So, you want to take images with your telescope? Watch this hangout and we'll tell you what you need to get started!

Taking images through your telescope is perhaps one of the hardest things you can do. It is an advanced activity that usually needs expensive stuff, like: an excellent mount, good optics, superior tracking and of course, a good camera.

This is not a beginner thing to do with your telescope, yet one of the first questions people ask who've never owned a scope before is, 'Can I take pictures through it?'

In this hangout, Tony Darnell along with amateur astronomers Alexander Reinders, John Suffill and Adam Smith outline all the pitfalls you need to avoid when taking pictures through your telescope for the first time and we'll let you know what you need to get going!
