  1. A few months ago I mounted my canon 750d with 18-55mm lens onto my scope and took this 120 sec exposure.
  2. Just checked my location and it was down as:- w002degrees 14'111.8". oops added to many one's there. I've rechecked my gps device and reset the location pressed ok and this it closed down, no error message so looks like this was the problem. I'm now going back to the scope and it with the scope connected.
  3. com 7 I'm using Device manager shows that one to use and it does show found.
  4. when I set up my eqascom then click on the ok bar I get a message saying eqmod error parameter. Is there anything I can do to stop this message from coming up again?
  5. Saying that last night when I was checking my mounts motor I had noticed that one of the plugs had come undone so I had to plug it back in
  6. The one I'm using at the moment is :-https://www.firstlightoptics.com/astronomy-cables-leads-accessories/lynx-astro-ftdi-eqdir-usb-adapter-for-sky-watcher-eq5-pro-heq5-syntrek-pro-az-eq5-gt-az-eq6-gt-and-eq8-mounts.html
  7. Had problems with my new laptop (windows 10 ) talking to my mount. had install/uninstall then reinstall the driver to get it working. Now 2 weeks later its doing it again. Thinking of down loading windows 7 pro and giving that a try.
  8. Took these to make up for the lack of stargazing that we had the weekend.
  9. Just a few of the weekends photos
  10. Will you be at the W.A.S. main meeting next Thursday? I'll give you the money then.
  11. Last year we had lanyards with name badges. Are doing the same this year? If so can we bring the lanyard that we used last year to be used with this years badges.
  12. Looking forward to it. Lets hope I can get my new laptop talking to the mount in time.
