    Default Astrophotography

    I intend to buy an 10" LX200 for Christmas... Now the Question!!!
    I do not have the funds for a high-end CCD/CMOS camera but I do have a
    Minolta MVS-DC500 digital camera with shutter speed of 8sec to 1/2000
    sec. Given these figures can anyone tell me if I should be able to do
    deep-sky photography or will I be limited to Solar system. BTW: my
    expertise is image acquisition and enhancement (Retired scientific
    programmer analyst)

    Thank you for any help

    Pretty much limited to solar system (Saturn and inwards).

    Now, a modified Vesta Pro (SC) will get you some really nice first
    timer images in deep-sky photography.
