Hey everyone! I'm happy to join this forum since I'm very excited about astrophotography - moon photography in particular - and feel a little overwhelmed by all the equipment that's needed (or not needed) for practicing this kind of photography.
I am very thankful for any information!
What do I want and what do I need help with?
I would like to start with taking good pictures of the moon. That's it basically. I would love to take a picture of the moon, big enough to fill the frame and with good detail.
Some images of different moon phases, which are more detailed and closer to the moon than the basic 600mm lens on my mirrorless camera.
So to make that possible, should I get a decent telescope to mount on my camera using an adapter? Should I get an automatic one like one of these Celestron SE telescopes?
Or should I use one of these astro cameras instead of using my mirrorless? There are many products on the market that offer and promise beautiful results and it's confusing me.
Maybe some of the things I already read about are not suited or totally overkill for "only" capturing the moon. I'd be happy if you guys could guide me a bit to find the piece of equipment I really need for producing decent results.
I would prefer using my mirrorless and avoid diving too deep into crazy stacking techniques or software use, but I am ready to learn that all if it's the way to go.
