just bought my first computerized telescope, which is an Celestron Advanced VX 6" Refractor. I also bought an autoguider with that.
I now read a lot to know which softwares are more suitable for me for astrophotography, knowing that I have a Canon 60DHa DSLR and a Mac... but it's kinda overwhelming. I know it depends on my needs: I mostly want a good easy to use software for deep-sky objects processing.
For instance, I know I will need a good imaging / capturing software, camera control as well as a guiding application, stacking software, processing software and a post-processing one. But with DSLR and Mac, connections seems pretty complicated? And the steps to follow too...
For Mac users / DSLR or anyone that knows a lot about it:
I downloaded Stellarium as well as Star Walk for coordinates and for practicing.
I heard about Astro Guider, Astro DSLR and Astro Planner. Which one(s) would be the more suited for planning / guiding / image capturing / camera control? And for dithering...something that will correct the mount for longer exposures ?
For stacking I already found an alternative on mac for DSS, which is Starry Sky Stacker. It seems it could do the job.
For processing / post-processing with mac and DSLR, I would like something that will not look too complicated for me at first: Nebulosity ? Star Tools ?Astro Pixel Processor ? And add PS or Gimp at the end ?
Thanks a lot in advance for the advices. I know it's a lot of work but I will put the efforts. I cannot wait to familiarize myself with my new refractor and my Canon.
