I was reading about how to get started in astrophotography and that afocal photography was a good place to start. I purchased the Orion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount.
I did a test inside the house and the results were fine. I had to turn off the flash on my camera along with setting the delayed shutter to avoid any movement from pushing the shutter. I did some experimenting with camera modes but ended up just staying with the automatic mode.
I will need to do more testing outside.
