Planetary Imaging with Nexstar 8SE

Recommended Posts

Hello - I have been doing some planetary imaging using a CCD and my current scope. Grabbing 3 min avis and then stacking in registax.

I was considering buying the Celestron Nexstar 8SE scope but have read about issues with imaging and long exposures from rotational effects due to the alt/Az mount.

The question I have is would these issues impact on the type of planetary imaging I am doing or does it just impact long exposure DSO imaging?

Thanks,

Sam

Probably not. The image rotation can make mosaicing of lunar images a nightmare though.
