Imaging Venus using ED80

Just a very quick shot of Venus. From setup to disassembly took 40 min. Just shows you how much easier and less time consuming planetary imaging is. ED80, AVX, QHY5L-II-M and 3x Televue Barlow After stacking in Registax and applying wavelet processing, a fellow redditor used PixInsight to sharpen the image by doing a deconvolution […]

The path to Guiding

Entry level equatorial mounts don’t tack accurately for longer than 60 seconds. It gets even harder to track precisely with longer focal lengths. Guiding is the answer and my next major goal in improving the astrophotography setup. By guiding, you can keep exposing for much longer times (5-15min and even beyond). That will allow you […]
