  1. I'm currently using an AP with my canon 700, With Redcat 51 on an eq5 tripod,also a WO uniguide scope (although still saving for a guider etc) I've managed 'ok' images of M51,M57,M27 and of course M31 amongst a few others but find I'm struggling on nebula such as around Sadr and the N'American nebula, I think I need an lp filter,
  2. The adapter is a T48 you just have to get one for your camera, I've a 700d and red cat
  3. This was mine from the last transit of mercury, (Mercury at the bottom not very visible in this image)
  4. Thanks guys,its good to be back
  5. Well,I lost my old password and couldn't get into the group,things (life) got in the way and a few years have past,but .. I'm back, So glad to be here again, JJ..
  6. I was going to bed but I saw first contact and figured what the heck, so Il be staying up watching nasa tv live (ish) all night,and with any luck get some images in a few hours time.
  7. nasatv.gov has the feed going on right now, its awesome watching all night :-)
  8. I managed to capture Venus through my Meade ETX-125 earlier, Not the best conditions as I was rushing to get it before it disapeared behind a tree, But at least I got a few vid's and a couple of grabs through the Asda cam (the high res version), nothing to write home about I know JJ..
  9. Is your mount level ? Just looked at mine and one of the legs must have been getting smaller over the last few months ! Can you calibrate the motors etc ? JJ..
  10. I get about 300x in that case :-) its just a figure I can throw round thanks, I managed to get some avi's of Mars last night but got nothing more than an amorphouse over exposed blob, At least I know it all works,didn't have the scope tracking just kept tapping the controls to keep Mars roughly centred, The FOV with the asda cam is very small and it took about 5 mins of searching to actually get Mars on the screen, It feels like a steep learning curve :-)
  11. Ok, I think that's covered that ok and I can understand it a little better !, sorry to have briefly scewered off the thread a bit, Laptop on standby waiting for those clear skies they keep on about (lol) Thanks, JJ..
  12. Quick question .. Compared to a 35mm type camera what's the 'magnification' when using one of these camera's, My scope is f15 mak cass, Is it easy to figure out as I imagine it all depends on the fl of each individual scope, Just thinking it'd be cool to mention the equivalent magnification to non Astronomers. JJ..
  13. Where are you getting all these clear skies from ? All I'm gettin here is cloud and rain ! You are getting some great images of the Moon,Mars and Saturn ! JJ..
