  1. hi ian just putting the feelers out what is the absolute minimum for scope and reducer,still waiting for the esprit 100 to be available ,thanks ian

  2. 2018 I was not busy at all with Astro Imaging it seems. Two images the whole year! IC5070 Bicolour taken with C11 and Hyperstar with Baader Highspeed Filters 9 Pane Mosaic Sadr Region/NGC6888 taken with C11 and Hyperstar with Baader Highspeed Filters
  3. Rosette Nebula in Ha. Hopefully the skies will be clear later this week to add some colour to it. 2 pane mosaic taken with C11 Hyperstar and Baader f/2 highspeed filters. QHY163M CMOS camera @ 40s sub exposures guided on EQ8. When I do I will make the central cluster pop more as this is often overlooked (I'm told).
  4. Hi Geof I don't I'm afraid. The reducer was recommended for the scope along with the appropriate adaptors. Happy to sell them when you become comfortable.
  5. Hi Ian it really is a great scope. Still sitting there unfortunately. May be a keeper though maybe one day down the line I will need a refractor again its great for astrophotography and visual.
  6. Although I may be perceived as bias it is the best scope I have ever owned. No fuss, works out of the box, fantastic optics, no focuser slop. I've also got the reducer for sale plus adaptors to make this faster for imaging.
  7. Selling my Baader LRGBC filters 1.25". Excellent condition. Recently upgraded to 2" so no longer required. Looking for £176+postage
  8. Baader H-beta 1.25" filter 8.5nm. Sat in my filter wheel all its life in excellent condition. No longer required as I have a Hyperstar system which takes 2 inch filters. Looking for £66+postage or offers
