    Daystar Quark fitting to scope

    ES ED80. The tilt adapter removes the newton's rings though yeah.
  2. Hi guys. When using a Combo Quark for imaging is it best to mount it with the diagonal or straight out of the scope. I'm using a 4x powermate, tilt adapter etc. Cheers.
  3. The issue is that the 3 screws are not equally spaced around the flexible coupler. This makes it difficult to tighten it evenly.
  4. Hey guys. Any suggestions on how to attach this straight to the focuser? The screws to lock it down aren't evenly spaced so it makes it very difficult to centre it and it twists whilst moving. Cheers.

    Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ problem !

    I bought an Rpi3 and Ekos and Kstars. Hopefully my Altair camera will work with it soon once sorted.
  9. Christmas Eve 2018 50th Anniversary of the famous Earth Rise image taken by Bill Anders during the Apollo 8 mission. Scope- Explore Scientific ED80 APO Triplet Mount- SW AZ-GTi WiFI Camera- Altair Astro GPCAM2 290m Captured with Sharpcap, aligned and stacked in Autostakkert, stitched in Microsoft ICE, Wavelets in Registax and final tweeks in Pixinsight. 2 image composite. Each image 1000 frames Best 50% stacked.
  10. Think I need to learn to not rush processing and to leave an image once finished for a day or so and review it. I end up processing each image several times. This is much better. NGC 457 Owl Cluster 26/10/18, Dunsop Bridge Location- Cassiopeia Distance- 7,900 Light years Size- 150+ stars Scope- Explore Scientific ED80 APO Triplet Mount- SW NEQ6 Pro Camera- Canon 600d (modified) Guide Scope- Altair Astro 50mm Guide camera- Altair Astro GPCAM2 290M Software- APT, PHD2, EQMOD Processed in Pixinsight 20x 120s ISO 800 Darks integrated
  11. I'm much happier with this. Double Cluster (NGC 869 and NGC 884) 26/10/18, Dunsop Bridge. Lancashire Location- Perseus Distance- 7,500 Light years Total mass of complex- 20,000 solar masses Scope- Explore Scientific ED80 APO Triplet Mount- SW NEQ6 Pro Camera- Canon 600d (modified) Guide Scope- Altair Astro 50mm Guide camera- Altair Astro GPCAM2 290M Software- APT, PHD2, EQMOD Processed in Pixinsight. 20x 120s ISO 800
  12. Just thinking about the movement of the mount as I will mount the PI on the scope. The power pack will be on the floor. Maybe 2m? Trying to find a powered USB hub that will be powered off usb rather than a socket. I'm thinking of running the hub off that 16000mah small power pack that I have.
  13. Is this cable suitable to power it?
