Camera?

Postby sympatico157 » Tue Jan 03, 2017 5:55 pm

Hi, I have a celestron nexstar 130 slt and i am looking into buying a dslr mainly for astrophotography. I realise that i will probably need to buy a 2x barlow in order to solve focus issues but does anyone have any recommendations? I have about £400 to spend, including the barlow and any adaptors, but i can go over if its impractical to get decent photographs in that price range. Thanks for any suggestions, J

I have a Nikon D3200. This is what I've been up to with it, except for the solar hydrogen alpha shots. There's also lots of non-astro photos there, too:
