  1. Hello, For sale is my wee William Optics GT-81 including a few bits and bobs. 1. WO GT-81 F/5.9 Triplet APO (F/4.72 with included reducer). 2. WO GT-81 Bhatinov Mask 3. WO GT-81 Focal Reducer 4. Orion 9x50mm Correct Image Right-Angle Finder 5. WO Soft Carry Case 6. Canon EOS T2 Ring The scope comes with the original inspection checklist from first purchase. All the equipment is in perfect condition bar minor markings on the mounting shoe and one tiny dust spec on the objective lens which does not impact image quality or viewing at all.

I'll be more than happy to attach/send more. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/william-optics/william-optics-gt-81-triplet-refractor-old.html Total Price: £850

  3. Evening having now returned to the hobby after a bit of time away, I've uncovered some minor specs of dust on the inside of my trusty GT81. It's been stored indoors, in a carry case with desiccant bags. As far as I'm aware, it's not affecting the images that I'm taking but they do bother my very much (OCD?). I'm apprehensive to open the scope up myself and clean the lens as I won't know what I'm messing with and would hate to affect the collimation of the scope by accident. Any suggestions? worth contacting WO? I received it nearly 2 years ago and for the life of me cant remember from where as it was a gift. P.S when I first got the scope there was 1 dust spec on the inside of the objective lens but I didn't do anything about it or return it at the time which I probably should have in hindsight. Advice appreciated TIA A Alhasso
  4. Hope you dont mind - had a go with the tiff. Reduced star-size in PS and some adjustments made in PI.
  5. Back in the for sale section as previous buyer was unfortunately unable to collect due to personal circumstances. I'm Looking to sell my EQ5 Pro Synscan GOTO, It's been fantastic since I got it (roughly 1 and a half years ago) and can't fault it. The reason for selling it is so that I can upgrade to something that can handle more weight for AP. Includes everything that came with it when i first bought it new and an extra big duffle bag to fit everything in. Great mount for anyone wanting to do both visual and astrophotography. I'm Looking for £400 which includes the orion duffle/carrier bag that's worth £82 - (Orion Padded Telescope Case). Cash on collection from Edinburgh or a nearby city. Ali
  6. Hi all, Looking to upgrade from my trusty EQ5 Pro Synscan GOTO, It's been fantastic since I got it roughly 1 and a half years ago - can't really fault it. The reason for selling it is so that I can upgrade to something that can handle slightly more weight with all my AP gear. Includes everything that came with it when i first bought it new and an extra big duffle bag to fit everything in. Great mount for anyone wanting to do both visual and astrophotography Looking for £450 which includes the orion duffle/carrier bag worth £82 - (Orion Padded Telescope Case).

  7. Hi all re-process of the heart nebula using fewer frames, love this object. Been away for a while due to work but now im looking forward to making some time at home to improve my imaging had to get rid of 45 frames or so because they were rotated funny and I couldn't stack them in the last image i had posted 50 x 120 secs ISO 800, Modified Canon 50D on a GT81/EQ5 - really struggling to bring the nebula out even with the camera modified, tried my hardest with PI and PS. Nevertheless, happy with the resulting image dropbox link for .tiff: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zxuo1gfwpno24in/IC1805TIFFPI.tif?dl=0

    Hello

    Welcome to SGL barry
  9. you're right - i'm just being plain lazy by not taking any flats re: the offending upper left corner. The issue is that half of the subs were taken the next night. looking at DSS, it's rotated about 40 of them from last night out of the total 97. I'm not sure what to do about that
