    Hi, bbradford. My experience with using a DSLR to capture planets is that you get a small image. I would suggest getting a space camera. I have a ZWO ASI 224MC and an Orion 5MP StarShoot Solar System camera that I use with a Celestron 2x barlow to capture video of the planets that I later process in Registax 6 to achieve a final stacked image. If you use a DSLR, you will need to experiment with the exposure settings and see what works for you. Make sure you have good focus and find the right exposure balance so you capture detail but don't overexpose the image.

    Regards,
    Reggie

    There are two primary types of software development teams https://mlsdev.com/blog/71-development-of-mobile-apps-for-food-delivery-services: specialist teams and general teams. Specialist teams comprise professionals who specialize in a specific area and solve a narrow problem. Each professional assumes full responsibility for a particular element of the project. Such a team is good for creating a complex system quickly, but it can also result in conflicting components and communication gaps. For these reasons, the software development team should always consist of a specialized group, with specialists in one specific area and a general team to take care of the rest.

    Yeah, all Matt Damon would have needed was a kettle when he was stuck on Mars.



    Of course, I'm not sure what he would have filled the kettle with though. :eek:
