What can I photograph with STELLINA?

STELLINA is what can be called a “large field” astrograph (astrophoto camera) because its field is about 1° x 0.7°. To get a better idea, the Sun and the Moon represent a field of about 0.5°, so they perfectly fill the sensor’s field. STELLINA is designed for deep sky objects such as galaxies, nebulae, star clusters or comets etc. However, it depends on their apparent size, not all stars are observable (there is no telescope that can observe everything) but a catalogue of hundreds of stars is already waiting for you!

The constellations cannot be photographed because they are way too large to fit into the scope of a telescope. A DSLR is enough for this type of image.

The planets have a very small apparent size (for example, around 0.01 ° for Jupiter), STELLINA is therefore not the best intrument for planetary observation. You’ll be able to distinguish the rings of Saturn and Jupiter’s band but in small pixels only.
