I'v been fine tuning it for about 8 months
The telescope is a 8 inch skywatcher $600 and the mount coust me $200
I made a cradle out of a iphone car holder and a bushbike handle bar light mount.
I use 3 apps-
A cammera app witch lets me manualy set apiture and focus
A slow mo app and stabalizing these help stop the shaking you get with the zoomed in shots just breathing on my wooden balcony will cause voilent
shaking when zooming.
You dont need to be in the middle of nowhere to do the moon city is fine you just want a nice stable ground to setup on.
I'm realy looking faword to my next camping trip now the I got the camera mount sorted out i should be able to zoom in closer with clearer qualty
once Im off the balcony
If you look though some of my other youtube videos you will see how as Ive gotten the cammera more stable the quality has gotten better
