My Astrophotography
Sun, Planets and Moon

Our Solar systems objects are easy to see. The Sun can be studied daytime and its dark spots, but be careful, never look in the telescope direct it will burn your eyes in a glimpse of a second ! Moon set and rise are beautiful to see or take photos of. To see any planet details you need a telescope with long focal length.

If I had taken those photographs today (2019) I would use the following of my equipment.

Camera Lens / Telescope Reducer / Barlow Mount Comment
Canon 6D TS130, 910 mm x1- x3 SkyWatcher EQ6 Sunspots, Planets
Canon 6D Pentax 300 mm x1 SkyWatcher HEQ5 Sunset, Sunrise, Sun & Moon eclipse
Canon 6D Sigma 150 mm x1 Tripod Sunset, Sunrise, Sun & Moon eclipse

You need a bigger telescope to get more interesting results of planets, maybe a 10" Newton with a x4 Barlow and a fast CMOS camera. When taking photos of the Sun, don't forget the important Solar protection filter, without it the camera will be destroyed and your eyes too if you look into the camera or telescope, it's dangerous even to look at the Sun direct with naked eye !
