Dipping Toe into the imaging water


Recommended Posts

As it says, i'm considering a toe dip. Two cameras have immediately poked their over the parapet, the Philips Toucam and the Celestron Neximage, based on apparent ease of use and cost. I'll be using a 6" Newt with GoTo mount, and looking initially and planetary and lunar imaging to learn the trade. Are either of these 2 options worth considering? :o

I would say, bite the bullet and tip the toe into a QHY5

Good for imaging lunar and planets, plus you can use it for guiding if u become serious.

Down side, £150 or less notes..

think long time, plus you can always resell the QHY5, everyone wants one.
