    EQ5 battery pack

    Eq5 battery pack with lead attached wanted. I have the motor and controller that comes with it, I just need the actually battery pack as the wire has snapped right at the connection on mine. Alternatively if anyone knows where I could get one please let me know. Thanks, Gary M.
  2. Few small prominences on Sun's eastern limb yesterday 02/02/18. Lunt 35 mm, 2x barlow, 9mm eyepiece and Samsung A3 handheld. Hoping for a better shot this week but forecast isn't looking great here.
  3. First quarter Moon (almost) captured with 120mm Skywatcher refractor, 20mm eyepiece and Samsung A3 handheld.
  4. Waning Moon captured using Skywatcher 120/1000 mm, 20mm eyepiece,and Samsung A3 handheld.
  5. Waxing Moon 30/01/18. Samsung A3 handheld, 120/1000 mm Skywatcher refractor and 20mm eyepiece.
  6. Captured using skywatcher 120mm refractor (F8.33), 2xbarlow & Lumenera 2-1M back on 12.10.2017. Best 75% of 1386 frames stacked and sharpened in Registax6 I was hoping to get a spell of better seeing over the holidays but it hasn't happened. I might post some from last night anyway but the seeing wasn't great.
  7. 7 panel lunar mosaic from 12/10/2017 captured with skywatcher 120mm (F8.33), & Lumenera 2-1M. Best 75% of 1150 - 1350 frames were stacked for each of the 7 panels (frame rate kept dropping) then sharpened in Registax6 before stitching them together in PS6 using the photomerge option.
  8. Thanks Guy I'm just looking on the MPC astrometry guide where it says not to check residuals until after submission, I wasn't aware I could check them for my location at a specific time. I'll have to look in to it. I've still not had much time to do any astrometry between summer, weather and computer breaking down! Got my MPC code almost a year to the day of submitting these observations too. I think I best do some practice measurements on low numbered ones again and check residuals once I know how to. Gary.
  9. Hi guys, I sent in astrometry for (3122) Florence the other night, I'd had to wait two weeks for a second lot of observations due to weather. The morning after I sent them in my data for the night before 15/09/17 was up on their website but not the observations from 31/08/17. Any ideas why this would be? Not updated older observations yet, not needed, just incorrect somehow? Gary, Runcorn Z47
  10. White light solar image with active region AR 2665 visible on the disc 09/07/17 13:37 UTC Skywatcher 120, Canon 100d, Herschel wedge. 1/2500 sec exposure at ISO 100. Levels adjusted and sharpened in PS6.
  11. Noctilucent clouds 02/07/2017 02:09 UTC, captured from Runcorn, England. Canon 100d, 18mm F3.5 @ISO 200 3.2 seconds.
  12. Didn't realise I've had this solar wedge for 2 and half years now until I just came across this post again. It was definitely worth purchasing
  13. Thanks. I've not really done any astrometry since I sent in these observations to get a code. I do always blink my 1st and last images of any deep sky targets to look for anything new but no luck there yet. I'll have to find some known targets now I can submit my observations. Z49 is the observatory of the university I am doing a distance learning course at too, it's a small world.
  14. Finally got my MPC code I'm Z47. Just what I wanted this Christmas. I just hope I can remember the way I done it now.
