  1. Hi yes you can do reset if you go into menu and look through I can't remember where exactly it is I think it's in functions it say factory settings just press enter will reset handset
  2. The sun was just a quickie to see if filter was ok and ready for Monday ?????
  3. Ha ha ye I could talk all night about who's out there after seeing the amount off stuff out there be arrogant to think we're alone I've just managed to purchase a laptop today so I can process my images so hopefully I'll be postings some pics I got my solar filter the other day seen our star for the first time not processed and dust on my Barlow I've added the colour was white got one sunspot right hand side Jupiter there . Now I've got laptop I'll be able to process them properly but I'm really getting fun out of this new hobby and I'm definitely learning and I'm in amazement with some pics on here truly stunning
  4. I must say the situation you describe I find myself in now after a major health diagnosis and being interested in astronomy for years I decided to dive in .Ive been star gazing for about 5 months now just started take taking pics and feeling rather stressed trying to take all the information in about settings timings exposures never even had a camera before this year not a decent one anyway .I am amazed with the place I live and the things I've seen with my own eyes through my telescope and especially the pics on here to think when I'm looking at andromeda through my telescope there might be some one like me who's just got a telescope looking at the Milky Way blows my mind.The support and help I've been given on here is truly inspirational anyway I just though I'd share my story to help other people who might be just starting out and feeling overwhelmed when you start to keep going the reward is more than worth it thanks for listening
  5. I've got 1200 d you can alter it on that one if you go in video mode then press menu you get exposure press that gives you choice set manually or auto .If you check manual then you can alter that in the menu that comes up when you press q like Nigel was saying .Is the 1100 different ?
  6. I've just got what you mean now but cutting 1/4 inch of tube I thought it was the silver tube I realise you mean of the black tube going in the scope lol it's lot easier when the scopes in front of me .Send me a pm when your about to arrange this cheers for this as well
  7. Alright nige ye I've just checked my scope I know what you mean now I wouldn't have anything to knock that up but I'll take you up on that offer if you let me know how much it will cost Defoe up for that Thoe . That would mean me just take 1/4 inch of my focus tube that's right ain't it ? I was was thinking about a way round that problem as I couldn't think what I could use what do you think would happen if I took 1/4 inch of focus tube but also the length of the knuckle of the eye piece holder then I wouldn't need the plastic adaption then or do you think that would be to much to take of the focus tube
  8. I think I'm getting it now I don't have a back garden to go to so have to travel couple miles to dark site so as a result I keep scope and everything in my car so after I've been out tonight I'll bring scope back indoors so I can have a proper look at it tomorrow work out what I need to do .Now I realise why some my pics ain't looked great it's because I was using Barlow 2x which was ok for short exposures but no good for longer .Cheers for the knowledge I feel stupid now ha ha my excuse I haven't been doing it 6 months yet
  9. Cheers Kat so I'd use the t mount instead of making the one nige did ? So I could buy that reduce my focus tube by 1/4 inch take eye piece holder of I can reach focus .I thinks that's right ?? Cheers for the help nige Kat ??
  10. Sorry about some words been changed trying means t ring dam iPad
  11. If I use your method take 3 1/4" of focuses tube will I need to adapt my t ring with the same plastic ring you made ? What does the new plastic ring do ? I understand getting the camera closer to achieve focus im going out tonight hopefully if I attach my trying to my 1200d do I just attach that straight to the focus tube ? I was using my Barlow with and with out the lens fitted at the end but always with the Barlow tube attached and slid into the focuses tube lol but now I'm thinking I'm having a stupid moment ha ha so I can fix my camera straight on my scope with just the t ring no Barlow tube ?? Ha ha ha is my thinking right there nige ?? I got got some pics of space station the other day well chuffed with em even Thoe I can't process them I'm same as you been great fun learning seeing things dont laugh lol
  12. I use a Barlow when taking my pics I'm new to this myself not really sure how to use my camera as prime like I hear other people saying I use my Barlow attached to my tiring attached to camera then scope but haven't worked out how to attach camera with out Barlow .Ive tried using the 2x Barlow with out the lens attached but couldn't reach focus , does the mean I need an extension or am I just being stupid here any advice be warmly received ?
  13. Hi nige seen some of your pics very nice I too am very new to astronomy AP I believe you've got the same set up as me I've got sky watcher 150 p azt/alt mount with a canon 1200d .Am I correct is this the same as yours ? alas I'm lacking a laptop to process my pics at the moment what I wanted to ask was I use t thread with a 2x Barlow do you use a Barlow or just prime how do you attach your canon to scope ?? I've only got iPad so can't process pics so not taking lots like people are saying just take single shots play about with them in photo shop but I'm loving some of the pics I've seen on here really amazing . heres one of mine don't laugh singe shot
  14. Cheers for your reply ye sorry about dead link I think I'm gonna get the heq5 mount just wanted to make sure I can still use my scope .My scope I believe is 150 MM. I've checked the rings nearest to that size is 160 MM would they be the right size would they be 10 MM over ? and the bracket that's on my scope that fixes the scope to alt/az I take it I just remove that cheers for that I understand now I've emailed FLO just wanted to check with people on here if I could still use that particular scope thank you
