  4. Hi Everyone, I have a losmandy G11 with gemini system, but its the older version, and doesn't have a USB on its panel. However I have this (see pics) im pretty sure it was from when I brought the mount second hand a few yrs ago from a fellow member (cant remember name...ect), in a nutshell, can someone tell me what its used for? Im guessing its to connect the mount to the computer, and maybe running software like Cartes du-ciel?? Also can it be used for updating the firmware...ect……….if someone can give me an idea of its uses it would be much appreciated.

  6. You need a 2 inch adapter piece that screws into the body of your 450D, I will post a link to what I recon you need. The coma corrector goes into the 2 inch focuser on your scope then the 2 inch adapter goes into that. Hopefully you should be able to reach focus. Dependant on the scope you may not need a coma corrector, especially if you crop the pic post processing.

  8. CGLX Is a very good price, but how does it compare to the rest, its payload is lower in comparision. Tempting but a worry it wont be enough, im gona guide off axis, and would alos need to add weight to the underside to compensate the balance in DEC as the orange dovetail will defo be right at the end of the saddle clamp...…..
  9. Whats best ioptron or skywatcher, I know theres a price difference, but im guessing the ioptron is better, any thoughts? Its to image throught a Celestron C11 Edge with focal reducer...…..
  10. Hi James...….yes mate just makes it easier to remove the end cap. Just a pin to grab onto...…..
