I have done some basic deep sky imaging using my old EOS7D and the canon 70-200 f2.8 lens and it worked out so far.
I also have a ZWO ASI224mc and a ASI178m for solar and lunar photography that I use with my scope.
Would it be better (quality / sensor sensitivity) if I hook up the 70-200 with the ASI224mc? Or is my old DSLR better?
I have no idea what features I need to compare between the 7D and ASI224 to come to a conclusion.
Thanks for the help!
