Got very little response last time (except off topic). Try a different approach.
I use ASI Air for my imaging and a 533MC OSC camera. I have a quality solar filter to place over my objective lens. FWIW I also have a Nikon D750 and a T-mount but have never tried using either on my scope.
Hoping to try out whatever advice I get during Oct annular eclipse.
Given my OSC camera and AA+, what would be the best way to capture an eclipse? Not looking to document the whole thing, just get a sampling of cool pictures. I imagine that even with a filter exposure is key here. I had a crazy thought and wondered if I could use the "auto" routine for flats. That calculates the exposure automatically to push the peak of the histogram to the ⅓-½ point which I suspect could work. Never tried video with this camera since it's not a planetary.
I do have the ASI290MM Mini but have only used that as a guide camera and not connected to the main scope.
I could try the Nikon but having never hooked that up before not even sure I have the right cables nor how to implement it.
(Please don't tell me to put the camera down and enjoy it. I've seen my share of eclipses; I want to shoot this one)
Thanks in advance!
