Ok, I am in a bit of a quandry, I've been into astronomy for over 45 years. Til recently i have never had the 'bug' to capture anything. I have been doing a bit with my ETX's.
I have several scopes and frustrated with getting things to work. I'm 58, eyes not what they used to be. I have tried using a Celestron SteadyPix but get frustrated on aligning it. I have Handheld some with my IPhone.
I just bought a Meade LPI (an older one), cant wait to try it out, and I have a Meade Electronic Eyepiece.
Here is the fork in the road.
I have a laptop that I connect the ETX's through and use several programs (Meade's AutoStar Suite, Stellarium, StarCalc, The Sky, etc. Realizing that this is getting old school, I purchased SkySafari Pro5 (I have SkySafari 3,4,5 on my Iphone and Ipad) along with Meade's Stella Access.
Would I be better off dropping the older laptop and going with the WiFi for the IPad connectivity and just capturing images on my IPhone.
I would like to get some decent planetary images and maybe some of DSO that I see. Nothing major, just some simple captures to verify my observations.
Thoughts, Ideas, etc.
Here are a few that I've done.
The Moon was handheld with the ETX 125 on an IPhone
Saturn was the ETX125 on a Pentax LS465 handheld, video (best frame)
