Hey mate was wondering if you had any experience with this camera?

I've been advised this would be a good choice however I'm unsure if this
would work well.

It's weight is 310g would it be too heavy for my scope?

Mike here: No experience with it. I do all my imaging with a Nikon D7000 DSLR and iPhone 4. You would have to modify the camera (remove the lens) and perhaps other stuff and make an adapter. Not certain how good it would be with low light levels with pinpoints of light.


Ok thanks.

How are the results from the iPhone? The adapter thing for it costs 60
here. Think it's worth it?

Mike here: I have posted many of my iPhone images on the Photos page on my observatory web site. The iPhone can get some pretty good images of bright objects.

Go back to the Astrophotography Page.
