Before I can get into DSO imaging with my ASI174MM and FireCapture I first need to learn how to use FireCapture! In my previous post in this series I explained my placement of the light pollution filter in line with the RGB filter wheel. So far this looks like it will be the most promising arrangement when attempting to use my ASI174MM for DSO imaging.
I’m working through some equipment tests before I use my ZWO ASI174MM for Deep Sky Imaging. Using RGB and a UHC filter, this camera can do well. The video above shows some of the simple
If you’re reading this then you’ve got at least a passing fancy for astronomy. If you know who I am, you know I have an obsession with it. I’m here today to talk about how telescope field batteries and astronomy allow us to enjoy
My second solution to help my polar alignment was to take a blank CD, cut it to size, and sandwich it between my tripod and equatorial mount. This had the advantage of being immune to dirt, humidity (a constant problem in Texas) and offered a low
Anyone who owns an equatorial mount knows about polar alignments. If you’re not familiar with the concept I’ll explain it here. Polar aligning a telescope mount consists of very precisely adjusting the azimuth and altitude of your Right
