Have you ever wanted to use those $25,000+ telescopes?

Hi, how much did your telescope cost you?

They must be pre made pictures, unless people are running these through post processing themselves or have to wait a fair bit of time before the results are coming in.
DSO astrophotography requires serious amounts of time and effort and is somewhat a kin to witchcraft.

Although on a quick look around it does seem as if they have got the process all included and as automated as possible. Looks fun, but it could get expensive.

That particular scope is the Celestron C6, they run around $1100 to $1200 new. I found that one used, for considerably less.

I have a 5 inch Meade Reflector.

I go up to my Mom's place up in northern Minnesota where there is no light polution
and it works great.

I take pictures through the scope now with a good handheld camera but I would like to upgrade to something better.

I'm just starting to save up for a good astrophotography camera.

Do any of you have a suggestion for a camera I can use that would give me the most bang for the buck
with a 5 inch telescope?

Had to reply to this again.

Who on earth can look at the night sky and not want to see a far as they can?

That's staring right down the barrel of the greatest mystery the human race will ever contemplate.

Amazing!

Great info OP.

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! This will be fantastic. I'm still using my old Meade Polaris so this will be wonderful! So very kind of you to share this info. I never even thought of searching for a "rent a scope."

Wow! Some very nice pictures taken.

How exactly does the process work? Do I sign up and have some sort of limited time to take a picture?
