  1. I think the final picture has come out very well. At least U have got something to show for your efforts.
  2. This is my latest scope. Very easy to set up & use. Optics on this are first class. Got it in the offers section in FLO.
  3. Just had this delivered to day from FLO. The ioptron 150 was in there offers section. Very easy to set up use which is what l wanted. Just hope the skies start to clear.
  4. Very good. Loads of detail in that. Great planetary scope the 180.
  5. 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.
  6. U might be better off getting something like this. Just a thought. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dobsonians/skywatcher-skyliner-200p-dobsonian.html
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Very good @ least U have got something to show for your efforts. Then off to bed.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Same here in Peacehaven ,Sussex. No detail @ all.
  14. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/celestron-eyepieces/celestron-luminos-eyepieces.html I bought the 7mm EP. Highly recommended. Under rated this one. Worth every penny.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. I will second all of that. 5 hours 40mins of imaging, takes a lot of lot of going. Well done.
  18. 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. ?
  19. U have got some really good picts there. Bit to cold for me out there last night , with that wind.
  20. 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. ?
  21. 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. ?
  22. Join the club Dave. I was out last week & I could just about make out the poles of the planet. ?
  23. Very good. @ least you have got some detail on your image. Last week I could see nothing @ all.
  24. Very good clear shot of the moon there.
  25. .https://www.firstlightoptics.com/light-pollution-reduction/baader-neodymium-filter.html This is what I use.
