Graham from Manchester
« on: 22:11:08, 04 November, 2017 »
Hi all,
I'm Graham from Manchester, still quite knew to astrophotography/videography (a few months in).
Just wanted to introduced myself!
I recently ditched my 600d DSLR in favour of going for CCD.
I have a Williams Optics ZS61, saving for 70mm and a 80mm refactor scopes.
I'm I'll be posting here often, the forum looks good!
Cheers,
Graham.

Hi Chris,

I've looked at a number of different CCD's, still hunting! although I think I'm leaning towards one of the colour Altair Astro "hypercams".

I'm trying to sort out a side-by-side guidescope for my rig at the moment, I'm considering getting a colour-CCD for the Refractor (as mentioned above) but also a (cheaper) mono-CCD for guiding.

Any recommendations/tips?
