  1. In all seriousness though, I'm glad you solved it. And there really is no such thing as a stupid question here.
  2. Well, that is a Reaper. Better get ready for indoctrination.
  3. I have that piggyback attachment thing on my tube rings, but how exactly do I mount my camera on it? Every time I've tried the camera ends up in a weird angle, when I want it to point at the same thing my scope is pointing at. Do I need to buy something else or am I missing something? Or both?
  4. Thankyou . Go for it, making the filter is quite easy, there are lots of tutorials on YouTube.Including my own that's not very good .
  5. Thankyou, I'm quite happy with them myself
  6. Yesterday, I made solar filter with white light solar film from Thousand Oaks Optical. And today, to my suprise, there was a period of no clouds. So I took the opportunity to test it. Here are the results, these are three separate frames with different post-processing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ezsrgdva86n8rwb/IMG_8455.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/ylkmbe8mzkhjxkv/IMG_8542.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/5amrl7aygw39wwe/IMG_8465.jpg
  7. This is what I suspected. I do a bit of imaging with my setup, but I doubt it could handle a second scope and camera. Even if it could, my mount doesn't have any ports. So I guess I'll have to perfect my tracking, which I don't mind at all . Thanks for the clarification, everyone.
  8. I have dual axis motor drives in my setup, and I'm guessing that is tracking? But then what is guiding? What is the difference?
  9. Thankyou! Yeah, I will do just that as soon as the weather allows for it.
  10. I didn't know there was such a thing as "roo large" when it comes to telescopes.
  11. Great Scott! That image is beyond words. Incredible.
  12. Can I have your old mount? ^^. Grats on the NEQ6 .
  13. When I asked this very question a couple of years ago, I was met with a counter-question: Do you want to learn the night sky and how to navigate it? If the answer is yes, then GOTO is not a must-have and you're better off without it. And it makes sense. I went with a scope without it, and thus I've had to manually point my scope at whatever I want to see, and doing that for a while learns you quite a lot. If that is of no care to you, then go for it. And of course, you can still learn stuff anyway, I'm just saying that this way worked wonders for me.
