

Brill thankyou, as soon as I get my camera back I'll have a look. Hopefully get it back by friday..

Will I be able to see it with my s9?  I've heard of some fair to good results coming from a mobile phone and 30 x20 sec exps.?

My god I love this hobby.theres nothing that comes close imo

Oh +1 on Astromiser by the way. I had my 400D done by him and it works really well. Just have the IR cut filter removed not the whole lot as you might not be able to focus at all if you do the full spectrum mod.

Dunno. Possibly. I have an Iphone 11 and only use it for occasional low light night time shots, which it excels at, but not held it up to an eyepiece.

If you have LED street lights near you I really can vouch for the IDAS D2 filter (either clip in or 2"). Expensive yes but works extremely well. Cuts out old style sodium and mercury emission street lights as well. Also tungsten emissions and domestic LED emissions from private houses too.

Astrophotography is not cheap!

Yeah I had my adapter on scope last night with the s9 pushed up to a 25MM SP (standard that came with the scope)
