    Default Info for new snapper



    Hi all,

    I have been using my skywatcher 113 to view the planets, stars etc for a while and have taken a few not good images of the moon etc with my Sony Alpha A200 dslr.

    I really want to get into more nebulae photography and wondered other than changing the mount to an EQ - 5? what else do I need to do?

    Also where can I get decent second hand mounts either EQ - 5 or better.

    Thanks

    Hi there,
    you could get m42 and some other bright nebulae even with your current setup however the results will not be amazing, although to start you may be quite happy with the results.

    You will at least need a T-adapter, and a remote or cable shutter release.

    To improve, you will need to improve the mount. A second hand mount eq-5 or better, would be a great idea.

    Have you made any newer thoughts or ideas?
