    Reasonable price?

    The RCX as said was touted as a magic imaging scope but turned out most owners needed to be magicians to get them to work, I'd steer well clear of them. When my 10" was on a tripod in alt/az mode the GoTo was always spot on, not so good on a wedge, the alt/az fork is a joy for visual use. Dave
  8. Hi and welcome to SGL. Do you have any eyepieces at all ? Dave

    So, what else?

    Meade giant field tripods come up occasionally on AB&S, I bought one for the 10Micron for £400.00 It will be a bit hard lifting a 12" on and off so it would need to be permanently mounted, have you considered a 10", I'd prefer a 10" ACF over a 12" LX, it would also be just about liftable by one person and fit on an ordinary Meade tripod.

    How to determine best exposure and ISO

    Have you thought of using colour slide film and developing it yourself ? Assuming the processing kit is still available, it's what I used to do before digital. Dave
  11. That's weird, if you click on the MPC list of observable comets it should automatically log onto the MPC site and gets a list. Dave

  14. Yep missed a bit, have edited original in red. Just tried it and it worked OK. Dave
  15. May have missed a step, will check, knew I shouldn't have done it from memory at my age Dave
