  1. Cheers Peter, I've downloaded that and wil see if it works in the near future.
  2. Hi Guys, I'd like to buy one of the cameras for my new telescope. Alas, my laptop doesn't have a cd driver in it. Is there a website where I can down load the driver software. I've looked everywhere and can't find one. Or, if not, what about the Neximager 5 ???? Hope I've posted this in the correct place. Yours Eddie H
  3. No sorry all for one no good with scopes and no mount
  4. I have two new scopes for sale. Both never used. Skywatcher 200mm f/5 Newtonian and a skywatcher 137 mm mak. Both driven on the sw HEQ 5 mount. I have a host of eyepieces and a beximage5 camera and extended usb lead. Asking for £600 collected from Hartlepool. Pm me if interested. Yours Eddie H.
  5. Hello peeps, Gave up trying to install the new ZWO 120MC onto my computer, gunna send it back and try the famed Neximager 5. Now doubt this will run on Win 10, but surely on win 8 with its USB. Hope to get things sorted for the darker nights in August/September. Anyone else with grief with the ZWO, or is it just me and my brother. ??? Cheers Eddie
  6. Just got my new 127 SW Mak and coloured ZWO ASI. After seeing these planetary images, I'm busting for a clear sky. Looks like Monday and Tuesday are looking good
  7. Peoples. lost my old lap pie and my only copy of the above software... Boo!! does anyone have a copy of this for sale. Do holla , EddieH
  8. I believe there's a lunar eclipse on 4th April 15. Is it visible from the UK ? Cheers Eddie
  9. One thing to note. If your not using a tracking mount, and you use a small E/P. The image will fly across the FOV. Rule of thumb is the max of x50 per inch of aperture. And, these could only be optimised at times of excellent seeing. Orthoscopics are regarded as very good planetary eye pieces. Eddie H
  10. I think I'd better clear up my projection post. I used a pair of 15x70 binos, and projected onto my cabin bulkhead. Then used my mobile phone to take the image. Eddie
  11. I managed a poor Venus transit whilst in Poland 2012. camera phone projection onto my ships cabin bulkhead. Some AMAZING shots on this thread.... wow
