That actually looks decent
Some olympus cameras use the same jack canon use, I think all models since they switched to usbc instead of proprietary cables

Get yourself a Rhino release foot pedal for canon, so much easier than having to push a hand held remote,just tap your foot on the pedal and away you go.

Cable type S1 600d is in the specified camera list

Possibly a lack of light or too short an interval, but your probably better off bringing up a related thread in tackle or general, not many bother looking in this thread.
I know a few dslrs have weird quirks in live view mode, hopefully a user will have an answer for you.

The 50 will give better pics but can be impractical as you've found

Right folks, recently got my hands on a 600d and a plug in intervalometer and now have a couple of questions, mainly about the focus. Go easy as I haven't used a DSLR before

Anyway, been experimenting using the intervalometer with the Live View screen and I find that if it's set to 'Live' focus mode it sometimes doesn't actually take a shot, sounds like its focusing etc but then no actual shot taken. If I switch it to 'Quick' focus mode it seems to take a shot every other time, like it uses one shot to focus then actually takes it on the next one, is that right or have I got some settings badly wrong?

I should point out I was experimenting in my hall (it was pissing down) with a bright multi-coloured cushion and not outdoors with a fish

Also as it's on loan it comes with a 50mm and an 18mm -135mm lenses,. I've tried both, using the zoom at the 35mm setting, the only issue is with the 50mm you have to get miles away from the camera, would you suggest using the zoom is maybe a better option or not?

Thanks for that, I have been looking at gaming laptops but didn't see many 2in1 versions, and I like being able to use the digital pen in photoshop. I can use the lightroom mobile app to use a tablet in the same way but I don't think I do that with photoshop. Will have to wait till later in the year now tbh
Will check out the video later

I upgraded my PC around 6 months ago as my previous one was struggling with the latest version of Photoshop, Lightroom and Luminar AI.
I found this Youtube video useful in giving me an idea of which PC to look for based on GPU, CPU and RAM requirements:

I ended up buying a gaming spec PC, and it works really well.

Another related question, what do you guys see as minimum requirements for an editing laptop?

I bought my daughter a 2 in 1 jobbie, I put photoshop on it as she's using it a lot for coursework, so much faster than my laptop and the touchscreen with a digital pen is brilliant! So much better than my wacom tablet.

But what spec would I need, I'm not a big photoshop user, but I have been playing with focus stacks, and 8 images is about the max currently for this, also the same using deepskystacker but I do want something that would cope with a lot more images without taking a week. I think 32 images + calibration frames would be about the sweet spot.

Is it unrealistic to think I can do this with a laptop?

Anyone got any experience with astro tracking mounts?

I've been trying to get some shots of various deep sky objects with my 75mm 1.8 but with 3.5 sec exposures it's a lot of work stacking loads of exposures and results are still pretty meh, a stack of 8 images of andromeda is the best I've got so far but it's still grainy, I reckon I'd need 32 exposures to get anything decent

Ideally I'd like something small and fairly cheap so I can take it fishing for some wide field milky way shots, but I would like one up to tracking for 30 sec exposures with the 150mm equivalent lens

Annoying isn't it
I was watching a carp you tube vid the other day, reminded me of picking up the phone when someone was on the Internet in the early nineties with the focus motor jitters and clicky aperture stepping
