I am brand new to observing the night sky. I bought a Celestron Nexstar 5se telescope (first time in my life seeing through a telescope or owning one) a couple of weeks ago and I've been learning so much! I bought a Canon EOS R with the 24-105mm lens (first time owning a more than $200 camera) and I've been taking lots of great photos everywhere I go!
After viewing videos in YouTube (i.e., AstroBackyard, NebulaPhotos, etc.), I learned how to do the Manual settings and I was able to take photos with the EOS R and the 24-105mm lens of the night sky. However, I still cannot get the EOS R to work with the Celestron NexStar 5SE. I've tried many things every day (and night) over the past week, including setting the focus to infinity with the Canon 24-105mm lens, taking a picture with that setting, turning the camera off, taping the focus ring so that it doesn't move, connecting it to the NexStar 5SE, turning it on, acquiring the object, and trying to take the photo without any success. Anyone know what the trick is?... I'd greatly appreciate your advise to get my EOS R to work with my NexStar 5SE. Thanks!
