MINT thread! S&F Im really looking forward to all the tips on this thread.
This is making me itch for my new telescope badly. Totally Inspired! I cannot wait! I am a professional photographer fulltime and started dabbling
with a quite small newtonian about a year ago. I have some pretty cool images so far and especially the moon in its natural colors. Not the quality Id
want to share just yet but With the new one im getting I expect (and i ache) to be able to photograph galaxies as well.
Because we are moving soon Im going to wait as I currently live in a mining town and we have alot of particles in the air here which stuff my Nikon
d90 up and also get my telescope filthy and affect visibilty. My Nikon D90 DLSR also does video so the plan is on the new one if i see something worth
filming (or moving) while shooting stills I can switch it to video straight away.(Awesome!)
Stay tuned my dear fellow ATSers, its approx 3 months before i move from here but i promise to share all the good stuff with you and not be hiding
anything. My hope is to capture some ATS discussion worthy images and vids of space and also those that will help us in the search of truth of what
else is out there, for those non believers i add for you - yes IF there is anything else.
Perhaps there are astrophotogs here that can offer me some advice, Ive got a dobsonian waiting for me once i move a 12" (only cost $2500) I just dont
want to ruin it up here in the dust, but does anyone have any other suggestions of something better? I will spend up to AU$4000 to start with on the
next scope then I'll build on from there once i have more of a grasp of technology available and put more astronomy in practice and i'll get another
if i have to. (love my toys) I have 3 nikon DSLRs currently and I think more than one scope will help get my mates into too. Im not sure about the
digital scopes i know nothing about them so any info would be appreciated. Feel free to u2u me.
Have the best day or night everyone
btw im a girl, just before I get called a guy like i have on other threads.
