Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Will the 1.25" nosepiece that comes with the Skyris 274 CCD Camera simply slip over a 1.25" diameter eyepiece on a telescope (or a borescope)?
I on February 16, 2015 "and ASTRONOMIK LRGB FILTER SET - 1.25" this camera and CELESTRON 5 POSITION FILTER WHEEL FOR SKYRIS-1.25 bought ROUNDMOUNTED.

In these, take the planet of the video, you have to create an image by the LRGB synthesized in StellaImage7 of AstroArts. However, you can not clean image.

First of all, whether the Exposure and Gain settings of iCap is it may be changed in each LRGB?
Or, do you all LRGB shooting with the same settings?

Then, do I need to take in IR cut filter?

In addition, to shoot in the SKYRIS of color, whether it is better that was combined with the black-and-white image?

Or more, Regards
