    SGPro not slewing after plate solve

    I found that Pinpoint needs exact pixel scale settings for your camera to work successfully. Although I have the full, paid version of Pinpoint I have far more success with the free PlateSolve2. Btw what mount are you currently using? Steve
  2. Hi Ian and welcome back to the "TAL club." Great write up on what is a classic scope. In the past I hankered for a TAL 100, but as the imaging bug has took over and as the observing side of me has diminished, so as the TAL 100 dreams. You've just woken me up again. Maybe on the look out for a TAL 100....... Steve

  6. I tried to find the sports hall, but the event being sparsely populated and poor signage I couldn't find it. At one time I gatecrashed the lecture Steve
  7. Hi Steve, Turned up to the event last night, unfortunately couldn't find you but I did have a chance to gaze at M42 through the "16 inch" in the Observatory Pity about the poor attendance. I suppose the cold weather was a significant factor, although it was crisp and a nice clear sky. I did take advantage of this and whilst looking at equipment and talking to like minded folk my equipment was silently gathering data Ha stacked and b/w balanced only. Steve

    Hi, coming back after a long intermittent pause ...

    That's one hell of a construction Rainer and I admire your technical & construction skills. I too have retired from the rat race and like yourself I can immerse myself 24/7 in our wonderful obsession hobby Steve

    The Witch Broom

    That's a lovely image Ceph. If you fancy bringing out more of the nebula then a session of star reduction will help. Btw you haven't mentioned what image processing software you have been using. Steve

    Astrokev's ROR - The Build

    I stuck my neck out and purchased the RE version. It's 20 years old and being a diy nut, I've given it some abuse and it's never let me down. Btw it's a standard Jacobs chuck and there should be spares available. Steve
