Can I use my 850 for digiscoping or a lousy idea?
Jan 12, 2010

Hi, I am not an astronomer at all, just love good pics of stars/nebulas and so on.

Is it possible to take really good shots with say 1500/dollars/Euro to spend on a scope using the 850 without modifying it, which I see that many people do with their dslrs when digiscoping.

Or is it really necessary to modify a dslr to get good shots?

So, doable, or a lifelong project to modify evertything from IR capability to cooling to how knows what.

So, good pics possible with standard 850 and decent scope with say computerized motordrive?
