Thanks. I use a Canon Rebel T2i that I got in 2010. You can get them cheap now less than $300 on Amazon or get one of the newer models.
This is the only DSLR I've owned so I don't have much insight on other options. Good luck with the search and the trip.
A T2I is only $280 here [link]. What makes you say maybe?
For $300 and it includes a lens I think I can do this.
What are some cool DSO targets for a DSLR with a 250mm lens?
I'm getting pretty serious about astrophotography lately... I have a decent telescope (only 102mm, but it's solid for the time being). I also just started saving up for a nice EQ tracking mount (I've got $600 put away so far!). I've done a lot of planetary stuff, and I'm not GREAT yet... But I'm slowly getting the hang of it. I tried Orion for the first time last night, and it was so much fun! I really wanna try and do some more deep space stuff!
I'm building a simple barn door mount so I can start doing longer exposures, while I wait to save up enough for a good tracking rig. But I'm curious, what are some good targets to try? Obviously, there is Orion and Andromeda... But what else would be achievable with a well built barn door tracker, and a DSLR?
- Canon EOS Rebel t2i (with lens 18-55mm | f/3.5-5.6)
- kit lens 55-250mm | f/4-5.6
Edit: Here is my first capture of Orion from a few days ago
- 250 x 2.5s exposures, 15 Darks/15bias (untracked)
- stacked in DSS, processed in registax
I've since purchase backyard EOS, which people have told me will help with my focusing issues and be useful down the line.

I know nearly nothing about photography but this body and lens make it look like I'm competent. It's great!
I'm new to AP and am having some trouble getting my set-up to run smoothly.
I'm using a Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ Telescope with a Canon EOS Rebel T2i. I'm using a 3D printed camera adapter shooting at prime focus.
My problem is my telescope can not focus properly with the camera unless I use a Barlow lens (This Kit I tried a tube extender, But no luck.
Is there some mathematical formula I can set up that will tell me the right distance my camera needs to be from the focal point?
Is the one you're talking about?
So this one?
I'd suggest a DSLR for making movies: Canon T2i
or two chicks at the same time
If you want a higher price, I would go with a Canon Rebel T2i
Here's a review.
I dont know about where to start but this product is one the highest rated products on amazon. It would be great to start from there IMO.
