I am imaging a number of targets these days and have a question about how to best capture details of small objects such as the Ring nebula or the Blue Snowball nebula etc.
I imaged as normal with my 130mm SLT Reflector on an AZ ALT mount. I can manage at most 60 seconds in the west and east.
When zooming these objects after stacking the details are very poor. Should I use the projection method with the eyepeice in the tube attached to my DSLR because I normally image at prime focus and was not very happy with the reselts on these small objects.
Has anyone experience of imaging such objects with a reflector?
