    Lunar Eclipse 21st January 19

    Will set up digital recorder, see if eclipse causes nocturnal critters to freak. If they attack, record that also.

    The Sun in Ca-K - 17th Jan 2019

    Nice CA-K disk and proms even with seeing. I like zooming in on your CA-K disks for detail and nicely shows grime/pet hair I need to clean off my screen

    Some people...

    Was very nice of you to give item away for free. I factor in time, hassle & risk but even giving something to friends can be hassle and waste of time. Sold friend old small boat (in great shape) for practically nothing few years ago, I filled out paperwork on my end but he never filled out paperwork, registered it or payed fees (he's bit lazy & cheap), then resold it last week. The new owner reached out to me, only way can get it registered is if I fill out more paperwork, order a duplicate copy of title, pay fee, sign it over, mail everything in. I thought this was all done with back in 2015.. New owner is nice and offering to pay fees so helping him get straightened out. Nothing to lose a cheap lazy friend over...just as you say "scratch my back and ill kick you in the face".

    Celestron Motor Focuser SCT

    JMI another sct focus option works good. Has option of either handheld controller that comes with or pc focus control accessory which is what I use most often.

    Jan 18, 2018: Moon with C8 and DSLR

    That will look great for eclipse, Aristarchus is a neat turquoise color. I like 2x saturation.

    Show us your set up in action at night.

    Here kitty kitty, oh no..not a kitty! It seems very relaxed around you, cool images.

    Matter where LP filter is in train ?

    Not sure a filter can go into a sct focuser, its the spinney knob on top but will try it before like you suggest.

    Lunar Eclipse 21st January 19

    Weather looking iffy for me...Below NASA info.
  11. Last deep sky try with this set up I guided via finder scope, the result were elongated stars due to sct mirror moving over course of evening. Hoping guiding thru OAG fixes this along with occasionally checking focus. Found 2" Baader click lock off Herschel solar prism screws on sct f6.3 reducer. Nice randomly trying bits together finding they fit. Now have proper spacing to reducer, similar distance chip to chip with OAG & nearly similar focus between cameras. Guide cam stars won't be pin point but read that's not necessarily a bad thing when guiding. Should LP filter go before broadband filters, after or does it matter ? I can add 1.25" LP filter inside ccd or 2" LP filter before filter wheel or after. Both same Orion sky glow filter. My fifth filter is 7nm ha, LP filter says it allows narrow band to pass thru. Will LP filter help, hinder or do nothing for 7nm ha filter? Light pollution is only bad to South but happens to be next target been waiting to image for awhile now. Thanks & clear skies !

    Meteor thru Menkalinan

    From evening of 5th, burned up near center frame. Direction wasn't from Quadrantids, looks more in line with radius from Geminids / Cancrids. Perhaps just random space rock. ZWO ASI 120mm all sky lens - Shapcap - gain 61 - exp 15 sec - dark applied.
