  1. Hi , very good images U have got there .How do DSO imaging with this camera. I have got the ZWO ASI 185c camera. I use the Sharpcap software. Thanks. Steve.
  2. U might be better off getting something like this. Just a thought. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dobsonians/skywatcher-skyliner-200p-dobsonian.html
  3. I am afraid U have wasted all that money. All the blurb said it was very good. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dobsonians/skywatcher-skyliner-200p-dobsonian.html# This is the type of thing that people go for. Double the price U paid , but U can get some serious use out of a scope like this. Just fit for the bin I am afraid.
  4. What I do is a planetary align . U have got Venus in the sky @ the moment . That is what I have used. U can use the moon as well.
  5. Very good @ least U have got something to show for your efforts. Then off to bed.
  6. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/offers/offer_celestron-nexstar-5se_117221.html If your looking for another scope. Always send the handheld back , if it is not that.
  7. The main problem is if you adjust everything @ room temperature & go out on a very cold night. You will find everything tightens , up as I have found out. Trying to adjust everything on a cold night , is not much fun ,but that is what I did on my CG-5 . Worth the effort.
  8. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/moon-neutral-density-filters/astro-essentials-variable-polarising-moon-filter.html I have found this one can help as well especially on Jupiter.
  9. Same here in Peacehaven ,Sussex. No detail @ all.
  10. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/celestron-eyepieces/celestron-luminos-eyepieces.html I bought the 7mm EP. Highly recommended. Under rated this one. Worth every penny.
  11. Jupiter is still there . Got up about 4 , to have a look with the scope. Just about make out the bands. My mate next door , joined me to have a look. First time he had seen Jupiter through a scope. Not a lot to see. Better than nothing.
  12. Same here. Got rid of the C11 & bought the CPC 800 HD. The amount of use I have had out of this scope. So easy to set up use. The optics are so good. Worth the extra dosh.
  13. I will second all of that. 5 hours 40mins of imaging, takes a lot of lot of going. Well done.
  14. I order a lot of stuff from E Bay. The amount of stuff I have received that is damaged beyond use. I end up taking a picture & showing the seller. It then has to go back. I have had no problems with goods ordered from Amazon. Reluctant to order stuff off the Bay now. ?
  15. U have got some really good picts there. Bit to cold for me out there last night , with that wind.
