That is an unboxing, setup, and evaluate of my new ZWO ASI224MC Colour CMOS Imaging Digicam – it may be used for deep sky, photo voltaic system, and lunar imaging. I plan to make use of it for planetary work. This video can also be my first try at capturing Jupiter with the SharpCap software program – I am utilizing 2.9, however model 3.Zero can also be accessible (you possibly can see my settings for SharpCap later within the video). The info was stacked utilizing AutoStakkert. To {photograph} Jupiter, I eliminated the focal reducer from my 8″ NexStar telescope to present it extra focal size. Right here is extra data under on my astrophotography setup:
