Have any of you happened to try standard EAA techniques on static terrestrial scenes ?
I am hopeful that lucky imaging (or some sort of drizzle technique)
will be effective in reducing heat and wind disturbances
from static terrestrial scenes at high magnification.
To this end I just received a small SCT (Celestron Starsense Explorer DX 5")
and think that I want to attach a ZWO ASI485MC to the back of it.
If the experiment with this scope pans out I will later need to increase the resolving power with a larger aperture.
This evening I put a zoom eyepiece the new telescope and tried it out for its designed purpose.
The Starsense phone app/mount did find itself once.
Given the seeing conditions (city lights, full moon rising, broken wispy clouds reflecting light),
I think it did ok.
I did get a pleasant view of Jupiter and 4 moons.
Noticeably clearer than the inexpensive 4" reflector this 5 inch SCT replaced.
Back to the task:
I'm new to this.
The optical path to the camera needs to match the OTA's backfocus amount/range ?
I have not found that specification on the manufacturer's site.
I suppose the camera setup distance needed could be estimated by the focal distance consumed by what they sent (screw on visual back, erecting prism/diagonal and eyepiece). Maybe I can find the specs for those.
I assume I will need to replace the "visual back" with some sort of adapter. Then add a filter holder and the appropriately chosen spacer(s) that come with a ZWO camera.
Am I missing a component in the imaging chain?
Thanks for any suggestions.
See while you can,
