  1. Taken at 01-15 this morning, no alignment, no tracking, very poor focus and through Double Glazing back bedroom window , not naked eye so Telrad finder no good had to scout around to get it on screen, a single 5sec sub eric
  2. Anyone going Comet Hunting ? Eric
  3. Good news: The Comet is intact and can be seen in the UK with binoculars just prior to Sunrise with a good view East, only still at around 3deg Lat though. Bad News: The weather is its usually self, Rubbish eric
  4. Be set up about 11:30 give things a run out, be light, but at least Moon out of way lol eric
  5. Have a look at the 533 pro, ideal for your FL eric

  7. I have tried ASICap, ASIlive, easy peasy, anyone using/tried ASIimage (DSO), if so what is your workflow please, a lack of instructions is frustrating for someone wishing to image for post processing to improve their efforts, at the moment i do EAA but would like to have a go at imaging with this software. regards eric
  8. Jindivik, download PhotoShop CS2 its free . regards eric
  9. Downloaded this new software from ZWO cameras, (v1.1.1) looks very promising and far less overloaded UI than is Sharpcap which I found a bit too elaborate. Have tested the ASIstudio with my asi 533 and is a doddle to use the main functions, ZWO have intimated further development of this free package software. eric
  10. Its a great filter for emission Nebula in particular.
  11. Thumbs up for the Optolong L-eNhance dual band filter, decent at reducing some LP and really good when being used on emission Nebula. eric
  12. I have aligned my Telrad to Scope in daylight, just hold your hand over the front of the Telrad and the circle appears, align & adjust it by looking through a couple of fingers keeping the outer circles showing on your fingers, until the center circle is in tune with your eyepiece. As for turning on, sometimes i have to rotate to full, back, and then full again to get the circle illuminated, also I have found it best to not have the circle on full power but adjust its brightness depending on which star you are aligning. regard eric
