    Imaging with the 130pds

    In my experience not possible, unless you want to turn against the motor. But I suppose the purpose of the auto focuser is to provide handsoff micro-fine focusing without introducing any vibrations (great for visual). So somewhat makes the ds focuser redundant

    I watched this video when I got mine(also came with clouds), very comprehensive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpIteLt3xcw&feature=share
  3. 14mm Lens on Canon 6d. 4x20s stacked with 4 darks. Stretched in Pixinsight.
  4. Night of the weekend 17/18 Nov was crystal clear, and I just happened to have two new toys to play with!! newly modded Canon 550d and the Helios 135mm f2.8 lens Pointed the camera towards Pleiades then thought why not try California Nebula! Never shot this target before. Am quite pleased with what 30x120s lights can deliver, I think modding my camera was a great move. Totally forgot taking dark and bias but hey-ho, can’t have it all , and it was 330am bed was much needed!
  5. Hi, anyone here used the little ZWO asi120mc on a Coronadon PST? would like to know if anyone here has actually got this set up and tried. I researched and found mixed reviews, some say its not possible, some say it is possible with 2xBarlow, some say they butchered their PST to make it work. Thanks!

  7. 30s. I always try to leave half the exposure time as intervals between frames
  8. Always wanted to snap this region of the Orion constellation, knowing the vast nebulosity that hides within this region. Especially I have just had my DSLR modded and had not tested it During the early hours of 18th Nov, the sky was crispy clear and I decided to take the camera out and give Orion some attention for those who may not know the big red loop is called Barnard’s Loop, remnants of a supernova. Also showing Orion’s Nebula, flame Nebula and Horse Head Nebula. Pic Info: 60x60s lights at iso800, taken with canon 550d modded and 50mm lens at f1.8 , mounted on star adventurer mini . Lights stacked in DSS and processed in pixinsight.
  9. I got a SW motorised kit for my 12inch dob which already has a DS focuser. i am very happy as when viewing I m totally hands off the scope, it is a joy when doing ultra fine focus with no vibration in the view

    1st full moon picture

    Didn’t even notice! Gave it a little tweak in lightroom to get the white back more
