    You can use your tower to connect to the NEQ6
  5. Thanks for a great thread. I like the idea of that zip cable tidy wrap. I will order a couple. One for behind the TV and the other for my rig.

    WOW That is worth a mention. Congratulations on both this and your Saturn image in S@N. Well done
  7. July 9, 2017: 64-Pane H-alpha Solar Mosaics

    Great images. Thanks for sharing
  8. Sky at Night

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/48rjk97JYk5l2Tv2cn2VTmy/how-to-find-some-trans-neptunian-objects-in-the-night-sky-in-july-and-august I will look into this. It looks very interesting.
  9. NGC 6188

    Very nice. Thats a great camera there. Love the detail. Thanks for sharing.
  10. This question dates back to the times of Plato and probably before. A broom and its handle, a Axe handle and its head. Even a rowing ship and the replacement of its oars. Its fundamentally what it was but with additions or modifications
  11. A very nice image of Jupiter
  12. 60 hour widefield NAN with Paul Kummer.

    Lovely images. Impressive I agree, the first has a very moody feel to it.
  13. Thanks for a great thread gnomus. I like the comparison of Ha 3nm and 5nm. Its a personal preference but I do prefer the 3nm as I see less stars but that's all. Its a very close call. Interesting none the less. I would love a dual rig but other projects in the pipeline at the moment (ror shed). I saw Sara's article in a magazine which was very interesting. My issue is I have a C11, not sure if I could fit another scope along side it! Either way, it's something else for me to consider
  14. That's impressive. I love the detail and yeah, the colour too. I know its WIP but still I like as is I look forward to seeing it progress.
