Can you do astrophotography with a Dobsonian?

Can you do astrophotography with a Dobsonian?

Generally, we do NOT recommend doing astrophotography with your Dobsonian telescope, as the lack of a tracking mount or an equatorial mount will make long exposures impossible. That being said, photographs of the Moon, planets, and very short exposures of bright nebulae are doable with the right expectations.

How do I connect my Canon to my telescope?

A DSLR camera can be attached to your telescope using a T-Ring that locks onto the camera body like a lens, and an adapter that threads onto the T-Ring. The prime-focus adapter is inserted into the focus tube of the telescope just like an eyepiece.

What is a DOB Smithsonian telescope?

A Dobsonian telescope, simply put, is a Newtonian OTA (optical tube assembly) mounted on an alt/az mount. When John Dobson invented the Dobsonian he wanted the general public to have access to an inexpensive, lightweight, and yet at the same time a large aperture scope.

Are Dobsonian telescopes good for astrophotography?

Third, Dobsonians make for below-average telescopes for deep sky astrophotography. Due to the type of mount Dobsonians have, the alt-azimuth type, they can’t track the night sky long enough for most deep sky imaging of galaxies or nebulae. As a silver lining, Dobsonians can make for great budget planetary imaging telescopes.

What is astrophotography with a DOB anatomical scope?

Astrophotography with a Dobsonian brings its own set of unique challenges. Probably first and foremost, and the one most AP hobbyists are familiar with, is field rotation. Field rotation is the apparent rotation of objects in the scope’s field of view, either through the eyepiece or on your camera’s sensor.
