  1. Hi A_D05, I too have a S.W. 80ED with HEQ 5PRO mount and https://www.firstlightoptics.com/guide-scopes/skywatcher-startravel-80-ota.html piggy backed on my scope with a touptek guide cam and PHD2 autoguiding software with little or no problems.
  2. Check the power requirement for each item that you have. (my heq5 mount draws max 2amps , dew heater 5 amps camera 1.5 amps that's 6.5amps) yours may differ a little but check anyway. 6.5 amps well within the specs that you stated.
  3. That's what I do, RCD inside weather prove box outside next to my table that has a large box on its side for the laptop to keep dry.
  4. I'll be happy just to sit back on my chair and listen to the local owls making their presence known.
  5. Partly cloudy and very windy up here in west Malvern.
  6. When I use apt to my imaging lately I select a star say denib to focus on the lomicron filter bin 2x2 30secs and all I get is white screen. So Itry bin 1x1 and still get a white or black screen no sign of stars on witch to focus on. Am I missing something, any pointers will a big help.
  7. Started with sgpro but after trying apt I found that I get on with apt better
  8. Thanks Miguel1983 for the advice. I was looking at something like the RSP-320-13.v that you now got.
  9. What power supply do most imagers use to power their rigs. Mines just packed up on me.
  10. APT for me. Found it better than SGPRO, I can set APT screen colour to red for night time imaging where as SGPRO you can't.
  11. Timer now set to put this on
  12. That's what I was thinking for I was a few fun and games trying to get my head around this new set up
  13. my first attempt at m3 using astro photography tool, Astro pixel processor then finished of in photoshop.
  14. First attempt at deep sky work
