  1. Bahtinov mask from FLO Guide to using one Use you camera in live view if you have the screen. You can then zoom in and get a good accurate look at whats looking like.
  2. Saw this pop up on the Facebook page. Its to coincide with backyard astronomy week and seems like a good way for people starting out to get going. Sky at Night back garden astronomy guide
  3. Ive got a half moon shot i might be able to use. and the two cutouts i think are over triming after a stacking.
  4. Is always check you've done everything you needed before finishing a session. Then check again. Otherwise......... 25 Pane Mosiac failure. I didnt bother to finish getting the panes perfect after i found my mistake. ?
  5. Hi Johnny, It can all seem daunting and frustrating at times. Any pictures you can supply of what you see through the eyepiece ( Use you mobile camera over the eyepiece, or a rough sketch ) and also your set-up on your focuser to maybe see what @Ricochet is identifying.

    Mostly moon and scenic images
  7. The best results ive found when imaging the moon has been to use a video and then run that through Registax. it helps to clean up the image and remove some of that shake.
  8. Ive got the lower of the two in the image and can confirm it unscrews at the join just above the writing. Hope this helps.
  9. Nice scope, Was my first. A good all round scope for local and deep sky. Clock drive can be a bit jumpy at times if your looking at imaging. It doesnt say anything about eyepieces included even though there is one in the image so id ask that question before you buy, otherwise you'll have to spend £40-50 on an EP (and you might need a few) The one i got came with a 10mm, 25mm and 2x barlow.
  10. Does anyone know if the Sky-Watcher EvoGuide 50ED Guidescope & ZWO ASI120MM Bundle would work on a Standard EQ5 mount. I DON'T have the PRO version.
  11. So if your looking at light from distant stars traveling over unfathomable distances that may or may not still be there are you still seeing them?
  12. Max i go for is 200x for uk skies. I was advised of a good rule (regarding Newton telescopes) and that was to max your magnification to the aperture size, allowing that 200x was your upper limit. So on my SW 130 i use an 8mm (wasnt a 6 EP on the market in my price range) for my SW200 i use a 5mm giving me 200x.
  13. Another option is Magic Lantern If your using a Canon. You can customize the exposure times past the standard 30seconds.
  14. So it turned out that it doesnt matter which style of mount you use if the clouds roll in untill 12 then you get so much light bleed from the very bright moon. Maybe next time.
