  1. If anything I would have said its from the same company as produces the ALTAIR cameras. Adam
  2. Removed reply as I just noticed this is a zombie thread.
  3. Its an ASI1600mm pro analogue or Atik Horizon or QHY163 or Altair Hypercam 1600 Pro. Personally if it was me I would be choosing between the ASI and the Horizon. Adam
  4. Well if your reducing them you are going in the wrong direction. But that aside it's very critical.
  5. I can believe with a TEC140 it is almost impossible to keep them fully aligned. Would be interesting to see if things would work better with a modern CMOS mono camera which would facilitate shorter subs then than the CCDs and hence certainly mean less movement over the course of a sub exposure. I do like the sounds of the active optics solution though. Adam
  6. never like shimming as a solution as I alwasy worried about interducing tilt so if keeping LPF1 I would still go with the clear glass filter.
  7. Baader do a replacement filter along the same lines with UV/IR blocking but I would not recommend it as it results in refelctions. Adam
  8. No problem, Its this one BTW. https://www.astronomik.com/en/photographic-filters/mc-glass-for-dslr-astromodification/astronomik-mc-klarglas-for-canon-eos-1100d-1200d.html
  9. no it will not be sufficiently thick to allow you to focus. You need a astronomic clear glass filter to be placed within the camera.
  10. Just look at the floating point performance. In general though number of cores if more important than frequency on modern processing applications.
  11. Its an interesting one for sure, clearly this sensor is designed to work in daylight and with an IR illuminator at night making it an ideal sensor for security cameras and reversing cameras etc. Suppose it could be used for IR imaging in the astronomy market. Adam
  12. Prolific no, but you will get them on some targets for sure. Horse and Flame being one. SADR being another, the jellyfish, Gamma Cas, some of the brighter stars around M42, M45 for sure. You get the idea. If you really cant stand the effect then the ASI1600mm pro is not a camera for you. Adam
  13. Honestly the 130PDS does not have a APS-C imaging circle once you go mono, much is hidden by the bayer matrix in terms of corner star quality. To be honest with you I only got good corners on my ASI1600 by spending a large amount of time tweeking the scope. Adam
  14. For some reason lots of people have issues with the OSC version of that camera. The mono seems better though.
  15. Depends on how much moon. Even a 5nm AD like mine will not work close to a full moon.
