Jaime Posted August 24, 2022 Share Posted August 24, 2022 My goal in this hobby is long exposure astrophotography with my Canon EOS 5D MkIV. First issue is, the max shutter speed setting on my camera is 30 seconds. I found something on B&H Photo called the "Vello Wireless ShutterBoss 4.0 Remote Timer and Trigger for Select Canon Cameras". https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1617764-REG/vello_rcw_4_c_wireless_shutterboss_4_for.html My question is, will this resolve my max shutter duration issue? If not, can someone please suggest how else I can get around this issue (without having to buy a new camera)? This leads to my 2nd question. I know that I will need a good star tracking mount for good long exposure imaging. I've read a number of articles regarding Alt-Az vs Equatorial mounts, and it's seems to me that the EQ mounts are the way go. My question is, considering that I'm a total newbie, would that be smart choice for a beginner? Before my research I was leaning towards something like the iOptron Skyguider Pro alt-az mouint, but I'm not sure about how good these mounts will at eliminating or minimizing star streaks (or if that's even possible). Can anyone please provide some advice on these two topics? Thanks. Regards, Jaime Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
