  1. Thanks very much everyone This is what I’m going to do, it’s only £70 more to get somebody professional to do it and it will save me worrying about if I’ve done it right
  2. Hi everyone, I have an neq6 which is about 2 years old, it’s not been used that much but I am looking to do a belt mod to it to reduce the backlash in the mount. Does anybody have experience in fitting one of these and is the adjusting simple to do? I don’t want to do the modification myself and then keep stripping it for weeks finding out I need to tighten something slightly. I was hoping the kit was an install and forget kind of thing? If it is something that needs quite a bit of adjustment then I will probably get a professional to do it. Thanks Andy
  3. Hi, I am selling my Kendrick white light solar filter, fits 157mm-167mm outer diameter of telescope tube. Used on a 130p-ds a few times. Perfect condition £20
  4. Hi, I am selling my skywatcher coma corrector. I have now changed to a refractor and have never used the coma corrector so is brand new. £80, willing to post. thanks for looking
  5. Thanks for those pointers, I’ll give it a go tonight again. I think there is a tool in pixinsight that balances signal in the channels so I’ll see if that helps too
  6. I will have a look in the blue data and see what’s happened. I didn’t realise until you pointed it out, and will also try to add the missing red subs with ha ones because I hadn’t thought of that. Thanks very much for the help!
  7. It definitely is, although this uk weather doesn’t help anyone
  8. Hi, this is my first full image with my setup. Taken with WO star71 II and atik 383L+. It’s 4hr40 of 10 minute HA subs. 3x10minute red, 5x10minute blue, 5x10minute green. I’m pretty sure others would get a much better result out of the data. The peaks of the histogram weren’t equal because I had to throw away a lot of red subs so I’m assuming that’s why it’s more pink than red. Thanks for looking and any feedback/pointers greatly appreciated.
  9. I would go for the ed80. Having had a 130p-ds I moved onto a refractor because I didn’t like refraction spikes and I had no collimation or messing around to do. It just works
  10. Thanks, I always look at your images and that’s where I’m aiming for.
  11. Hi everyone. this image was taken with a star 71 II, neq6 + atik383l+. 4hr40 total integration time on different nights 28x600s. I have tried my hardest at processing using pixinsight so any criticism is welcomed. I don't think I have done the data justice to be honest but I've tried my best. thanks for looking!
