I have a 6” manual dob and I’m getting a 12” goto dob with tracking. I wasn’t planning on using either for astrophotography, but now I think maybe I could use the 12” with one of those ZWO video cameras to get photos of the moon and planets.
I am really confused about the whole process. Seems like it’s very difficult, but some people get good photos of Saturn with tiny 2 megapixel cameras by taking hundreds or thousands of photos and stacking them. Sometimes the photos are color, but then they recommend black and white cameras. I suppose maybe you use a color wheel and take 100 photos with each color and then combine?
I tried to find a good tutorial online to give it a try but couldn’t find much that explained the details on how to do it. Are there any good threads on Cloudy Nights you could refer me to? Do most people just learn by trial and error?
