i'm pretty new her so here is a short introduction. 67 years, married, no kids, retired, living in Stuttgart/Germany (i bet a couple of people here have been there while in the army) with all its light pollution etc.. There are a lot of stairs to climb up to get to the next street where the car is, so the gear has to be really lightweight to carry it when i want to go to darker places which are 20km away.
Now i wanna start into guided Deep Space Imaging.
I have a Skywatcher AZ-GTi mount with a wedge, a Skywatcher Startravel 80/400 refractor and a Canon EOS 200D (Rebel SL2 in USA). As a guider i'm probably going to purchase a Zwo Mini.
The Laptop (now, later on i want to go with a Mini PC) is a pretty new Lenovo with Win 10.
What (Open Source) software do i need?
As far as i understood it:
Controlling the DSLR - N.I.N.A
The mount - EQMod
The guider - PHD2
Image processing with Siril and Gimp
Is this correct?
I ask especially for that, because it is very time consuming and to start with the wrong setup worsens it.
Cuiv, The Lazy Geek makes really nice videos on Youtube, but while explaining he sometimes looses the point, which makes it, as a non english native speaker, often pretty hard. Oh additionally there was a lot of veryvery loud music in my life.
Help is appriciated
