  5. You can select english subtitles, Ruud!
  6. About 2cm wide. Ah, sorry, I misreaded that. I used mire de colimation, it does the same overlay with bullseye
  7. No, they are very straight. I even masked thtem to see if the pattern changes, but no. I used a collimation cap too, but the mirror is centered over the primary.
  8. I tried several times to collimate again, but it is spot on. I will try a BIG secondary, a 70mm one.
  9. Hello! I have a Skywatcher 200p (200/ 1000mm), and I'm having some weird issues with (I guess) stray reflections. The problem appears as a fan (I don't know the exact word), that always points to the center of the frame. I'm using a Canon T1i (modded), GSO coma corrector and Astronomik CLS CCD clip filter.

  13. 30 minutes unguided frames?? That is one marvelous mount!
  14. Use sharpcap, you cand do very long exposures (a few minutes even), but you'll have to deal with the growing thermal noise.
  15. I use VNC to control remotely my observatory computer! So far so good!
