    Did you see my post?
  2. Dss problems

    How many stars are you registering in the first stage?
  3. Thanks Vlaiv. I guess rotation will be limited anyway due to the shape of the Canon camera, and position of guide camera will hit the body of the Canon.
  4. What to spend £130 Amazon voucher on?

    Didnt spend the voucher yet, came across this which fits my requirements and leaves me a couple of bob left over! https://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/language/en/info/p2722_TS-Optics-Off-Axis-Guider-for-Canon-EOS-cameras---replaces-the-T-ring.html
  5. Looks like this is the answer, and on discount too?! https://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/language/en/info/p2722_TS-Optics-Off-Axis-Guider-for-Canon-EOS-cameras---replaces-the-T-ring.html
  6. Thank-you. Looks spot on.
  7. Me? I've had this for a year gathering dust in a dob mount! Time to get finger out and convert to EQ mounted and start taking some images! My plan was to use a finder guider, but I think the FL will be too short.
  8. I have a Baader MPCC (bought around 2010), and I was thinking of using this, along with an OAG, on a 305mm F4/9 reflector. Has anyone any ideas how to go about this. The MPCC slides into the 2" focuser, so the only way I see to attach the OAG is between the camera and MPCC, and this wont work because the spacing is already correct at 55mm. Hopefully someone can help me out!
  9. For a Bhatinov mask, needs to hang over the top!
  10. Could anyone measure or know the OD of the opening of the SW 12" scope (pictured below). I need the dimensions before I get home, to get a DXF file drawn up. https://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/skywatcher-explorer-300pds-optical-tube-assembly.html

    Wow WEE! what an image. No denying this type of imaging is inspirational stuff for all us amateurs!

    But remember none of this is real astronomy

    Nice collection of MW and other images
  14. What to get water jet cut or laser engraved/cut?

    Cheers! I definitely need a second mask of my other ED80, and i will cut a big one for my 300pds. I’m heading down this Wed so need to find the STL files and decide what I need before them. Thanks for your input and advice regarding the differences
  15. Yes I think it’s very good. Thanks for sharing.
