  1. 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.
  2. I will second all of that. 5 hours 40mins of imaging, takes a lot of lot of going. Well done.
  3. 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. ?
  4. U have got some really good picts there. Bit to cold for me out there last night , with that wind.
  5. I have a CG-5 mount which is nearly the same. Mine sounds like a coffee grinder @ full tilt , but tracks perfectly . Have re greased & checked the gear meshing & all ok. So I just put up with it now. ?
  6. You have noticed as well , being In the same neck of the woods so to speak. U must be looking at a different Mars to me. ?
  7. Join the club Dave. I was out last week & I could just about make out the poles of the planet. ?
  8. Very good. @ least you have got some detail on your image. Last week I could see nothing @ all.
  9. Very good clear shot of the moon there.
  10. .https://www.firstlightoptics.com/light-pollution-reduction/baader-neodymium-filter.html This is what I use.
  11. Very good image . Having a big scope, really does come into its own on the planets.
  12. This one below was the year before which is a bit better. Mars.tif
  13. This was taken of Mars last year with my old camera which came with a built in I/R filter. This was about the best I could get believe it or not.
  14. I have only got a colour camera , so I cannot capture different colour channels like you . I will have to give it a go , with out the I/R filter .
  15. I presume it is better to leave off the IR cut filter for Mars. It is a must for Jupiter .
