Astrophotography automation softwares control all the devices that compose the telescope (camera, electronic focuser, motorized filter wheel, mount, autoguide, etc.) and automate images capture of deep-sky objects (such as galaxies, nebulae or star clusters). This way they maximize the recording time and do not require the operator to stay in front of the computer during the several hours of capture required in astrophotography. In this video, Filippo explains features of astrophotography automation software and shows that they are perfect for use with the EAGLE control unit.
Does light pollution affect astrophotography? Is it possible to photograph galaxies, nebulae or star clusters with our telescope also from the backyard with light pollution but using narrowband filters? Discover the result of our test comparing the image of a nebula recorded with the same telescope and the same exposition time but from a place with low light pollution and from an area near the city center.
Astrophotography cable management is complicated by the fact that a telescope to photograph the universe consists of many devices (mount, camera, autoguider, electronic focuser, motorized filter wheel, etc.) that must be connected to a control computer and to a power source. Thanks to EAGLE it is possible to simplify a lot the cable management and, thanks to its patented design, they will no longer pull or disconnect. Let's see in this article how to best manage cables in astrophotography with the EAGLE control unit, checking what happens to the cables when we control the same telescope with a classic laptop computer.
