    Selling up

    just thought I'd add a few of the pics i took with this kit..
  4. Well it is with regret that I have finally decided to sell my kit. I started a new business a few years ago and this has taken a lot of my time and not left any spare time to really pursue my astro hobby! I spent a fair bit on this kit, but realise its a buyers market. I would like to see it all go together as would make a lovely setup for someone just getting into astrophotograhy - all you need is a camera and laptop. May consider splitting if no interest. As to price, thinking £500 the whole lot. All in working order and clean, etc. Has been stored in my office. Anyway the list of kit is as follows: Celestron C6s http://www.celestron.com/browse-shop/uncategorized/c6-telescopes/c6-sgt-computerized-telescope Celestron T-adapter (for cannon eos) Celestron Eyepiece metal case: Various filters 32mm 35mm 20mm wide angle 15mm 9mm 6mm 4mm Meade 3x Telenegative 2x barlow http://www.celestron.com/browse-shop/astronomy/visual-accessories/eyepieces/125in-eyepiece-and-filter-kit Astrozap dew sheild Celestron power tank (+various cables: mount power, eos power) QHY5 guider (+serial cable) Revelation focuser https://www.telescopehouse.com/revelation-superfocus-2-inch-sct-rack-n-pinion-focuser.html Hirsch f6.3 sct reducer Skywatcher guide scope (80mm) F400 Astro engineering dual mount (note the full setup pic has a camera attached - this is not in the sale tho)

    Hi ... out of interest do you know what virus it was? Have you kept the drive as was.. as said above a good av might clean and restore some stuff - if not you could try to 'undelete' and clean. Do you use an antivirus? Also as a good free backup solution i use G4U - its a full disk cloner... once a week I clone my entire drive to a second drive - nice and easy swap out if something goes awry. g4u - Harddisk Image Cloning for PCs
  12. wow.. thanks David, appreciate the time you put into awnsering this for me, could be my polar alignment was off then. Will have another bash when the clouds decide to play ball and see what occurs. Many thanks again to all in helping me climb this learning curve

    Lunar images needed

    sent a couple on emaill not sure if any good to you...
  14. Yeah.. I bought the C6S-GT a complete noob.. but its done me well as a starter scope. As to the DEC thing... I see in PHD you can turn off DEC - so will try that also - see if it fixes anything.
  15. just been having a read around the forums and internet.. the CG5 doesnt have PEC... but from what ive read if i'm autoguiding this shouldnt matter? Is this PE always gonna be there because of the way the gears are machined or can a refurb/grease up sort this out? Is this mount not really suitable for long exopsure photography? Should I take this down to DHinds for a refurb or should I save for a HEQ5/6? I'm pretty confused :S lol
