  1. [removed word]... Tell me when you are selling it at an even better bargain
  2. Yep.. That just means ordering a new focuser. I opened up the motor to see all plastic gears in disarray. Positioned them in original order, it ran for a min then again messed up
  3. This was a test run of Hypercam 174m. The skywatcher autofocuser broke so I got shoddy focus and I was trying to avoid sun burn, so could not correct the tilt totally. But happy with the cam, got 70fps, a contrast to the 3fps i got with my old cam and laptop.
  4. Oops.. Sorry, had forgotten I had posted it here as well. How to now delete one ad?
  5. Canon 1100d, astro modified Shutter Count 819 3 batteries and Charger included £160 including postage to UK
  6. Smarteq... dont touch it from a mile away. Shoddy all the way
  7. Low shutter count. Have used this camera only twice. Once for andromeda and then for lunar eclipse. Will supply with 2 or prob 3 batteries, whatever i have and charger £200 pp extra
  8. One of the best cameras for Ha solar. With a 1/2" chip and large pixels, I used to fit the entire disc with lunt 35. I can still do a full disk with a quark using my TS 60ED and a reducer on the camera nose. This camera does not suffer from Newton's rings so saves a lot of time which is otherwise wasted in setting up a tilt adjuster. Boxed with the cable, probably i have the disc as well, but not sure where in my astro dump it is. Software is available from the website though. £180+pp
  9. So i made another purchase.. OAG. I have zwo 120mcs. I gather mono cams are better, but with 75% qe, has anyone used an oag with this cam? Or god forbid i have to buy another cam
  10. This was taken using the 'damaged' tripod. Just to give you an idea about how much effect it has on the performance.
  11. Hope it's better visible in the photo below
  12. I had bought this in the hope that i will do astro trips more often. Hasn't happened and i use my avx at home. So this is not finding much use. An extremely portable setup, the mount with weight and tripod leg spreader fits in a shoe box. The stock nuts have been replaced by winged nuts for easy grip in the dark. One of the tripod's legs suffered a slight damage, but I've taped it well and does not affect its performance. I will include the computer connecting cable as well as polemaster adapter. You can read its review here: http://www.altairastro.com/public/ioptron/Skyatnight_95_april2013_ioptron_smartEQPRO-review.pdf Will prefer pickup from London as the postage may be tricky due to the tripod £250.00
