  2. For sale, a skywatcher MN190, Mak-newt astrograph. Comes with a lakeside motor focuser , cables and hand controller, essential for imaging. This scope is perfect for imaging with, at f5.3, and nice round stars right up to the edge of the frame/image unlike normal Newtonians, coma free. Comes also with the tube rings, losmandy dovetail plate, and finder scope. Nice clean optics, however there are a few scratches on the optical tube (see pics), which is fairly typical due to its use. Ive included a few pics as well that ive taken through it. collection only please. Price £600

  11. Hi Olly, not sure of its RMS, I also know someone that has some luck with the same set up. I image off axis anyway so that's ok. Ive recently upgraded to a moonlight focuser (more weight all at the eyepiece end) this includes a filter wheel, OAG, Lodestar x2, Atik 314 mono, ect…...another big issue is balance in DEC, im right at the end of the dovetail plate almost, that's without the focal reducer, meaning id have to add even more weight nearer the corrector plate area to balance it. I recon its pushing it somewhat...……….
  12. Looking to upgrade my mount in the near future, and im thinking between these to, its for imaging through a Celestron C11 Edge HD with focal reducer. I currently have a Losmandy G11, which im fairly certain will be an issue when it comes to payload...……..
  13. Field comparison between my William optics zenithstar 70ED...……….and my MN190 (focal length 1000mm)
  14. Hi again so heres a pic taken the other night of the Cresent nebula NGC 6888, in h-alpha, through the Ascent 102ED, Varying exposures (16 in total from 2-8 mins) as I was hampered with fine layered cloud, which also affected the image. Its uncropped, to show the results with the field flattener I also got with it, and used. Camera was an Atik 314 mono, 7nm h-alpha filter. Guiding was off axis. Considering the focus was a bit of a rush, and being the first time off using the scope, theres room for improvement im sure.
