  3. Hi Nikos. The Eq5 & Eq6 are well known for thier grease problems ( Made in China) if you are considering taking your mount apart, i have done this, I would clean out the old black grease and use http://www.klueber.com/en/lubricants/lubricating-greases/ this is the Best Grease for the job.. Dont use Wd-40.. Clear Skys John
  4. Hi, Try this... I know its in German...http://starchaser.de/deepskystacker-fuer-mac-osx/ Let me know if you need help.. Cu john
  5. Hi , just a thought, it has been mentioned before, check out your screws, etc.. I had a C11, and had the same probleme..One of the screws was in too far, therefore gently touching the Mirror.. Going back to what you mentioned before, "as I did have a another shoe for a finder scope on it and removed it the other week".. your scope was fine before, since you have made a slight change... whay may be happening, is that the mirror is yes moving, but rubbing against a srew, as we say (its squinty) common Jimmy , I would completly remove the new shoe, & screws, and try again.. We want to see your scope working.. Cu John..
  6. Hi , Have a look here. https://stellafane.org/tm/newt-web/newt-web.html John

  9. Hallo Peter, Thanks for your reply, To admit , i was too lasy to check my settings on BYE, just wanted to set up things, then off to Bed.. Btw, I was trying to Take a Photo of the Cone nebula. Now as you said, i noticed that the exposure was too high ( 1600), need to change that, and also i dont have any L.P.F. Now things are starting to come back, i checked my camera settings, and i noticed that the Noise reduction was turned off, if that will help i will have to check that one out.. Do you thing that Dithering would help to solve this noise Problem? Any ideas ? Cs John
