- moon / planet! (excited geek with cheap telescope)
I can recommend checking out slacker astronomy if you’re into space but not all that schooled in it, neat podcasts and stuff about near space, and tricky stuff explained in neat ways!
Also, if you have a smart phone, there are great apps that tell you whats in the bit of sky you’re looking at… Amazing!Posted 6 years agomuddy@rseguySubscriber
What you really want to do if your telescope can do object tracking is plug a webcam into where the eyepiece goes on your telescope, take about 200-300 frames of, say, saturn or jupiter and then use something like Registax to compile the images together….telescope power is more about light gathering than magnification and this basically means that you get seriously good detailed amateur astronomy pics 🙂Posted 6 years ago
