Just got a Nikon D3000..

Recommended Posts

I got a Nikon D3000 (10MP), a couple of narrowband filters, and a Telrad for Christmas. Telrads are HUGE! O_O Anyway, I'm obviously looking at getting into astrophotography. I've got a CG-4 mount which I'm about to place a motor drive order for. What other equipment am I going to need? I know about the T ring and adapter. Is that it?

Also, if anyone has this camera, a few pointers on manual adjustment would be swell. :D This camera is also my first camera. An SLR! Lol.

I Have the Nikon D300 and am really chuffed at the quality of my astro images since I upgraded from my D70. You'll have some great fun with that. Any questions, I might be able to offer some pointers. Look on my web site for some of my images.

Have fun.
