ZWO bundle, thoughts?

Postby Jam » Mon May 18, 2020 5:58 pm

After my recent spur of getting back into astrophotography I've decided to finally take the plunge into the next level! I'll be moving from DSLR to a dedicated astronomy camera, along with loads of bits and bobs! Have a look:

ASI1600MM Pro
ZWO 8 position filter wheel
LRGB + 7nm Ha, OIII, SII filters
OAG (for use with either with my current ASI174MM, or trade that in for the ASI120MM Mini)
ZWO Electronic Auto Focuser
All powered and controlled by the ASIair Pro (linked up to my iPad Pro).

I've been thinking about it for years, and have only just started to feel comfortable stepping up from DSLR to mono cam. I have a decent amount of practice processing mono images through the filters on my DSLR, which I think is half the battle! It's a lot to get at once, and I expect plenty of teething problems along the way - especially with the OAG. But that's no reason to stop me... right?!
