Altair 290C query

Post by Jason Colbeck » Sun May 10, 2020 8:48 pm

Hi there,,,I've just been using my new gcam 290C camera attached to my 102mm f10 1000mm fl refractor & I was happy how easy it was to capture Venus in phase using that Altair & sharpcap programs which came with my camera ,,it gives me confidence for the other planets when they grace my skys..but other than Venus,,I've not managed to capture any thing else yet,,I'm looking forward to learning more & have read lots of posts on here allready. Does any one else manage to get deepsky targets with a similar set up ?
