I thought it might be time to move on from my trusty Phillips webcam to a ZWO ASI120MC-S. Unfortunately I've been largely restricted to short observing sessions this summer, but recently I finally dropped the ZWO into my ED80 on a manual alt-az mount and winged it with the settings. Can't wait to try it with my mak
  3. +1 for the Baader zoom. I acquired mine a few months ago and it’s excellent for grab and go sessions when I don’t want to carry a case of eyepieces around. It was worth saving up for

I’ve had a good trawl looking for settings to to get me started, but would appreciate it if anyone had settings which had worked for them, that they would be willing to share.
