  1. Afraid I'm not intending to be in that area in the short term Magnus. Postage costs are probably a bit prohibitive as well.
  2. I've currently got 2 that are soon to be sold an older blue with 2 speed focusser upgrade and a black diamond 200p - both ysed purely for imaging, are you after any particular model?
  3. I may have one coming up for sale soon. It does however, come with a handset, has Polemaster on it and is on a portable pier as well as tripod legs so will be looking at bundling it all together. I'll put a price together if you're interested in that setup.
  4. At the time Military. I enjoyed the last two ?
  5. Welcome to the forum. You've got me thinking about blisters! I've done the March 4 times in the 1980s !
  6. It's possible to mount centrally. Or if you want them both on one side I'd go for Mak + ST80 on one side ED80 on the other. It will be easier to balance with a smaller weight difference between the sides.
  7. Great, dedicated capture and very nicely processed. I know how tricky this one can be to control the core.
  8. Currently impossible to see evidence of the moon landings from Earth, even Hubble can't resolve it with the huge mirror in space. Only the Lunar reconnaissance orbiter LRO got close enough to take some decent photos https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/main/index.html P.S any talk of fakery will have undesirable consequences ?
  9. I've done 1 hour exposures with a HEQ5 and ED80 combination. Guided of course.
  10. Could be this one, but read carefully about the Windows 10 issue http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowProduct.aspx?p_id=225&pcid=41
  11. Depends on the cable type? What cable and mount is it?
  12. In the past I have taken specific fast subs just for the stars; as in 30 seconds fast. I've then combined that set for smaller stars with longer star subs for the colour.
