  1. wow i love the jupiter one, basically the skywatcher and celestron are the same scope arent they? was this in a very non light polluted area?
  2. never heard of sharpcap. is that better or just your preference? thanks for replying.
  3. Hi i forgot to say i have already installed the icap and registax software that came with the camera Thanks
  4. Hi I got a new celestron neximage for xmas and i was wondering if there are any guides anywhere to help with getting started? I want to focus on the moon, Jupiter and saturn mainly. I know attaching the camera to my nexstar 127 i wont get brilliant images of the planets but if anyone has any advise for me it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  5. Just looked at my laptop lead and it has a 5amp fuse in it. So should I use the same in my setup? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Have you put fuses into the wiring circuit? As I'm currently in the process of building my own power tank ihave got a 4 way fuse box, one each for 2 cig sockets, a usb and a voltmeter. I'm going to run my 127 nextstar of one socket and later on a laptop out the other. So I need to find out what fuses people use or suggest. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi I took 3 or 4 half decent shots at 30 secs on each possibly ISO of 1600 or 3200 as i said the clouds rolled in before i could play around too much with the settings, but next time i will try other ISO's. I have photoshop so i will give that a try next time too. im hoping to look at making a portable power tank soon so i can venture to clearer skies so i can escape the dreaded street lights and block of flats at the end of my garden lol Thanks for the advise. Chris
  8. Hi guys and girls Tonight i made a first attempt using my unmodded canon 1100d with t adaptor attached to my celestron nexstar 127 slt. I know these pics are nowhere near the quality of some on here but we all have to start somewhere lol. first try at Andromeda M31 and M32 and M27 the Dumbbell Nebula Both were taken in my back garden, with lots of light pollution and hazy/cloudy skies lol Any tips would be greatly recieved Chris
  9. ok great thanks for the reply, that could have messed up my next session lol Mods.. if need be this thread can be closed i have my answer, thanks
  10. hi sorry if this is in the wrong forum but if i get an answer this can be deleted right basically my barlow decided to unscrew in the wrong place and all the lenses decided to fall out i managed so save most of it but its just the lens which is came out first has a flat side and a curved side and i have no idea which way it goes back into the eyepiece. http://www.f1telescopes.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/bp23_0n2956185_01__barlow_body_and_lens.jpg in the picture its the lens that would be at the very bottom by the grip on the outer edge of the ep. please can someone dig out their own ep and just tell me which way round it goes back in. Thanks
  11. i was thinking that lol. time to go shopping. thanks for your help hopefully i'll be boring everyone with pics soon lol

  13. This is a pic of the celestron t ring on my canon and my baadar Barlow mounted in the back of my scope. It does look like the adaptor above would fit inside the t ring and then into the Barlow Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. wow sorry about the size of the pic lol
  15. so if i was to use the celestron t-ring i use now to connect my camera to the scope, along with this i could use my barlow to zoom in?
