okay,I went ahead and bought an orion G-3 ccd color camera. I want to get the hang of it before i go and get a more expensive model so all of you big boys don't make fun of me. gotta start somewhere right? My question is the software that comes with it doesn't seem to work all that well.what do you suggest to run the camera plus the autoguider that will be smoother? any Ideas will be greatly accepted. Thanks!! also can anyone take some snapshots of there initial focus screen shots so I can see what i need to do as far as getting the image to process right. I was trying orion nebula for starters and I thought i was getting good focus but when i went to look at it it was too dark. anyway learning!! Thanks!!
Maxim DL is the best software for this hands down. Most people use Maxim DL.
