Haven't done any AP since the film days, and am ignorant in most all aspects of imaging from hardware to software.. Been enjoying all of your captures - but there are times I wanted to capture a really good prom . I'd be dependent on someone catching what I saw, and posting it.
Looking at the SVBONY SV105 . Saw for $60.00 on amazon.
As I read description
"SV105 works well with telescope focal lengths in 400mm to 800mm range so using a refractor telescope with this focal length should allow seeing a clear image without any accessories.
When using a refractor telescope on the Moon with over 1000mm focal length you may need a focal reducer in order to focus correctly. SVBony also sells a 1.25” focal reducer."
I am intending to use it on f /10 8"SCT to shoot both WL and H-alpha.
Camera to be behind a rear mounted Daystar single etalon with an off axis ERF in front.
The WL set up is Badder film and polarizers.
Questions would be -
Worthwhile to pursue this combo, appropriate for this use
Which is the correct focal length reducer to use.
What are the longest cables I can use.
I haven't interest right now in using multiple software programs to process images.
That has been the turn-off for me. Would the provided SharpCap be sufficient for my intended use?
Again this would be my first electronic AP camera. (My OM-1) is up in classifieds.
Haven't shot anything (outside a smartphone pic at EP) since early 90's.
Expectations are to be able to capture WL detail ,granulation and faculae well
In H-alpha would like to see the level of detail in proms I can see visually. As well as the details I can see in active regions.
Expecting too much from this camera at this price?
I'm in no hurries. Thanks
