  1. i still didnt figure out what i am doing wrong ! so frustating !! the first thing that crossed my mind is probably an bad alignament..i assume. still managing to browse amoung the settings...hope next time i can figure out. did you removed the built in IR filter??
  2. i got mine almost a week ago, but it was too damn cloudy to give a try...cant wait !!!!
  3. thanks also for the info guys, i am about to buy mine soon...
  4. hello boys and girls ! i was so tired of waiting for warmer days, so i decided to take out my scope on saturday. temp was around 0 dgr C. not bad. after having a power tank failure in the first 15 minutes of my session, i decided to unblock the holding clamps and to a "manual" move of my scope. the main reason was also to test my new IDAS LP filter. well, THAT WAS MONEY SPENT WISE !! i live in a very polluted city, in the middle of an industrial park. the first thing that capture my attention is how black was the background while using the filter.i wonder how the filter will perform in a dark sky!! cant wait!! i never seeing Orion nebula that way(i am aware that using an UHC filter it will give me another WOW...but it's on my Xmas list)! a big WOW. i used my hands to see also the Pleiades, Jupiter and several other stars-but no DSO; not having any "juice" to properly use my scope, this is just a "raw" session. i hope in the future to pay more attention at my power tank. i will come back with a more accurate feedback, but i was very anxious to test the filter.
  5. cant get enough of it !!!! thanks
