  1. I look into buying one of those Telegizmo's in a little time later.
  2. This was my 1st light with my camera, the stars are a bit of an odd shape, that was because this afternoon I realised my Optolong Dual Enhance filter the night I was imaging got cracked, as I accidentally dropped it. See thread However I was very much impressed with the results only for 1 hours worth of data, no calibration files were used.
  3. I need it waterproof and hardwearing because it would be outside with the elements. Nadeem.
  4. I think its more painful buying another !
  5. The Stanley rubber gloves did it, thanks. Nice to see there's no damage to the reducer.
  6. No Obsy, just a concrete base for now, I thing I need to invest in rubber tiles or something.
  7. I had a nasty expensive accident on the 1st night of using my pier, the reducer fell out of my hand and the front filter got smashed. I feel so gutted £185 down the drain. I am finding hard to swallow. I can't seem to unthread the filter from the front now, maybe its jammed from the side of the impact. Any ideas ?
  8. You should be just fine with a Unmodified DLSR.
  9. Doh ! You are Absolutely correct Vlaiv. Thank you just exported to 4144 x 2822. Thanks.
  10. My current setting is Bilinear Interpolation.
  11. Hi, I need some help in this, I am sure I'm missing a trick here or I am going mad : Last night I was imaging, I stacked the images using DSS, when exporting the image into PS I noticed the DSS Autosave.tif image was saved at 2072 x 1411 instead of the native resolution at 4144 x 2822. I was binning at 1x1. Thinking it might be a problem with the FIT files, I checked in FITS Liberator and they all showing 4144 x 2822 resolution also this resolution shows next to each file stacked in DSS. Is this a DSS issue or a setting I need to set. The FITS settings in DSS is set to Generic RGGB, Any suggestions please ? Thanks Nadeem.
  12. That black tape is only securing the spiral cable wrap to join the ends together. I had loads of cable wraps in different lengths.
  13. Tonight's session imaging with ed72.

  15. You have done certainly very well on this. It can only get better with a modded camera. The central core is not blown out. You could darken the background and it will pop the galaxy out a little more. N.
  16. I have a dehumidifier cannister under the covers. I need to print off a fixing bracket
  17. My wife is waiting for the construction stuff to be cleared around the pier before I can have a go. Walking on crutches is no fun and dangerous in the dark with building material around. N.
  18. Today I fitted the mount head on the pier, I found the peg a bit long so I had to thread an 8mm rod with some nuts to create a correct size peg, now everything fits flush and tight. Also I need some long azimuth knobs. Where can get some from ? Finally covered over with a waterproof tarpaulin with a fresh hardcore rubble bag underneath. Colour is bright, but so long it does the job it's no problem. Bungee cords are firmly fitted.

  21. Hence the reason for the extended rebars. N.
