  1. Hi guys. I'm building a desktop that will mainly be used for image processing and a bit of gaming. I know that it's not necessary but would there be benefit to image processing with having a 4k monitor and GPU capable of running it? Cheers.

    Quark spacing help!!!

    The barlow increases the focal length though yeah? Like I say for observing it's amazing. Just imaging thats the problem.

    Cheers bud. I'll have to get a 3x Barlow. Only got a 2x aswell but that drops it to f12 where f15-f30 is what is says it should be. There is a stunning looping prom right now at about 3 o'clock. Getting bigger

    Quark spacing help!!!

    Hi guys. I have a Combo Quark. Using it with a 5x barlow, Explore Scientific ED80. I get get focus fine for observing with the one 40mm spacer that the scope comes with but having issues when using a GPCAM2 290mono. Ive tried with the single 40mm and both which gives 80mm. Also using a diagonal. Any suggestions? Thanks
  9. Join us at the Jeremiah Horrocks Observatory on Moor Park in Preston for our Observing Nights. Have a look around the observatory, see the Cooke refracter and various displays. Every 3rd Thursday of the month until March.

  11. I was meaning the tripod. Can you not pan around with the AZGTi? Thats important as I'll be using a Quark Combo. It will also be used for night time observing.
  12. Do you guys have any examples of any other mounts that may be a bit more portable? Not too expensive.
  13. Will my mount from my NEQ6 work if I remove the part for the azimuth adjustments?
  14. Can't seem to find a tripod at a reasonable price that can support 5kg which the mount can handle. Don't really want to spend a fortune.
