  1. I have passed a message on to Barry at beacon hill for you. He is pretty much retired now but I do know he still does the mounts.
  2. Before I automated things that's exactly how I used to do it
  3. Very interesting thread, my QHY9 defiantly blows away from the heatsink.....quality control!!!! Anyway I have just flipped the fan around and will bang off some darks tonight.
  4. My QHY9 draws warm air from the heatsink to the outside air
  5. I had a go with it and it couldn't find my filter wheel (ascom) so uninstalled it
  6. Im sticking with the version i have now, it works for me and i have no need to upgrade. if they bring out a radical new version i will bite the bullet ( but i cant think what that upgrade would be.
  7. I wonder if you accidentally left a Lum file ticked while stacking say the Red channel Kappa Sig would see the extra pixels as outliers and remove them?....asking for a friend.
  8. I have the EQ8 and run it with encoders disabled.....no problems with SGP.
  9. I stepped into the garden at 3.30 Sunday morning and noticed Orion just rising, looked a bit higher and spotted M45, and for the first time could make it out without averted vision. The seeing must have been exceptional just then because not only could i see it directly, i could distinguish separation between the stars.
  10. It's hard to believe it's 10 years or so since we all met up at Bedford, time flies!
  11. I usually do my mosaics manually, but last week used the wizard in SGP......it worked a treat
  12. Wide and in context, and a closer view. Taken with the RC8 and TS71, bothe using the QHY9 CCD
