In Episode SH024 of Star Hopping…
In this Star Hopping “Extra”, we’ll continue our Basic Astrophotography series. In this episode we’ll talk about all the equipment, setup, and procedures to perform piggybacking astrophotography: the effort of using the telescope’s motion to capture astrophotos with your DSLR camera and lens.
Here are some links to the astrophotography products we discussed in the episode.

- A lens (general at Amazon)
- An Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece (Orion Telescope Center)
