  1. Ay mates ! Did an artical image from my sketchy setup ! Was a great view from here. The skies are pretty clear here.
  2. Aah .. the pleasure of a good morning session . Great image . Sharp detail . One question : How much would a skyline 200 dob cost if i buy it India ? In rupees ? Any estimates?
  3. Wow . This is exceptionally good . Well ,after all one of the biggest members of sgl is writing it. Beautiful!!
  4. Yeah raspberry pie is a wonderful tool if you use it for making push to go scopes . I think it will depend on the quality of the accelerometers how accurate you scope will be . Wish you best of luck . Raspberry pi is a really flexible machine . Clear skies mate .
  5. Believe me if you start looking for m13 with your 200 skiliner ull find wonders . find andromeda ull just see a fuzzy patch but i got the most amazing feels seeing them . I suggest you download stellarium take some time decide your targets and go hunting . See the map carefully and try to navigate using stars .

  8. Great image mate ! I wish i could even start imaging ! ..great work ... best of luck with your progress . clear skies..!
  9. I am an ameture astronomer form the little city of gwalior . I have been fascinated by the night sky since i was just a kid (im still a kid) . I bought a telescope with all the money i can save. So now i come to my topic . How do I start imaging? I am quite familier with the night sky now and know how an eq mount works . But the question is can i get anything without having descent equipment . Cause really i just have astromaster 130 eq with me with a cg-3 mount which all of us know is not at all capable of handling astrophotography to begin with . But what is the basic equipment i need if i w
  10. Back after such a long time ! ... still the feels i get from this fourm remain the same
