  1. glad it worked for you I am still having set up issues so the washers are not glued down yet but the setting up is all me !!!
  2. I have a nexstar se4 NexStar 4SE Computerized Telescope (item #11049) / NexStar SE Computerized Telescopes / Telescopes / Products / Celestron.com small enough to carry around and setup but was gift for my birthday so don't know the price sorry
  3. not too sure if this would work, but you could super glue metal washers down on the patio least if ya get it wrong youn could adjust after not like a drill hole ? long as the tripod leg fits snug ??
  4. cracking image could you tell me how and with what kit setup, you did this as I have the se4, but can not get anywhere near as good as your pic, mind you i an't got a lot of "bits" for the scope to play with yet lol
  5. newbie alert!! Not been looking with a telescope for too long. I have Only got a little nexstar se4 and put my DSLR on the back end of it. I do have a phillips web cam but have not had much luck with it. I only have one eyepiece a 25mm and no barlow My lap top is on its last legs battery wise so using outside is a no no so looks like i'm going to have to spend some dosh sooner or later lol.

  10. Yup jumping for joy first view of Saturn and first picture 27.02.11 @ 01:03 with spc900nc ( still playing with scope and ccd lol) Well I know the picture is poo compaired with others on here but seeing I did not know what i was doing I'm happy with it. I also think it was stretching the scope a bit ? nexstar 4se can not wait to use the web cam on the moon.

  13. Thank you airprox I think i was getting mixed up because i had looked at that web page before lol the philips cam from morgan are being recognised as a pcvc740k but mine is now saying it is a 900NC I gave up for a while and went out side, but the temp has dropped and the clouds have come in so came back in side and converted the web cam, so that should have put a stop to any clear skies for a while now even thou the met states its going to be clear at the weekend ! so you can all blame me
