Questions & Answers

  • can u use this camera taking pictures of galaxys

    Yes this camera can be used for galaxies.  Taking images from a dark site is best for galaxies as they tend to get washed out by light pollution in cities, and larger aperture scopes do well with them as they have more magnification (most galaxies are far and therefore quite small, apart from Andromeda).
