The Celestron Neximage 5 has a UV-IR cut protective window which I removed recently to see if it would solve the Newtonian rings issue with the Daystar Quark. Now that it does not have this window, I thought it would be worth testing its UV-imaging capabilities. Continue reading Neximage 5 – UV imaging

After imaging with the Olympus E-PL5, I decided that I would try my hand at imaging with the Celestron Neximage 5 with a 1.25″ 0.5x focal reducer on the Daystar Quark. I had removed the protective UV/IR cut filter and was hoping that this would help with the Newtonian rings phenomenon. Continue reading Solar imaging from 1/11/15

I do enjoy photography, and it was astrophotography which got me interested in astronomy and telescopes. I am not as interested in visual observation, as there is no picture which results from this – only a verbal or written description of what was seen. I have been interested in planetary imaging but not had the right camera for this. Hence I decided to change all this and get the Celestron Neximage 5.
