First attempt at astro imaging


Recommended Posts

Last night was my first attempt at astro imaging. Did two shots of the Moon, posted in the lunar imaging section, and one of Saturn. Any tips/criticisms are welcome!!


SPC900NC with adapter, but no other modifications

Nexstar 8SE


SparpCap for capturing

Regstax 6 for stacking ( or at least attempting to stack...I need to read a tutorial )

Thanks everyone!

@Beamish: I attempted to use a 2X barlow, but the image was far too blurry. It was still early in the evening and just cooling down, so there was a lot of heat rise distortion ( not sure if that is the technical term )going on. Thanks for the link to the tutorial!!
