Newby - equipment
« on: 01:45:45, 18 March, 2012 »
Hi, folks.
I'm an  image scientist and I've decided astrophotography for my major project. The main thing on my project is to approach image quality through Fourier Transform.The thing is, I couldn't get a telescope in my university and I have only a full frame camera (D700) with a 1000mm reflex lens and a TC-301. I wonder if there's any chance to capture M31, Saturn and Jupiter with this equipment or if not, if anyone knows a cheap telescope that can do the job. I have only £200 for the scope budget. I mean,I have to buy the scope, t-rings, etc with 200 pounds. I know it's bad, but if I get to capture those images, I'll enhance them later on MATLAB and digital filters, which is the whole point of my project. I really hope you guys can help me with that.

Thanks in advance.

If your project is mainly about data processing, why not use someone else's data?

You may also want to have a look at Pixinsight and get in touch with the guys there, they even have a data sharing section!
