  6. PHD vs PHD2

    Hi guys An interesting thing I tried a few weeks ago was to use PHD2 under Linux and it worked flawlessly running alongside Kstars/Ekos, got great graphs and tracked easily for 15/20mins. Fast forward a few nights later I tried running PHD2 under Windows 10 using the exact same settings and the calibration kept failing saying the star hadn`t moved enough, had a right carry on trying to get it to work so not quite sure whats happening there??. Steve

  10. Anyone observed at Sutton Bank?

  11. Hi guys Thinking of buying a scope from Altair Astro but after reading their `supplier reviews` on SGL which was stopped around end of 2015 I`m wondering how their communications are now as customers reported comms problems back then?. A phone call I made to them this week was answered no problems!. (FLO don`t sell the scope I want - an open truss RC250 !!) thanks Steve
  12. Dovetail Mount on a Celestar C8

    Hi k I no longer have the scope as I flogged it to a mate a few years back in its original fork config. I think it was a Revelation focuser but I used the Celestron focal reducer . It was a lovely scope but had a bit of mirror flop which became a pain. I have a 120mm Espirit refractor now which I use for spectroscopy ☺. Cheers Steve
  13. Dovetail Mount on a Celestar C8

    Hi again Had a look and not much help though. Looking on an old pic I had it looks like there was some curved shaped pieces between the tube and the bar. I seem to think the tube was connected to the bar by two screws either end but not 100% sorry, don`t know if the pics help or not ;-). a shot from the bar on my refractor cheers Steve

    Good idea of Phil's to have the jubilee clips as an added safeguard 😉 Steve
