  1. i like the mount for it to float in the box idea if but it could rattle things loose if u was transporting to different places. u could make a box out of exterior grade ply 9mm should not take on moisture and it wont be to heavy and u could add casters on the bottom to help move about and line with foam
  2. Hi is this still available available
  3. so here is my second go all the same as above but with a cls filter and more time learning ps6 nige

  6. Hi thought i would post my first attempt with my new kit, 20 subs x 300s 15 darks 20 bias unmodded 500d and SW80ED/EQ6 really struggled with light pollution as i live about 3 mile away from a steelworks , i no i need to learn to process better but is this a reasonable image for my unmodded camera thanks nige
  7. hi Phil the easiest way is to use the live view feature on the camera if it has it not sure on the 400d hope this helps

  13. just recently i spend most of my time looking through older diy posts for ideas for projects for the future, i downloaded google sketch up3d a few monthes ago i now have a few designs for projects. thats how i have been passing the clouds nige
  14. even though i now the solution i get caught out on a regulary very anoying:icon_eek:
  15. thanks sarah i had forgot about the shorter focal length i have been saving for a imaging rig i just hope i can save up enought before flo put the prices up. nige
  16. hi have you considerd the Skywatcher Equinox 80 APO PRO OTA over the evostar at the min at flo the price difference is only £40 it seems silly to me for £40 you could get a nicer finish and better focuser nige
  17. the north lincs astro group meet at farings nature resurve just the other side of the bridge if you click the link in my sig their is a map on our website the we hav good views to the south and west east is a little bit obstructed but you dont get any lp from hull or the bridge and not that far away from you
  18. the button next to the menu one is a display on off button press this after seting up and the display will only show the subs after capture but wont go back to the bright settings display till you press the button again.
  19. the 130p isnot very good for imaging the mount is not the right type of mount for dso imaging but u could get a few shots of the moon with a webcam, the 130p is not great for planets ether not enought focal length. it is not bad for looking at dso i have the 130p goto and have seen a a good few dso but i new within a week i wanted a new scope
  20. hi guy another option the bresser 10x50s are a real bargin you can pick them up for about £30 they use the same pisms and glass as alot of more expensive makes i have compared them with some meade and celestrom and they seem to give the same performance if you keep an eye out they come up in aldi and lidle for about £15
  21. when i was looking at bins i was told to look for a pair of 10x50 with poro prisms and bak7 glass 10x50 are easyer than the 15x70 to handle without to much shaking i managed to pick up a pair of bresser 10x50s for £11 from the local aldi they dont come around much, they are exactly the same as the meade 10x50s but much cheaper hope this helps
  22. The slt is a good scope for planatry viewing/imaging because of the long focal length it has were the dob would be great for viewing hope this helps.
