I just got the Canon EOS 1100D, which is definatly a step up from point and shoot cameras... My current scope is the Celesctron Powerseeker 80mm EQ.. the mount is fully manual, so i cant quite track yet.. I've been working on wide field astrophotography lately (especially around the cassiopeia-perseus region) and the results are fairly nice! I even managed to capture the andromeda as a sudged elliptical shape!
Hi All, Tony here from Ireland. I am new to the forum and to astronomy/Astrophotography. Photography has been a passion of mine for over thirty years. I have Canon 400D, 500 and 600D, my new baby. Fav lens 300mm f4 L and 50mm f1.4 also 1.4x teleconverter. I recently got an astromaster 130eq/md and it surprised me how much light it grabbed and how stable it is for a serious coffee drinker. Hoping to post soon when I figure out how to, clear skies all.
My name is James and I recently purchased a Canon eos T2i. I have been interested in astronomy for a long time but am very new to astrophotography. I live in central Missouri in the Ozarks so I have plenty of dark skies to practice.
Hi, I'm Aubrey and I also have a Canon EOS t2i It is a nice camera so if the pictures don't look right yet, blame me. I am still learning to edit and be patient through the cold.
Hello, my name is Jurgen and will start using my EOS 400D for astrophotography in the near future! I'm new to the hobby so still have to learn a lot!
Hi my name is chris i'm wanting to take some pictures of DSO's or at least give it my best shot i know its prob not gonna happen since i dont have a goto mount but i still wanna try. I have a Skyquest XT12i and a canon T2i With the t-ring and extension for my scope. I am wondering what the best iso and setting on the camera would be? I tried to take pictures of just stars alone but all i see is black. Unless i point at one of the bright stars. I want to get a good pic of some of the Galaxies but as i said i cannot get any stars to show up. Is this because i have the camera only set to 10 sec exposure?
Hi, Dale here. I have a Canon 400d and a 40d. The 400d's pop up flash is broken, so I've dedicated it to AP work. Right now I'm in between scopes, but have an 8" EQ reflector on order. I have the necessary 1.25 and 2" adapters to mate the cameras to the scope. I'll probably find that I use the 40d more, with it's live view feature. I've shot some planets before with limited results, but had problems focusing or with balance (on my old 4" mak-cass with goto mount). I had some good results years ago with a Canon AV-1 film camera shooting comets hyakutake and hale-bopp in the late 90's just on a camera tripod.
Hi all, just joined the forum a day ago and am anxious to exchange ideas with this group. Quick AP equipment list: several refractors and also a Schmidt Newt. Mount is an Orion Atlas EQ-G. Camera is a Canon T2i.
Hi Everybody, looking forward to exchanges in here...
I have one of the new EOS 60Da's
Hi all. I'm just getting back into astronomy after my retirement. I want to make use of my Canon 450D. I just purchased a CG5 GT mount and I'm thinking of mounting my 8" SCT OTA on it for some short exposer shots.
