Hey to all folks, and I guess to some ladies ,|
my name is Claudia aka Lunatum in this place. Taking pics, or better struggle with many questions of which equipment, what exposure times, how is the weather…gosh all that is heavy, standing alone at midnight in the middle of nowhere….most of my friends think that I am crazy😜.Fortunately a dark sky reserve is just around the corner. To be honest I am miles away from pictures I see here, nevertheless it is a luck to read all the tips and advices I find here.
Atm I am using a star adventurer with a 60 mm/360 Ts APO with flattener and a unmodified EOS 60 . Further this year I will upgrade to a goto mount, some larger refractor ( haven‘t decided yet which one ) and a autoguider.
I hope to take part with some nice pics and keep on reading a lot of helpful posts.
Clear skies and many greeting from cloudy Berlin today

First of all, welcome and, you do not sound crazy at all :-)
I have the same little Ø60mm APO and a Nikon D5300 unmodded. So equipped, you can take impressive deep sky photos, however, the polar alignment of the Star Adventurer must be spot-on for tracking only. You may soon wish to add a small autoguide scope and camera.
