  1. All clear now, thanks. I will try my luck with what I have.
  2. I don't think we understand each other. Prime focus-fed antenna I mean front-fed. Offset antenna has feeder off-axis. From what I saw the setup for H line and GOES is almost same- two low noise amplifiers, one band pass filter. The rest in case of GOES does PC with decoder (see herehttp://www.teske.net.br/lucas/2016/10/goes-satellite-hunt-part-1-antenna-system/) Of course feeder and BPF must be tuned to another frequency (1690 MHz in case of GOES) and of course 1m dish is way too small for serious results, but I want to try it and maybe to turn my antenna to front-fed for better targeting.
  3. Got 1m dish antenna, is it worth converting it to prime focus? I'm planning to put it on AZ-EQ6 mount and try reception of Hydrogen line and GOES satellites.
  4. Thanks, I'll try that. Maybe I will also make a heater from kanthal wire.
  5. I don't want to start new topic, so I'll ask here. Is there something to prevent LCD from freezing? I have a Dell E6400 and after quarter of an hour in low temperatures (-3°C is enough) LCD starts to to display incorrectly.
  6. Has anyone been successful with classic dual dipole antenna? I made it and so far no results (I also waited for Io B storms and others) I'm using Airspy and spyverter.
  7. Wanted to try it out today, but weather didn't allow. I wanted so much to test my new mount.
  8. That's what I was looking for, pity that images are gone.
  9. It's quite good cam, it depends on the conditions
  10. I used original case of the cam, plastic ring from lunar filter (Bresser 60/700) and glass from ceramic fuse holder to avoid dust. I also manage to separate original Ir block filter from the lens without breaking and gave it back.
  11. I don't think the result corresponds exposure time. Among others I suspect the lens from poor suitability for astrophoto. http://astrofotky.cz/gallery.php?show=Giftmacher/1451564996.jpg
  12. Not relevant now, Still learning with DSS and I didn't registered all of the files.
  13. Anyone can help with DSS crashes? I'm trying to stack 38x2min of C/2013 US10 and stars+comet stacking makes DSS crash before stacking starts. Standard and comet stacking only create "comet trail". Tested both on desktop and laptop.
  14. Thanks! I will buy it right away, found it in the czech shop even cheaper. http://www.supra-dalekohledy.cz/filtr-baader-2458472-set-ccd-lrgb-1.25-3-5251.html (ca. 199 EUR) I can take filter wheel too.
  15. How about this set? Is it any good? http://tinyurl.com/p7smnh7
  16. Here's a bad quality video, equipment failed, but also me I hope I'll be able get some frames from first video (broken mjpeg avi)
  17. These are from the refractor by afocal method. Videos from newton waiting to be processed. Unfortunately I didn't catch the beginning because equipment failed
  18. I hope the weather will be as good as today, but 60mm refra will be probably better choice for imaging.
  19. If it's pencil drawing, then is it great work, if not, there's too much of sharpness. Any details about the pics?
  20. Still better (and bigger) than my first photo of Saturn.
  21. Bad seeing yesterday. I tried firecapture for the first time. SEB looked quite interesting
  22. Wow, this is awesome! I can only dream about such details.
