    OSB or Ply ?

    I’ve removed my input from this thread purely due to lack of acknowledgement.
  5. Thanks William for that, it makes the opinions more valid to base my choice, for when I buy one of these cameras
  6. I started off with a seben scope. Cost me £52. It got me hooked when I was able to see Saturn and image it with a mobile phone back in 2005. I moved on since then but i definitely wouldn’t say it was a waste of money in the grand scheme of things.
  7. Richard seems to talking from experience. How many of these cameras have you owned and used @LightBucket ??

    May 23, 2018: 31-pane, 87 Mpixel Lunar Mosaic

    Very nice, lovely resolution.
  9. Sounds like you have a good grounding on the subject. A decent S/H SW mount would be a good investment. I find you can pick up telescopes themselve cheap enough second hand, but it's important to get a really good mount to put them on. A possible suggestion would be to buy an HEQ5 or EQ6 (slightly over budget) and mount the Polaris 130 scope you already have.
  10. What mount do you current have to put the telescope on?

    Jupiter 5/22 rgb

    Very very nice.

    Horizontal banding on Canon 550d

    The depth of knowledge of you guys is immense, never fails to impress me the little tips and tricks you know. I've been fortunate, and have never seen any banding from any of my Canons.

    Jupiter from last night (21st May)

    Very nice Tim. I'm debating whether to stay up later and try Jupiter again.
  14. If this isnt a testiment to the application of DLSRs in AP, I dont know what is. Simply stunning.
