    reading uni or hemel hempstead
  1. sounds liek collimation is out to me, cos what youve described is what you see when you slightly defocus a star at high mag when the collimation is out.
  2. looking forward to the images same setup as me bar the syntrek bit
  3. got the gpusb guider, a modded handset and neximage. First up I cant find neximage in the list of cameras, but i selected windows dwm (or somehting similar) and found my camera, which has the drivers from an spc900. I cant see anything on the phd screen tho, nto even when i shine a torch into the finderscope. neximage woprks fine in sharpcap. It is raw modded tho, is that yhe problem? thanks, tom
  4. he sent me an email containging a .mov file so i had to convert to mpeg to get it going in registax, so yes theres a loss of data there. the bigger image is a resized one, and in my experience image quality always degrades substantially when you do that.
  5. just wondering - can i use an eyepiece with a baht mask to get focus for the dslr, or do i ahve to use the dslr to take images and use them as a guide? 2nd, since i have now modded my handset for an st4 port, got myself a gpusb guider and phd, guidescope and camera, can i turn my heq5 standard mount into a goto, eg use a prog like stellarium to pick an image and ge the scope to point to it? thanks
  6. im no expert with registax! it is smaller yes, that was how big it came out from the video clip. resizing usually ruins the image, but ive tried anyway
  7. it doesnt liek the wavelets being played with too much
  8. i converted to mpeg and got it going. dunno what you'll think
  9. i dont reckon its too bad here, reading was far worse. Still havent managed to get the kit up the airfield, might have to bribe a mate one day to drive me there lol. I'tl be nice and dark up there with no light pollution in 3 directions for miles
  10. been clear all day, was looking liek a lovely clear ngiht, and nwo theres an absolute pig of a cloud drifting from the west. ARGGHGGHGHGHGGH
  11. and jason, I converted to avi btu cant open it with registax. will play aroudn abit later on
  12. i read abit, ehnce my post. but that too has been removed. ah well
  13. ah i think i see whats up. i got focus on a flower branch which was pretty near the scope. tried it with a tree further away and nothing. also, triued 3 inches and nothing. should i try 2? im running out of pipe here!!
  14. it is, couldnt get focus with 3,4,6 inches. so pulled the cam out of the tube and tried to keep it in line, pulled it out so far and got focus. ended up 10 inches. Is this too much? will it be too high a mag now? should i be able to achieve focus with a shorter tube???
