  1. I also have a Skymax 127 and I am considering buying the AZ GTI Mount to replace my AZ Goto Synscan. Do you image anything with your set up? How do you find it generally?
  2. I will take the advice and not buy anything just yet. But I am still curious about what I can do to my Skymax 127? It wont do any harm to consider my options out of interest as much as functionality.
  3. I want to consider my options with regard to developing this scope. I quite fancy using the app to control the mount. But there may be other things I can do which are better?
  4. HI all, I am preparing to blow the dust off my SkyWatcher Skymax 127 AZ Goto after leaving it alone since 2011!! I am going to photograph the moon again at least. So my questions are......what developments have there been since 2011 with the Skymax 127 or MAks in general? What can I do to my Mak to upgrade it? For example is it worth selling the mount and getting the AZ GTI or whatever it is called but keeping the OTA?

    Hello Again

    I joined a long time ago now but have not really been around for the last few years. What did I miss? I was last properly active in 2011.
  6. Thanks for the comments. I managed to buy the lens new but actually second hand with just a damaged box for £83 delivered (and it is the APO version and not the much cheaper 70-300 version). I wanted to have a play on the cheap to get some experience with telephoto and macro before committing to expensive lenses etc. I find that I am doing a lot in PP with greyscale and sharpening but I like the results so far and will try to get better and better. I have a Skymax 127 which I will attach my Canon 60D to at prime focus. This will give me a much bigger close up without having to crop.
  7. Took this with Canon 60D and Sigma 70-300 DG APO Macro lens. One shot at 300mm f11 1/100 iso 100. I am waiting for the right environment to use my Skymax 127 and Canon 60d at prime focus:
  8. I deleted all the Registax folders earlier and just re-installed version 6 and it is working but reporting a memory violation and so I may have to fiddle a bit more.
  9. And one other thing is that when the splash screen starts it won't stop and I have to log out and back in to get rid of the splash screen !! AAAAAGGHHHH!
  10. Can someone please help me get Registax to work as it used to and nothing has changed. It shows the splash screen but won't load and just hangs (not responding - agh!). I have completely uninstalled versions 5 and 6 and need to start again. If anyone knows this program well enough to help then please do. I am pulling my hair out and have been leaving the system alone to see if it just takes a long time but that is not the case the splash screen just sits there mocking me when I come back!! I am using a dual core win 7 laptop with 6gb ram and it all used to work just fine.
  11. excellent shots well done that man!!
  12. Hi All Registax 6 hangs when I try to load it and then I cannot get rid of the registax splash screen without logging off and back on.. I am running dual core and 6 gb RAM. Any ideas?
