  2. Would the Opticstar PL 130m be worthwhile or should I hold out for a QHY5?

  8. Good guide camera for about £100 does it exist? advise welcome. Im using a ST80 as a guide scope. I have been advised not to use webcams due to sensitivity is this correct? Many thanks.

  13. Hi All. Im getting fuzzy photos after I have stacked in autostakkert. No amount of Photoshop can sharpen the fuzziness out! Im using 3 x Barlow and taking a lot of time with focusing. I know 'seeing has a lot to do with it but its happening all too often. This does not happen as much when recording video in lower resolutions eg 640- 480. I try and use higher res when recording video 1080 -720. I'm using 800 frames and MJPEG and YUY2 codecs. Camera is Microsoft Lifecam.
  14. These are a couple of pics I took with lifecam webcam & C8 XLT 2 x barlow. the bigger image was taken in a higher resolution. 1080 - 720 the first 640 - 480. there is more detail and a lot less fuzziness using the smaller res. can anyone explain? Great first picture very good.
  15. I have been using the AZ GOTO with a Celestron C6 xlt OTA which manfacturer says is 4,54Kg. As long as the SCT is balanced then the mount copes fine. Tracking was very good using with webcam. In fact even though its early days the tracking on this setup is better than the dual motor drive on my EQ6!
