  1. Thanks for all your replies & advice, it is most appreciated and confirms my thoughts. Its not a lot of money £140-150 but it it enough to not want to lose it for either party. I thought my friend (he has a nervous disposition) hence why i am posting, had been more than fair but just wanted to check that i was not in cloud cuckoo land. I agree with john and think 14 days return sounds the way to go although i will be opening it when it gets back to check the board over just in case its messed with as i am a little worried as to why he will not return the item before he gets a refund. the
  2. A friend of mine recently sold a atik filter wheel on astro buy sell the wheel was in full working order with no problems whatsoever & was paid via the paypal gift function. He sold the wheel with no problems at all until he got an email saying it had no drivers. My friend then sent the link to the drivers on the atik site to him and thought no more of it. It now seems the wheel no longer works (strange that) several emails later and he is now being threatened by the buyer with all sorts of actions etc etc in a non too polite manner! my friend has explained that he will be out of the coun
  3. If you come over to our pitch you will most likely get assimilated
  4. thanks for that martin, i will have a play with binning pete I have attached a pictured from the atik 4000 taken during last summer just to show how versatile the chip is even at this short focal length Borg 60ED 4x 30min subs f3.8 @224mm focal length baader 1.25mm 7nm ha filter, you will get some vignetting but nothing flats wont sort
  5. I have both sensors all be it in different cameras FLI 8300 Atik 4000 although the 8300 chip is more sensitive in the ha region it does have limitations due to its small pixel size. These are great on my borg's where i am imaging at 400mm & 198mm but not so good on my vc200L where i image at 1280mm & 1800mm. i have used the 8300 with the vc200L @ 1280mm but only on very steady nights as the sub arc sec guiding can be tough & to get it any where near easy you have to bin it quite aggressively to sum it up i love the 8300 chip and its great value for money & use this for narrow
  6. I have just checked and we are at pitch 316 on the red field so look forward to meeting some fellow members Your right Daz it is a shame that they clash but the moon tends to win out on these things, unless you have a 4 season winter sleeping bag that is
  7. Me, moocher, Eddie & david61 will be in the red field by millionaires row this spring and i can't remember which field in the autumn but its the one way over the back that had the toilet block light problems last year. If they have that sorted it should be a great pitch with very low horizons all around look forward to meeting some of the sgl members there, it seems strange to me to have another star party the same week as another major star party, as we have to few in this country already and i would have liked to attended both tbh
  8. Cables, Leads and Controllers - HitecAstro EQDIR adapter This may do the trick
  9. ben ask alan as he is using mine on another note can you pm me your email address for paypal as i have some dosh to send you mate
  10. will a low profile focuser not give you enough infocus ? if my memory serves me well the stock focuser is quite a tall beast and i think this will give you a lot more in focus & save you having to move the mirror
  11. try John at astrodevelopments as i am sure he can make a set up for you if that is what it ends up being
  12. Looks good to me Mine arrives next week! David from hitec astro is making me a special with a built in 5 port usb hub and eq mod so i can put the hub on the top of my setup and then all i have is 1x power cable & 1x usb. All being well this should sort out my cable jungle. I will post some pictures when i get it set up as i think its defiantly the way forward steve
  13. I like new technology and although it can have teething problems these are sorted within the 1st few consumer glitches. To this effect, I took a risk in September and sold my much loved ap1200, even though it was by far and away the best mount i have ever owned, it is still based on old technology, albeit very robust well machined old technology I have replaced my ap with a chronos hd 32 which should arrive sometime in march and i am quite looking forward to being a guinea pig for new technology , although i must admit its a big leap going from a proven Thoroughbred to the new fastest colt o
