  1. Thank you very much for all those great answers! I won't get a wedge at the moment since I will move back further down next month, but I will try to lift the N leg as you mentioned. / Andreas
  2. But wouldn't that affect the overall inclination of the mount? At which latitude did you try this by the way? Cause my mount does not seem to go further than 65 degrees even without bolts attached. That looks like a good solution to the problem. However, I won't stay this far up in the country for too long, so it would be a bit overkill to buy the Wedge at the moment.
  3. And obviously, I meant latitude instead of altitude...
  4. Evening stargazers, At the moment, I am located a significantly higher altitude than normal and discovered some problems with the polar alignment for my EQ6. The most obvious problem is that one of the alignment screws is way too short to compensate for my current latitude of ~ 68. "Alright then... I'll just order a longer screw", I thought until I noticed the fact that it is not possible to reach further than ~ 65, even when the screws are not attached. Why is this? The scale on the mount reaches up to 90, which is quite far from 65. Is it possible make the polar axis go further or is it just a limitation of the mount? // Andreas
  5. Thank you very much everybody!

    Alright, I'll keep that in mind!

    Thanks! I mean, it looks more like a cloud than a flat disc in my opinion. // Andreas
  8. Hey! This is my first finished moon mosaic, and I'm quite happy with the results, except for the oversaturation at some places as well as the blurry upper middle sections. I'm not sure what caused the blurriness, and I've tried to restack those sections a couple of times without any further success. This is not the fullres image by the way. // Andreas

    After a couple of nights of clouds, frustration, I finally got a decent pic of M31 However, I think it looks a bit smeared after the image-processing in photoshop. Soo..maybe someone got any suggestions about how to make it better? // Andreas

    Hey John and welcome to SGL !
  13. Alright, but would you clean it our leave it as it is? And if you would clean it, what sort of cleaning solution would you use? Andreas
