Hi, I am trying do some planetary imaging.
I am using a ASI 244mc camera and i am using a Skywatcher dobsonian that has goto tracking.
Software for imaging is FireCapture.
So say i am working on Jupiter for example.
I can get an image on my laptop if i just use the 224mc camera by itself, So camera is straight into the eyepiece.
But when i go to use a barlow, either 2X , 3X, 5X i can't seam to get an image or find the planet.
I start out at the beginning, camera straight into the eyepiece, move the scope around slightly to get the planet dead center in the screen ( it is fairly small at this stage )
I then take the camera out, install a barlow, install the camera and no planet is visible.
Try slightly moving the scope around a bit and still no sign of the planet.
Is there something that i am obviously doing wrong here?
I figured that i should at least see some part of the planet when i installed the barlow.
And advise would be greatly appreciated.
