    Excellent Dec, stars look great around edges.
  2. Could be difficult locating some DSO's manually, but a guy at our society does it with great accuracy the old fashioned Star Map route.
  3. This is no problem with the EVO worm gears, front heavy is fine, I push my OTA as far forward as is possible, no more backlash than when it is balanced, the motor handles the OTA wherever it is loaded, I have hit the base a couple of times and like said only makes a a mess your alignment. eric
  4. Hi Brun, I presume you are using an Alt/Az mount with your SCT, if so the balance is not important at all, I push my Scope as far forward as possible in order to gain as much clearance for my FR, T ext, Camera, balance is only important if using GEQ. Eric
  5. One of the best images of this I have seen, great job

    Good job Vicky getting the colour out like that.

    Vicky, have a close look at your M57 , if you draw a line down ( toward the right corner) from the 2 central stars, you may have captured mag 15 spiral galaxy NGC 1296. eric

    Thanks Damian, still can't figure it out how it changed from a screen shot Mono to Colour when on video haha

    Weird as I just played a short video from Winscar the other night, and M57 came on the screen in colour, here it is 10 x 5 sec stack, less than a minute total, no processing straight capture from the screen.
