So I decided to take the plunge and mod my camera
The question I am struggling with is: Full Spectrum or H-alpha?
I've read through the existing forums and responses are mixed.
My unique situation is as follows:
- The camera will be exclusively used for Astrophotography
- I would like to image nebulae such as M42, North America, Heart & Soul, large galaxies such as M31, Milky Way and if possible the terrestrial planets
- I have a couple of lenses - primarily a Rokinon 16mm and a Pentax 135mm which will be used
- My camera is a Canon EOS Rebel T6
- I also have a Celestron Nexstar 8SE, but i hardly get the scope out since I live in a moderately light polluted neighborhood (LED lights)
I am leaning towards an H-alpha conversion compared to a Full Spectrum since I do not want to spend extra in a UV/IR cut filter on top.
I know the H-alpha mod works great for nebulae. How will it perform if I try to image M31 and the Milky Way?
Thanks in advance!
