Greetings everybody!

So, I just bought my first astrophotography camera. I have an Orion Astroview 90mm refractor. I've only imaged with it a few times, but I was having awful results imaging planets with my phone through the eyepiece. The quality I was getting with the phone... either the image quality just wasn't there to stack well, or I'm doing something wrong with the software. I wanted to give it another go! So, I just ordered an ASI224MC!

I guess I will soon find out if it was me or the camera.

Next thing will be to get a bigger telescope :mrgreen: 90mm won't give big images of planets. Should be easy for the Moon.

Indeed, though that isn't a real possibility right now. Hopefully by next Christmas.

Well, it turns out, shortly after I bought my camera, I found out I was going to be moving to Texas. Now that I am settled, I decided to give my camera a try. First light!

But before I do, here is the best I could do taking video will my iPhone through the eyepiece.

And here is what I did tonight with the the ASI224MC...

I still have a lot to practice, and I'm still looking into getting a new scope. Maybe by Christmas. I'm thinking an 8" reflector.
