  11. I agree the QHY8L would be a good fit and thank you for all your input. I have had to do a bit of research to comprenhend it. but it has been invaluble.
  12. Hi All. Im looking at getting a CCD camera, OSC/used, I have about £700.00 budget. Im am wanting to target mainly galaxies. I know mono is more sensitve and I will one day go this route when I can have a perminent OBSY. I will be using a C11 with a F6.3 Reducer on EQ6 Pro. Is there any other kit I would need with the CCD filters/Etc If it was your £££ what would you put it on?
