  1. Anyone got any experience of using a Zwo Asi174mc they would care to share ? Thinking of buying one for a bit of EAA/VA and beginners imaging and anything else it might do. Thanks.
  2. Does anyone have any experience of using a ZWO Asi174mc for Va/Eaa or any other uses that they would care to share with me?
  3. There are some useful tools available for free on the FLO website https://astronomy.tools/ specifically “CCD calculators” and “CCD suitability “ where you can input your existing equipment and add new equipment you are thinking of buying to see what you would get from the different combinations.
  4. I just line up the front tripod leg with polaris by eye and use a built in level bubble then use azimuth adjusters to align the head more accurately and get perfectly usable alignment for visual use
  5. Hello and a very warm welcome to the universe from Somerset!
  6. Have just found a small hole in the focuser body where a tiny grub screw should be like on the other side! I believe this explains my floppy focuser problem but what to do about it?
  7. Can anyone help? My Baader 2" SCT Crayford has gone floppy! What I mean is the focusing knobs and spindle seem to have lost contact with the focusing tube and spin freely while the movable focus tube wobbles around disconnected! Any ideas? Thanks on advance, Pete AKA Budfalo Bill.
  8. Got to use my new Steeltrack focuser and Hyperion zoom and took a look at the moon and the Orion nebula tonight ! WOW!!

      I was lucky enough to meet Frank Close and he's a great scientist and communicator. I'll be getting a copy of this book too and thanks for the heads up.
