  1. There was a lot of cloud last night but I just managed an image using my Canon750d and my Canon 55-250STM lens at about 135mm. If I had had longer I could have got some stars in too but it was a very short window. Moon looked really clear.
  2. Why do you need a filter wheel with a colour camera?
  3. I would say that clear nights are getting much rarer. I remember just a few years ago that we had more clear nights and now it just seems like endless cloud cover. That's just the way it goes - keep faith.
  4. How are you focusing? Try focusing on a bright star first with a bahtinov mask before slewing to Mars and not touching the focuser again.
  5. You might struggle to get a Nikon astro modded. What about getting a Canon from here. Might be cheaper than getting the Nikon modded anyway. There is a modded Canon in the For Sale pages.
  6. That's the one I use and it's better than a "standard" UV/IR cut.
  7. I bought an Esprit 100 from FLO recently and asked the same question - was told that no certificates were issued.
  8. Your link does not work.
