Below are eight parts in chronological order that discuss my experiences with using an Olympus C2020Z and C2000Z digital cameras for deep sky astro-imaging:
TO PART 1 - C2020Z FOR ASTRO IMAGING
Jupiter, Lunar and initial deep sky imaging attempts using a 2X
barlow. Camera to telescope adapter described.
TO PART 2 - NON-BARLOW IMAGING AND USE OF F/5 FOCAL REDUCER
M42, M81, M82, M57, M27 images. Also NGC 40 with a Collins I3
TO PART 3 - DEEP SKY IMAGING - LOW NOISE
low noise and Jupiter.
TO PART 4 - DEEP SKY IMAGING - LONG EXPOSURES
Comet T1 Animation, M42, M82, Planets and Moon. Maximizing exposure
length (32 seconds on C2000Z) and use of Camera Control Software.
