    This really interests me, what would be a good setup to get going in this area? Any tips for beginners?

    i've actually been looking at joining the hidden hills observatory club soon. it's a local scope that only members can access with a gate key and combination. then it's a 40 minute drive down dirt roads on the outside of town to get to it.

    the scope is in the middle of VERY dark hills

    anywho , it's local to me and i'm going to join it soon http://www.trivalleystargazers.org/


    other than that, i have hooked up my 10D+laptop to my buddies scope a few times in the past. took shots of the moon, jupiter, and mars

    i used 10D remote and it controls the camera and captures on the laptop

    this was the FIRST time i ever used a scope + camera

    jupiter and it's 4 moons

    very cool shit :coold:

    I don't think I can afford to get that deep into it right now, I was hoping to do just do some basic star clusters and such. I read something about something that cancels out the rotation of the stars for extended time photos, you know anything about that? :x:
