  1. Thank you and yes I'm very lucky it's a beauty but it's just not getting used.
  2. The best camera for live video astronomy bar none! The software is the magic ingredient and there really is nothing else that comes close. I've had a lot of fun with this camera just check out some of my broadcasts below:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6ObJzvIP5Qhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=508gnnlOGtgNow needs a new home as I simply have no time to use it anymore. In perfect condition.Many thanks
  3. One of the best telescopes I've ever owned and sad to sell it but I simply have no time for this hobby right now. The scope is in perfect working order and very good condition. The price includes the DIY trolley as seen in the image. This allows me to keep the scope set up under cover in my garage which I then wheel out as and when. Not as convenient as a dome/roll off but certainly helps. I am also selling everything shown on the scope which I'll list separately but if you are interested in the complete set up please let me know ASAP as I'll be listing individually. Please see link to one of
  4. This is a very reluctant sale of the finest scope I've ever owned! Unfortunately due to time constraints I no longer find time for my hobby and as such I have decided to sell this and all my other astro kit. The telescope is in excellent condition and is ready to go to a good home. Any questions please let me know. Thanks
  5. Hi Rob, Yes thanks for joining in last night especially as you were in sick in bed! Shame you missed the earlier part but as always with broadcasting it's always short notice. I was working with at F5 last night and yes the CPC1100. Great little scope really with spot on Goto and tracking. Hope you're feeling better Rob
  6. Hello All, It's been a while since I've had any time for astronomy (or any other hobby for that matter) but last night I finally blew the cobwebs off my astro kit! Initially I only intended a light jog to loosen up but ended up doing a marathon! Anyway, as always I took a screen grab for each target which shows the software. On that note, it' important to point out that while some show many stacks this does not mean it took that long to get the image you see. I generally take a screen grab just before moving off to the next target but must remember to grab the image sooner the
  7. Great broadcast Carl and the views was spot on! Dust bunny free and perfect focus so well done. Sorry I could not stay the distance but work was manic today. I'll add the recording to the iPlayer on VAL so anyone who missed it can have a butchers.
  8. Love it, nothing wrong with this video at all!
  9. Mercury Transit Live right now on Channel Carlscope! Pop in and say hello if you can. http://www.videoastronomylive.co.uk/#!carlscope/c19ti Cheers Karl
  10. Thanks Noah, My Goto with Starsense is actually pretty good the problem I had was when linked to Stellarium the two were not quite synced. However, I how now sussed that and I'm also using the Stellarium scope which gives me the directional keys. Now I have a new sue though I'm hoping you might know about. The other night I was right next to my intended target and pressed the normal goto through Stellarium but rather than the scope going left a tad to the target the scope decided to go in the opposite direction and do almost a 360 to get on the target!! I then used Stellarium scope to
  11. Thanks guys, lots of great information very much appreciated. I do want PC control preferably as I like to broadcast my views live and I want to incorporate Stellarium into the show so I'll try that avenue first but wifi might also be something to look at. Anyway lots to digest so thank you both very much. Regards Karl
  12. Thanks Doug, This might be the answer as I'm not getting anywhere with info on the Starsense. I was thinking of selling it and going back to the 3 star alignment routine as at least then I could use the Nexremote but I'll now take a look at the Skyportal app so thank you. Best wishes Karl
  13. Hello All, Firstly, apologies if this is not in the right place but I've tried software and cameras and have not had much luck... Does anyone here use the Celestron Starsense camera and use a PC to control your setup? I am currently burning brain-cells with frustration trying to work out how to do this. Basically, before I could use Nexremote but this does not work with Starsense. I can (I think) use Stellarium but this only works for Goto operation and does not have the option to nudge up/down left/right. This is no good if I need to centre the target when slightly off. I have
