Re: IEXOS-100 with prototype polar scope unguided images #iEXOS-100

brian skinner

Hi chaps, some advice from you experienced DSLR astro photographers if possible please....
I am using a Cannon EOS1300D DSLR on my IEXOS 100 mount. The camera I picked up second hand and it came with a very wide angle lens, which is great for panoramic sky shots. I would like to know the type of lens I need for more concentrated individual object shots such as star clusters, planets and deep sky objects.
Any advise would be appreciated.
If it helps my present lens is a fixed F3.5 lens with limited zoom capability.

Kind regards, Brian
