    EQ6-R tripod

    Thanks - it lives outside, Will a heavy duty winter cover. Leg bolts have completely seized . I’ll give it a go & see. cheers
  2. Hi - very stupidly let the husband try to loosen a leg for me - needless to say, he’s stuffed them up. Now can’t extend / retract, the legs to get level......... ? I do have a set of HEQ5 legs, so question is - can I put EQ6-R mount, on HEQ5 legs ?? Using a 200 PDS, with guide & cameras. So not pushing the weight side too much...........but it is for imaging. thanks ?
  3. For sale. Bought this at the Astromshow a few years ago. Used a couple of times, but that’s it. Kept in the case & box. Condition is as new. Collection only please. Located Coventry West Midlands. But do travel to Lincolnshire (Coningsby) once a week, so would gladly meet up on the route. Price £1100
  4. Ohhh ?? Looks so much like my Lhasa - Tango
  5. JemC is that a Lhasa ?? looking forward to it ??
  6. Thanks - good to know ?? Yes, will be. Neither hubby or me, have skill, to make one. ?? So just waiting for a quote, to do the garden bit......
  7. It can be a bit still, by that rear dome does unscrew........
  8. Thank you for the posting & pics. Hubby will be treating to me to a pier & it's installation, for a upcoming (& rather big Birthday number ??). looking forward to it even more, now I've seen this thread ????
  9. Hi Steve, I bought a DSO ZWO a few weeks ago, still yet to use it properly though ??? How lovely, quite a special memory that ? Typhoon is my baby & especially the display. Should have his first over base tomorrow, so a brand new routine & a little excited here. An awful lot to live up to follow 2016 pilot (Mark Long - not putting flying name.....) but if you know of him, or saw the display, then you'll know how very good he was.
  10. Hello & welcome back Steve. I did the same recently & came back after a break. It's amazing how much you'll remember, once you start. Biggest change I saw, was the introduction of Polar master..........??? Clear sky's
  11. Alignment has been one of my biggest flaws. Bought it a few weeks ago & love it ! its a bit of a pain, for jumping around, when the atmosphere is a bit unstable. But a minor quibble for an awesome product ??
  12. I've just been talking to the hubby about doing a star party weekend & saw this. I've booked, for hard standing with my van ?
  13. Hello ?? hope you are well thank you, I'll have a search & try that. got a single 20 min sub tonight too, so will do that & compare cheers much x
  14. Hi all, had my first try at Andromeda this week. its not a great image, ISO was far too high at 1000, so I could do shorter subs (trying to image without guiding). Anyhow managed 94 subs,in total. When processing in Pixinsight, I'm getting grid lines on the image, following DBE process. is it happening, because the image is so noisy ? Or am I doing something very silly ? thank you ps - image below, only an iPad screen shot of it so far........
  15. Oh that really makes a difference - thank you. Just need to try & recreate now........ ???
  16. Thanks Olly. I seemed to loose the outer gas detail, when lowering the blues, but need to get lots more time with the processing & hopefully will get better........
  17. Cheers,setting & details are the thing I always wonder when I see an image. sounds like it could be worth getting a coma corrector - but, I'll be searching the differences between the 2 & if it's worth getting.
  18. Cheers Mark - you'll get that image soon. Must be due some clear even8ngs soon ?
  19. Cheers Rich. no - I don't have one, it's on the wish list........
  20. Thanks Rob, it was a right battle with that blue & not blowing the middle out ! ? Get a few more targets done, & I'll re-visit. its back to that huge learning curve ??
  21. Finally remembered how it all roughly works !! Last night (14th Feb), kicked off the kit imaging M42 Orion Nebula Chuffed to bits, to get my first image under my belt (so to speak). Details - 45 subs @ 200 seconds - 400iso Processed with - DSS, Pixinsight, Lightroom Thanks for looking
