  1. Hi All.

    I'm trying to work out if my QHY5L-II Colour  will make a better guide cam than my currnet guide cam the original QHY5 (older shape black) or do I need to purchase a new mono for guiding?

    If anyone can throw any light on this it would be much appriciated (sorry)


  2. 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?

     


  3. Check in the 'device manager' you will find it in 'control panel' system. With the adaptor plugging in look for the entry in the list. As Spikey has stated it will be called 'prolific' if you see this in the device manager check there is no issue with it. If all is well in the device manager go to the eqascom telescope control panel>configure and hit the search button this will scan all com channels for a connected device.

    Here is my Celestron C8 XLT  for sale, as I have upgraded to a C11.

    I have used this for the last 4 years, It has a Telrad adaptor affixed to the Tube and a second Vixen style dovetail bar. Which I use for my ST80 guide scope.

    I bought the scope with these modifications already in place I have never used the Telrad adaptor so cannot attest to its condition but the second vixen dovetail I have used to attach a ST80 OTA as a guide scope. this has always been sturdy with no issues. I used ADM Clamps.

    I have posted a few more bits and bobs I am also selling so please have a look as there is a dew shield and Bahtinov mask which fit this OTA.

    There are the usual marks on the dovetail bar used to mount the scope and the odd small scratch/chip here and there as you would expect but all the important stuff still works really well.

    I am looking for £450.00 Any questions please ask. I would prefer collection but I can post at buyers expense.

    Thanks.20171029_150954.thumb.jpg.bf68285d31bd2395bda2507d1a8b3c76.jpg

    Hi I will find out this evening and post a link here if they provide drivers for windows 10

    Just plugged it into a Windows 10 PC and the camera installed using Microsoft LifeCam studio driver, no download needed. The label on the camera cable states Microsoft LifeCam studio.

    hi there.  Could you possibly give a little details regarding spec for the Microsoft Lifecam please. I assume the picture with the altair filter is what you're selling?

    Will it work on a Windows 10 machine?

    Thanks
