  1. Hi.I had one nexstar 8se before the upgrade to the HEQ5 pro and even if the equal mount is a better one,its heavy...I found the nexstar mount accurate,light and very easy to setup and managed the C8 very well

    My astrostuff allong the times
  3. HI .I know the secondary housing is on place and you can tell wich side is.My question is if if you have this black OTAs and if you have,wich side the V points.Thanks
  4. Indeed i saw a good nunber of fotos with the V pointing to the sky and others pointing to the primary mirror.MIne points to the primary mirror but i would like to know if anyone has this particular black type of C8 (photto) and if the V on theyrs point to the primary too.The in -out orientation is more confusing...i can tell you ive made the experience and reversed the corrector and it permormed flaulessly giving tack sharp jupiters and beeing even the best scope on the star party,so to mi its a bit confusing this in out orientation thing
  5. Hi.I have a OTA sn S16449 and it has this etched marks on the sides of the corrector plate.Does it tell the in-out orientation?If someone has one of this black XLT otas,the point of the V shaped arrow point to the primary or out? THanks in advance
  6. Indeed.Ive managed to get the camera to work and have made a test vid and the image is superb,outstanding indeed.Im very,very happy.This whole set was a gift from mi friend Paulo Mesquita and it come with easycap.co.uk . Easycap has a great software and woks well.In terms of image,this camera is in a league completely diferent of the Phillips spc900.I heve great hopes for planetary image for this camera.I will use it ha a all sky camera with fish eye lens too.
  7. Hi.Just bpougth a Opticstar CCD cam with Easycap video capture and would like to have your opinion about this cam.How it compares with SPC900 for planetary and how easy is to work with him.Im goung to use this cam with my C8 & HEQ5 Synscan. Thanks Carlos
  8. Beautifull C9.25...a dream scope indded...The CPC line is simply amazing.All of them are great!!
  9. Hi.The CPC11 is indeed a great scope and a scope for a lifetime.If ive the money i dont even think twice.For DSO the C11 is a real killer and is a stunning planet performer...This is mi dream scope
  10. So the CSL is actually more versatile... If one has an IR cut filter on the side... thanks for the input. cheers.
  11. Hi astrofriends.I think we all can say its a pride and joy to have an OO scope.Wish i had a Portuguese company making such wonderful machines,i tell you...I think too its a bit unfair,everytime a OO discution pops out,always someone will say how poor the hardware is or some kind of problem.What i see its a company with skills to do any type of scope we want with a degree of optic precision few can match,My dream dob is the Orion Optics 14" F4.5 1/10 wave and they a r e b e a u t i f u l l !!! Wen i saw a 14" 1/4 wave sold here for 850 pounds,my heart almost stopped...You folks should be p
  12. THis must be one of the most beautifull and exquisiste planetary newtons ive saw.Believe it or not,another day i was talking to a friend of mine of doing just a project like this.Finding a OTA and getting the 150mm ultra grade Orion Optics set,a good focuser and making the ultimate planetary newton.The mirror cell is so gorgeous... Congrats mate,you have mounted a scope that is a work of art
  13. Meade 4000 super plossl.They are very good and heap.Im very happy with them
  14. Hi Tim.Yes,the answer is yes,it help allot and the diference is HUGE.Even at home wen defocusing the image i can see the star test hugelly improved with clean airy disc without thermal issues.A simple thing wich can by of great help and its simple to do is to remove the screws you dont use and aply a filter in each.THis can be of great help too and i have in place this sistem too...Every bit helps
  15. Hi astrofolks.You can see the full article here Telescope Reviews: Mi C8 has rear vents now ! .A great and easy to do mod if you dont worry about digging holes on the OTA :D. Some pics of the mod
