  1. cool cool, well i am not sure of the current status of the order but i like those rings Steve ally
  2. We have asked OO as we are getting it from them well hopefully Mick that could be a winner cheers mate!
  3. tried but this is now the mounting of the OTA to the mounting plate? tube rings or long dovetail bar but i have not seen a product that would do?
  4. well that looks like the solution so far but if you look at the MAX mount they have a silver dovetail plate with sides that hold the OTA where the fork mount would hold it??? I really was just wondering if anyone has seen or use something like this? ally

    Hi from Stirling

    Welcome, JOIN YOUR LOCAL ASTRONOMY CLUB!! Stirling Astronomical Society they are very good, formal to a point, but i have been to one or two of their meetings and they have some excellent members. They will be more than able to point you towards a good telescope and allow you to sample some before you buy. plus the observatory is worth a visit. Alasdair
  9. Maths Yeah ....... I agree with Rob, darks might be over kill for 30second frames, Bias frames will sort out most of that noise. flats ...... do i really want to step into that again? well as a rule of thumb they are hard to understand. if done wrong make an image worse. for long exposures flats are the only way to remove the bulk of the noise. take as many Bias as you do Flats, like so many things in astronomy, more is better. i do try but usually can't be bothered taking more than 30 or 40 flats However if i think the data is really good then i would make the effort alasdair
