I thought I’d make a nice blog post about my astrophotography gear. So here we go! My main gear are the following items:
- Camera: Canon EOS 760D
- Telescope: SkyWatcher 150PDS
- Optics: Coma corrector
- Mount: SkyWatcher EQ5 Pro
I do also have a barlow 2x convertor but I dare not use it too much as it creates a ton of chromatic aberration. I plan to switch over to a bigger mount and larger diameter telescope in the near future.
Aside from that gear I use a Raspberry Pi 4 to connect my camera, secondary camera (for star alignment) and mount to a piece of software that wirelessly sends the USB signals as hub to my desktop PC indoors.
- Stacking software: Siril or DeepSkyStacker
- Post processing: Affinity Photo & Siril
- Connectivity: Virtual Here
For software I would LOVE to buy the PixInsight license but I am not currently in a luxury budget so I will have to save up for that.
Please feel free to leave a comment down below if you have any questions or suggestions!
