Hello!, I would hope someone could help me out, with the connection of this netbook i use and the philips webcam on the telescope...baiscly having a problem getting the software to work with the telescope, I will post some pictures of what is going wrong.., the Stellarium Scope 'connect' button ticks briefly and un-ticks its self, and pressing ctrl + 1 it pops up with a message saying telescope 'not connected' check it is connected properly etc, which as fas as i know it is, i followed your nice guide you posted here, step by step and no joy http://img863.imageshack.us/img863/8995/49027365.png http://img805.imageshack.us/img805/6296/77942039.png
  4. did you use the extension tube like he did too? could that be the big difference?
  5. is that the biggest Saturn will get with that telescope skymax127?
  6. Amazing


  7. How does the PHD software work, I was just looking into that, I got this CCD Philips SPC900N, with that software does the webcam hook up to like a laptop and this software helps to track the stars?
  8. Google earth comes up in this format xx-xx'xx-xx"N x-xx'xx-xx"E the telescope comes up in this format xxx-xx' E xx-xx' N To find a star I should be ok with this Stellarium software that i can take outside with me to use on (iphone) so say i spotted one, I just manually find it with the scope and press enter and centre it, then select the next star and it finds that all by its self? and i am guessing that the telescope format goes like this (xx-xx' N) xx-xx'xx-xx"N <---Ignore the last four digits and (xxx-xx' E) x-xx'xx-xx"E <---ignore the last 2 digits on this one
  9. Thanks very much, I am a slow learner , I'll do my best
  10. Hello I was hoping you could help me out, I have been having trouble setting this telescope up (newbie), The GOTO system it asks for coordinates of where I am so I used google maps not to sure if I put it in correctly though, so after doing that it then asks to aglin with the brightest star or 2 stars, so when i got to that I use that software to see where the stars are to where i am standing, i select a star and then it says slew to object or something like that how do i know where to move the telescope to? that is where i get stuck, I thought it would track it by its self lol, The only thing i can find is the moon! Please help here is a picture by the way that i took with a sony compact digital camera of the moon first time using this telescope. Uploaded with ImageShack.us
  11. wow i have so much to learn lol, not sure what you mean by a camera building data.
  12. would it be possible to see anything like this with a telescope like mine? skymax127?
