    TeleVue Pracorr

    Looking for TeleVue VIP-2010 Paracorr or Televue PVL-2008 Paracorr, for a good price.

  3. Which one of the type 1 is photographic? and How does it fit? Do you take away the the tuneable top to fit it into the focuser? How well would it work with an f5 newtonian for imaging? Thanks in advance.
  4. I am upgrading to newtonian setup for imaging and I came across Paracorr type 2 as one of the best on the market. What is the general thought if I went for it? Is it recommended? Has anyone imaged using it? I know that it has a Barlow effect, factor 1.15, but that dosen't bother me at all. Also I found a much less expensive second hand one but Paracorr type 1. Would it work for imaging just as well? Cheers /Firas
  5. Hi Alan! Where can i find your review? Do you think a type 1 Paracorr would be as suitable for imaging with an f5 newtonian as with type 2? I found a second hand type 1 that is much less expansive than type 2. Thanks in advance /Firas

  7. Congratulations on the neat work Göran! It's masterfully built and well thought. The Madam is looking tough! Are you going after deep sky with it? /Firas

    Just shows what dark skies can offer. I was stunned when I saw the tidal structure in the first singel 5 minuts exposure.

    Thanks friend! I also like the FOV.

    Thanks! Correction made.
  12. This was taken in march from @wimvb's wonderful dark skies. I didn't really have the time to process it until now. It took few hours of work and to decide which direction I should take to process the very short stack of integration. I found that processing in a completely dark room gives better results. (like film development one could say L 33x300=2,35 hours (Shows what dark skies can do) RGB & Ha 6x300=30 minuts each 4,35 hours in total. I am parting with this great scope, the SkyWatcher 80 ED, only for the sake of upgrading to the dazzling path of Newtonian telescope and remote observatories. I found that my astro-passion actually circulates around galaxies and less around nebulae. And so a bigger scope is indeed what one needs. Nevertheless, wide-field imaging is really something on its own and should not be judge through aperture only. Image below is JPEG I don't know how to insert TIFF into the post, which is in higher resolution. CC is always welcome! /Firas
  13. Right! And I have contacted him and got a rather an interesting answer; scroll down; https://www.astrobin.com/403083/C/?nc=user
  14. Hello! I need an advice regarding the possibility of putting a TS 8 ONTC carbon fiber on a hyper tuned HEQ5 pro, moded with Rowan's belt to set on a pier in a permanent obs. Ideally Neq6 mount is the direction to go, but unfortunately I lack the funds of a new mount at the moment. Will I be fine? I additionally plan to guide through OAG to reduce wight. The focal length would be 1000 or possibly 1200, which should be fine for the mount as I understand. Thanks in advance /Firas
  15. I find myself in the same dilama as I am torn between these two. One thing I liked with the ONTC was that you can choose the color of the tube. If that would ever tip the equation in favour of one of the telescopes Have you decided yet?
