Hi, I have a Skywatcher Evostar 150ED and currently been using a DLSR for taking Planetary video.
I was just interested to here anyone's thought or advise on what the ZWO ASI224MC Camera is like for Planetary work.
It might be a silly question, but will i get better results using this ZWO ASI224MC Camera compared to my DLSR ( 5 DSR )
The main reason is as some might know, you can't get true 1:1 ratio with a DLSR when recording video unless you use a special program like Backyard EOS.
I don't have this, just using the DLSR as it is at the moment.
If the ZWO ASI224MC Camera is a better option, is there anything else that i need to get with it ?
I have read somewhere that some are saying you need a IR blocking filter if using on planets, something like this from badder :
Do i need to use a barlow with this ZWO ASI224MC Camera or is the magnification all done via the software in the camera?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
