    Not exactly state of the art, but...

    Thanks for the compliment... I am pleased with the shots (as a newbie) I'm sure I will get better focus in time Wow ! Michael that shot is REALLY amazing!! The detail is fantastic... how long have you been imaging ? How many frames in the mosaic ? I've only just started really and Like I said "I've got got an awfull lot to learn" I hope that this £50 outlay can get me some better images, but of course its all in the processing Trouble is now I'm gonna have to spend more money on a filter wheel and filters so I can do some planetary !

    That's the reason that I'm so chuffed at picking up the Mono cam. I modified the colour one before, as it was all I had and just wanted to see if it was possible to get focussed . I'm sure with a bit more tweaking,it looks like it may be a winner ! Paul

    I've also done the same modifications to my colour SPC900, in order to get focus with the PST Here's a couple of pics to enable you to see how close to focus I'm getting, What do you think ?? OK - OK I know I've got a lot to learn about Processing, Its a very steep learning curve & at the moment I'm at the bottom of the hill ! First Light with Mono SPC900 - PST Prom from Colour SPC900 - PST - (photoshop enlarged) Cheers Thanks for any comments Paul

    Yes hobbit, I am aware of the back focus problem with the PST, but where there's a will, there's a way (I hope) Steve, the Barlow is the easy way round the problem and is obviously a great way to get up close and personal , but I shall want to get some (almost) full disk shots. So I think I may have it sorted.... I've rehoused the camera into a FLAT faced plastic container, which brings the sensor several mm closer and also taken a saw to the Nose Piece adapter and shortened the connecting threads which has also given me a few more mm... I think I'm getting close to focus !!
  10. I'm chuffed to bits. Recently purchased (from astro buy and sell) a Mono chipped phillips SPC900 webcam for £50. Thought it might be OK for imaging the Sun with my Coronado PST. Do you think this is a good idea or have I wasted my £££ Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated thanks Paul

    Pier foundations

    I think these are great, Ive had mine for a couple of months now (the 365 type) for my c.925/NEQ6, early days but so far no problems at all. They are expensive but I got my direct from the states...... AND saved myself a few quid.... Rip Off Britain or what ? !!
  12. Sorry All, Ive just ordered a C9.25 from FLO upgraded from my OO 6" reflector
