    Focusing with a newt

    I recieved my 2" t ring the other day and problem solved as the t ring has no shoulder on the shaft the camera slides all the way home and allows me to get prime focus

    Close ups

    Hi this might sound like a silly question but what is the art of close up's of dso's is it just a case of cropping in Photoshop or is it magnification ,also what scope would be best for this I've got 10" newt and 80 refractor

    Focusing with a newt

    Yeah I've heard that somewhere I'll have to look into it only want to move mirror as last resort as it sounds like it could be complicated

    Focusing with a newt

    Inwards travel is the problem even with the low profile focuser , you can see the star in live view about to come into focus but just not enough inward travel that's why I thought I might be able to move the mirror up I have a laser colli so I can re collminate after but not sure how you do it

    Focusing with a newt

    Hi all just brought a 250 Orion newt and also a low profile focuser had my first chance to use it last night and still can't get it to focus without a barlow is the only option left to move the mirror and if so how hard is that to do I'm using a cannon 1000d with 1.25 t ring but have got 2" t ring ordered not sure if it'll help or not

    2" focused

    Hi all and happy new year just a quick question I've brought a new 10" newt and want to upgrade the focuser , I'll be mainly using it for imaging and at the moment with dslr but will be upgrading to ccd when funds allow . I'm thinking of crayford 2" would this be a good choice

    cable release

    hi ivor still not got one and not sure if the the canon (tc-80n3) cable release even fit's my camera know so not sure what to do, the one i brought was from digital media store made by jjc but i really wouldn't reccemend it

    cable release

    hi john i'm using 1000d i had a manual cable release which was cheap and you had to stand there with the button pressed watching the time on the camera so when it broke thought i'd upgrade but the cannon one seemed dear so went with the cheaper option and although it does what it's supposed to it will only let me program a delay longer than the exposure if you don't it automatically set's for 99 min's very frustrating (wasted two hour's last night till i realised only got one sub)
  12. hi all just recently brought a new cable release from jjc as it was half the price of the cannon version and it's useless, for some reason the delay between exposure's has to be longer than the exposure itself and it has no setting for the mirror lock .could anyone tell me if the cannon one is the same before i spend more money

    apo for imaging

    thank's for the info guy's time to go shopping
  14. hi all could do with some advice i'd like to buy a refractor for imaging i've got £700.00 to spend could probably push to £800.00, i've been looking at the orion eon 88 ed apo which is £699.00 as i'm still learning the art of imaging {going by the review's} it seem's like a good buy or would i be better saving more and getting 120 i've never owned a refractor before so any help would be appreciated cheers
