    Probs with Coronado PST

    Thanks Peter. It never used to do that. I'll try a black cloth over it next time!

    Better Planetary Cam?

    Thanks James.

    Better Planetary Cam?

    Thanks guys. I want a small FOV so would small pixels be best? This is something I don't really understand.

    Better Planetary Cam?

    Many thanks.

    Better Planetary Cam?

    Lol! I'll want to keep it I think. Might try it as a guide cam if colour is OK. Sorry!

    Better Planetary Cam?

    Someone's selling a DBK21 for £75. Is that a good cam compared to the ones you've recommended?

    Thanks James.

    Better Planetary Cam?

    Thanks James. If I can get a better one second-hand, what would you recommend?

    Better Planetary Cam?

    I have an old ZWO ASI120MC cam I got second-hand which I don't think is USB3. The frame rate isn't great. I want to have a better cam but really don't want to spend more that £250. I would prefer a colour version as I can't be bothered to faff about with filters (no debate on the merits of mono over colour please! I know!) Not a bigger sensor as I don't want a bigger FOV. What would you recommend, and why? Alexxx
  10. My Coronado PST doesn't get used very often and is kept safely in its box, so I can't understand what this problem is. This is the second time its happened, in succession. I changed the Barlow (can't get focus without one) and checked for leaks everywhere. Any idea what the cause might be? Is it still safe for visual? That's my main concern. Alexxx
  11. Do you know if it'll reduce the red halos I get round stars with my modded Canon? Is there any way I could use this with my Canon? I normally use a clip-in filter.

    Please Explain Debayering

    That makes so much sense! Thank you.

    Which CLS Filter?

    Hi all, which CLS filter would be best? I get nasty red rings around the stars with my modded Canon and wondered if one of these would stop that. https://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/astronomik-cls-ccd-deep-sky-light-pollution-filter-canon-eos-clip-fit.html https://www.tringastro.co.uk/skytech-cls-ccd-canon-eos-clip-filter-12845-p.asp Alexxx
