I have been unsuccessful at imaging Jupiter and am looking for any guidance. Here is my equipment:
Celestron NexStar Evolution
6" Alt Az Mount
FL 1500mm F/10
Celestron Star Sense
Nikon D500 (attached to telescope with a 2x convertor)
When I look at Jupiter through an eyepiece (before attaching the camera) it is very bright and even with the electronic focuser, I cannot seem to get it in clear sharp focus (it's just a bright blob). When I attach the camera, I use live view, zoom in on the planet and try the focuser again, and not able to get a clear sharp image. Does the size of my telescope (6") hinder this?
Any thoughts or guidance appreciated.
