  1. Hi All. Would using a CLS filter with IR block on un-modified EOS have a un-desirable effect?
  2. Thanks Dave, i'm still at odd's as to the performance of the Celestron SCT LPF I may have to try it and see!
  3. I'm looking at getting one of these Astronomik CLS EOS Clip filter or Celestron SCT LPF for my C8 & Canon EOS 1000d, Which one would be better of do they perform the same? Also can the Celestron filter be used in conjunction with a Celestron F6.3 Focal reducer? Many thanks.
  4. Thanks have ordered one now.
  5. Hi All. I have recently acquired a Synscan handset and need to connect it to my EQ6 mount which has been upgraded to GOTO. The mount has a DB9 female socket on t and the handset has what looks like a RJ45 and RJ11 ports. I assume that its the RJ11 port I need to connect to. Where can I get a cable for this or is there a Wiring diagram so I can make one. Many thanks.
  6. Thank you, that's much better
  7. Hi all, Im using CDC and when I select 'star common name' and put in say Polaris when the scope slews to the object on the chart it calls Polaris by this name 'Alp Umi' What does this mean and can I set the software to state the 'common name' on the chart also? Many Thanks.

    Watts per inch?

    I did think about LED's but measuring with a volt meter I know that just past half way round with the control knob gives half power so quite easy to know where im at with power setting. Whole build cost less than £20.00 so happy with that. (Thanks IanL **proto star in previous post)

  15. All depends on what they want to do, I started out with a £40.00 second hand Tasco reflector. It was awful, but I saw Jupiter through that scope for the first time and I was bitten. I would start out with a 114 - 130 mm reflector on a budget Equatorial mount. I have seen second hand Skywatcher 130mm on EQ2 mounts for less than £100.00 on Astro buy and sell. Start at the bottom and work your way up learning as you go.

    Watts per inch?

    Sorry I should of said it was a 4 way splitter as sold by modern astronomy. I was hoping just to put one, in line dimmer to adjust the power going in because at the moment its full or nothing. Many thanks for the info i'll go through it and see what I want to do is possible.
  17. Hi all. How many Watts are drawn per inch of dew heater? I'm trying to find an in-line dimmer unit for my non adjustable dew heater controller, any help much appreciated.
