My Check List
Posted 20 January 2014 - 02:04 PM
Obsy: ROR Type
Scope: C11 EdgeHD
Reducer: ???? Need some suggestions as I found several options
CCD: SBIG 2000XM w/ LRGB
Guide cam: Dual chip from SBIG 2000XM
Thats all I've got so far. My main targets in imaging will be galaxies and PNs. I'm not sure what else I will need as far extra bits and pieces that might seem small but really help in the way of imaging, both for ease and quality. I won't be using this set up for visual use so not interested in those kind of bits.
Feel free to add or suggest anything that would make life easier or improve my imaging.

I know that Celestron makes a specific C11HD reducer and it makes sence to use that since it was designed for that scope specifically. But at $700 it feels WAY over priced. I think its Optic Lepus that has designed and tested a specific reducer for the C11HD and its only $300. Why such a dramatic difference in price? I wouldn't think OL would make a reducer that is that much less quality....would it?
Would it be very benificial to get a full narrowband set for PNs? I'm sure some show better in NB than LRGB but not sure what is more common.
