Hello and Happy New Year

Postby astrojack » Mon Jan 01, 2018 9:51 pm

I am new to astronomy and got interested because I want to do astrophotography. I have successfully imaged M31 and Orion with help from my astronomy club as I do not have any equipment yet. My plans are to image with my Nikon cameras (D810) (D500) and a 500 f4 prime lens. I am researching a mount that will be suitable for this. I plan to travel so it cannot be to heavy and bulky. Eventually I may get a scope but for now I want to use what I already own.
I am sure there will be lots of good info here for me to go through :)
