Wow you could even do deep sky imaging with an SE mount if you can get detail like that in such short exposures! It's fine up to 30 sec exposures.
Well yes, but you see, the price is... pricey.
And doing sub 30s exposures really does not let the camera shoot to its full potential.
How do you feel about stacking? I've been playing with DSS and wonder if stacking 40 15 sec exposures will result in a better SNR than doing one 10 min exposure? I wonder if it will help with light pollution too.
It won't be like a 10 mins exposure, but it will definitely still go very far as to increasing SNR. Just make sure you take callibration frames too (flat, dark, bias.) Extremely important no matter what camera you use.
In other news, I managed to finally make use of my new camera and got 3 hours of Ha data on IC 1396 last night. Now I just need 3 hours of OIII and 3 hours of SII approx to make my first fully colored narrowband image
In retrospect I wish I had chosen a brighter first target as this one is unbelievably faint. I attempted it on my DSLR before but I just could not pick up any significant amount of signal over my light polluted skies. Well it's not like I have many choices anyways right now being pretty far north so eh, can't complain.
