Atic Titan for photometry?
Posted 14 January 2013 - 11:48 AM
I've been estimating variable stars, mainly LPV's, for over 5 years, and have recently began observing some of the UXOR and Irregular stars too. I'd like to give these stars closer scrutiny by learning and eventually using photometry.
Could the Atic Titan be used ? I mention this camera because I was thinking of doing green channel DSLR work, but as the Titan is similarly priced, is cooled, monochrome and I can use a V filter, and add a filter wheel to include other filters later etc..
I will be using an ed80 refractor or maybe my 6 inch achromat.

Agreed, I think I'll have to wait until a good second hand camera comes up for sale.
What do you think of using the achromat for this sort of work?

I'll ask around on the AAVSO photometry forum, maybe someone is using one or has experience with refractor/ccd set-ups.
