  1. Hi Alan, Yes sir. Nikon D7500 with a Samyang 14mm at 2.8. The trails (the main pic) are approx 90mins of 20sec exposures at ISO 800. Stitched together in Star Trails software but no editing. The single of the Milky-way in same set up but at ISO 1600 form 15secs to minimise drag. I had the ED80 and HEQ5 parked in the shed because I thought the weather wouldn't be great, but low and behold!
  2. Anyone had any experience with the 8” or 6” iOptron RC scopes.
  3. Hi folks, item sold! went within 10mins!
  4. Only used on two occasions. Included all cables. Converter and original packaging. £60 including P&P to anywhere in UK or ROI
  5. Hi Grant, that’s it! Perfect mate and thank you. Just ordered from FLO. Many thanks Rick
  6. That’s a confirmed on the Baader that I have. Unfortunately it doesn’t unscrew and is fixed. If anyone can recommend an adapter then that will be great. Otherwise I’ll send it back and start again!
  7. Hi folks, yes that’s right, the Baader draw tube is a fixed one piece set up and doesn’t unscrew. Perhaps I’ll send it back to FLO as it may not be compatible.

  9. Hi, I have just purchased the SW 0.85 Focal Reducer for ED80. I’m a bit confused about how to set it up/connect to my equipment. I have an M42 adapter for my D7500 but now realise I require an M48. But how do I fit to my focuser tube? Do I need anything else? I’ve attached a pic of my set up.
  10. Thanks folks, and the weather in Wales has been amazing.
  11. M13. Single 2min exposure ISO400. D7500 with IDAS D2 Light Pollution Suppression Filter. ED80 Pro on an HEQ5, Guided using PH2 and ASI120MM mini. No post processing. As raw as Wales beating Ireland during the Six Nations!
