Hi this is lozzy's son,
what telescope do you use to get those images, and is it one you connect straight to your laptop or camera ?
OMG, were those just shot through the camera's eye or through a telescope? They are fabulous.

Those were taken with a Skywtcher ed80 pro refractor telescope - it is apochormatic which means it has extra lenses to bend all the light wavelengths together which is important for decent pics - so although its only a small scope you can get decent pictures. It is mounted on a HEQ5 sysnscan pro equatorial mount - the camera is a simple DSLR canon eos 350/rebelxt with the lens off and a conncting t-ring to put it where the eyepiece would go. No laptop was used - but my next project will need one
The nebula picture is 25 x 90second shots and the horsehead is 20 - next time it is clear i will go and take a load more to add to bothstacks to smooth out the images.
waws that too much information?
OMG WOW, Thanks, i'll get mum to have a look for me, next years xmas prezzie...Originally Posted by Skywatcher, post: 77235
