  1. Yes, obviously it is on me to risk it or not. Maybe a good solution is do do it rarely, in perfect conditions, when we go far away from the city. On the other occasions - visual and webcam. Thank you guys for your effort!
  2. One gentleman gave me a link to the similar topic - http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/78798-skywatcher-az-goto-mount/?p=768296 There a member with the same scope and mount said that he uses dsrl with it normally. But my experience is that it is strugling much more to move with Nikon when compared to webcam.
  3. I just finished reading the link that Joseki gave and one gentleman with the same telescope said he normally uses the dsrl camera on this mount. Hm... But I agree with Ronin, I saw that it moves with a lot more of effort when dsrl is attached to it. With webcam - no problem.
  4. Thank you very much for your answers! Yes, it is definately a galance issue. We tried to move the telescope, reposition it, but it eventually slided back. Maybe we did not tighten it enough. But we were afraid to not brake anything. Joseki, you are right, I am also afraid that dsrl weight could be too much. Maybe it can do harm to the motor? :/ We made a modified webcam and it works great, but we have a Nikon D90 from before so we thought that it is a great opportunity to make nice pictures with it (good exposure). Thank you for the link! I will look at it immediately. Kind regards, Tihana
  5. Thank you. If I move telescope further, the only way to secure it is the screw under the handle? We tried that, but maybe we didn't screw it tight enough and the telescope eventually slided back. Also, it will not brake the motor of this mount? It seems that it moves a little harder with Nikon on it... I am sorry for posting a subject again, I was searching in this forum for the same thread, but could not find it. Can you give me a link so I can stop repeating the questions? I understand how bothersome it could be; the same questions, the same answers. (Sorry for bad english, I am from Croatia)
  6. Need HELP: My husband and I own Skywatcher Mak 127 SynScan Goto. We are extremely satisfied with its visual strenght and contrast. BUT, few days ago we tried some astrophotography for the first time with Nikon D90 and we had some serious problems. The goto system had troubles with Nikon's weight and Nikon continued to pull the telescope down. :/ Does anyone has the same telescope and could give us some advice how to use Nikon D90 with it? We would be very grateful. We are afraid that the Nikon D90 is too much weight for this alt az mount and that maybe we will do harm on it... I saw in this forum topic that some of you used the same Nikon D90 with SW127 and took very nice pictures. I hope we will be able to do that too.
