  1. As long as the voltage, amps and polarity of the charger are the same it will work. Not sure what end the skywatchers use though.
  2. The CLS clip filter is a much better, although more expensive, option. Its simple to fit and gives excellent results.
  3. set the canon 450d imaging for 4 hours with the dust cap on scope, left it on after doing some darks!!!!!!
  4. Amazing image, you are very lucky to get such great views of this.
  5. I agree about 20 sec pauses, i also noticed as the temp drops the time it takes to write data to the sd card slightly increases. The data light can be active for about 5 seconds so you would need more than this anyway to allow the image captured to be written.
  6. I believe the software comes on the cd that came with the camera, at least it did with my 450D. It allows you to set exposure times with pauses in-between.
  7. Hope to see a fantastic image from you then, best of luck i am sure the weather will hold up
  8. Amazing detail, i could stare at that for hours and still find new stuff to look at. Its a very bust area of the sky
  9. I would imagine you would be better making adjustments to the image in photoshop to get the desired results. The clip filter will do a pretty good job but leaves a slight blue hue to the image
  10. Thats a good start, pretty impressive for a first light. I am sure there is more to come.
  11. Very nice setup, i suppose its also nice and quick to setup as well
  12. Just make sure you are not pointing your telescope in their direction !!!!!
  13. Good to see people getting involved in this i might just sign up and give it a go.
  14. Focus and exposure is spot on, can be difficult when its so bright.
  15. Can be very elusive due to the low brightness but worth the work in finding it.
