I have an old DSLR that I planned to use for astrophotography. Turns out it's so old, "live view" isn't supported, and neither are long exposures over 30 seconds... even while using backyard EOS or APT.
So the question is... if you had $800, would you buy a DSLR, a CMOS or a CCD camera? Would you consider buying any of these used from the CN classifieds or ebay? Which camera would you get?
I have a William Optics ZenithStar 73 w/ a focal length of 430mm, f/5.9
I also have the Celestron 8SE w/ a focal length of 2032mm, f/10 (considering the focal reducer)
I plan to shoot both large and small DSO, so I want to make sure the camera I get isn't oversampling or undersampling on either of the scopes. I found the Bintel Astrophotography Calculator of great use while researching, but I'm looking to the wise and experienced minds of CN before doing too much research into one specific camera.
