  1. Hi, A friend's daughter has asked them for a telescope for Christmas, so I was wondering if anyone has one of these they'd like to sell? Thanks
  2. The ZWO ASI071 and QHY168C use the same APS-C sensor (same size as your Canon) and get good reviews. I have the QHY and love it. They're above your budget at about £1450, but you can get them used for about £900.
  3. Let me know if you are thinking of selling
  4. Looks great! I've got the same on order from FLO, looking forward to seeing your results.
  5. ALL ITEMS SOLD. I've decided to finally go for a bigger sensor, so I am selling my trusty Atik One 9.0, filters and tilt adjustor. All were purchased new by me. Images at the end of the post. First off is the Atik One 9.0 kit, which includes the Atik One 9.0 (which contains a 5 position internal filter wheel for 1.25" filters), Atik GP guider/planetary CCD, off-axis guider, faceplate so you can use the CCD without the OAG, 2" nosepiece, 1.25" nosepiece, and filter changer tool. The Atik One 9.0 has a very senstive 9MP Sony sensor. This has been an amazing piece of kit and has

    Thanks! Oh interesting, I was using the powermate after the diagonal. Is it better to position it before the diagonal?

    Nice images! Pete, what capture settings do you use when using the powermate? What exposure length do you aim for? I can't find any info into whether it's better to lower the exposure time and increase gain, or increase exposure time and decrease gain. Chris
  8. Great, thanks for the replies. Good to know that's just how it works and I need to get better at tuning!
  9. Hiya, I recently bought a second-hand Lunt LS50THa B600PT to image with an ASI178MM, and I'm struggling getting the whole disc to show detail at the same time. I've not used a pressure tuner before, so I'm not sure if this is normal or not. I made a couple videos to show what I mean. In the first video I centered the sun in the frame and tune from all the way out to all the way in, and back out again (sorry for the shake!). In the second video I tuned for the sun in the center of the frame and then move the sun around the frame. Would you mind having a look? First video:
  10. Few bits for sale, all only used a couple of times and pretty much mint condition: - Skywatcher 116mm tube rings (white) - £16 - Skywatcher 140mm tube rings (black) - £16 - Geoptik EOS adaptor - £70 - ADM vixen dovetail (11 inch) - £40
  11. Ello! It's been a while since I posted. I haven't been out much lately as I moved in to a flat. Not sure what's going on with the brightness though. The exported image looks brighter when exported than it does in PixInsight, so had to give a few tweeks so it looks ok when exported. Anyway, haven't imaged the Soul by itself before, so thought I'd give it a go. 2 panels, roughly 5 hours each.
