Title: Canon EOS M on a Celestron Powerseeker Telescope!
Post by: belalkhansocial on August 17, 2019, 03:53:27 PM
My wife got me this Celestron Powerseeker 127eq telescope a couple years ago but I hadn't opened it until recently.

I wasn't interested so much in stargazing except that I wanted to also be able to take photos and videos of celestial objects.

When I found out I can get an adapter for my Canon EOS M camera and use the telescope like a massive lens - I made the purchase and assembled the telescope.

After assembly, I went out to see if I can capture the moon rise with it.

One of the challenges though is that EOS M  is not very good in low light but Raw flexibility is great. However, after uploading to YouTube, got quite a bit of banding as a result.

After this experience I've realized that I've got quite a bit of learning to do when it comes to the use of the telescope itself.
