  1. Thanks, I think I’ve resolved the issue, I pulled the RA motor down a little under video guidance of Lucas Mesu.
  2. I brought a 14 inch ODK last year and the mirrors were very good. I know the company had issues before many years ago but all has changed.
  3. Hi all I purchased a Mesu mrk2 last year but barely used it. When it has been operating it has been experiencing random RA drifts. when that happens then it’s pretty much KO for the night unless you restart it all up. at times the mount acts perfectly and guides under 0.70 RMS The drift usually occurs around the eAST part of the sky WEST ( eg M82 around 2200 hours, to give you a idea where I am pointing if In the Northenhemp) the sitech software reports it is “Tracking” no error shown in voyager software I am using a 14 inch ODK with the usual setup of camera
  4. My telescope is out by 10mm from its original recorded 2854mm but I am not fussed!! I think anything over 50mm + or - you could be running into issues.
  5. Nice. I recently had a 70kg payload on it and tracked really well at 2500mm focal
  6. Decent yeah he came to pick that one up from me. I only needed four in the end
  7. Nice one Sam, did you get a counterweight with it?
  8. Have you tried Version 95G
  9. I haven’t experienced that as of yet! Did you download the latest Sitech software. .95 G ( something like that )
  10. Worth a read http://www.loptics.com/articles/starshape/starshape.html
  11. Hi from experience when collimating my GSO 14 inch RC (Truss) design I’ve used the Tak collimator / Howie collimator (green) and the new R.E.E.E.G.O collimator All providing slightly different results... question is which one do you follow!!! one reason was the focuser end, I have three grub screws with a copper compression ring, Good way to test the howie is, insert the laser into the focuser, slightly tighten making sure it’s plush then rotate the howie, whilst observing the laser dot, if the laser dot moves lot ( up down etc ) then it’s not collimated Cor
  12. THat is true but when I take my flats I use a EL panel. You can dim the brightness. I aim for around 23000adu and dim it enough so the exposure times are over 2 seconds my lumance is 1.6 seconds and you can see the shutter in the bottom right corner but that doesn't effect the overall image as you can see in the double cluster as for planetary work I personally wouldn't use it but go for something like those celestron Skyris
  13. Do it do it! I have no problems with it what so ever. Last night the obs was showing 24c, had the ccd cooled to -20 in mintes with a steady power of 32% I use 36mm filters but 1.25 can cover it too
  14. Hey Chris Yes very happy with the baby Q ( I look to see how it performs under good skies and with narrowband. Really nicely built and also really light..
  15. find the gorgeous Double Cluster in the constellation Perseus. It’s a wonderful sight to see on winter evenings, here in the Northern Hemisphere. The Double Cluster consists of two open stars clusters, known as “H” and “Chi” Persei (also called NGC 884 and 869). This is my first light using the Takahashi FSQ85 telescope Captured from London on 13/09/2016 ( poor weather conditions ) Data Takahashi fsq85 QHY9s CCD Ioptron CEM60 LRGB 2 x 300 seconds filter Unguided Higher Res
