  1. Thanks for all the contributions. I’ve ordered a panel from ELWirecraft (thanks Dr-Ju-ju!) which hopefully will arrive tomorrow. - John
  2. Thank you chaps. I will have a look at them. John
  3. Could any member suggest a supplier of reasonably priced E L Panels? I’m looking for a panel 24cm x 24cm excluding the connector. Many thanks.

    SW Esprit 120

    Just on the off chance I wonder is anyone has an Esprit 120 for sale as there continues to be a dearth from FLO and others. Thanks.
  5. 'Scope is withdrawn pending more favourable Covid situation for viewing.
  6. Just a quick update in the light of a couple of queries. Yes the ‘scope is still for sale! I also take the opportunity to add in the Astrzap dew shield missing from the ad. together with the ZWO EAF bracket for anyone who has that focuser.
  7. Many thanks Shimrod. I have edited the post. Slip of the brain!!
  8. Health issue forces the sale of my Edge HD8. Although not massively heavy arthritis makes the bulk difficult to handle. The 'scope was purchased in April 2020 is for sale with the Celestron reducer and Feather Touch focuser. Total new price using FLO's website figures is over £2100. I am looking for £1700. I will not split the items. Buyer collects bearing in mind current Coved restrictions.
  9. Thanks for remembering but I did manage to acquire one. Best wishes - John
  10. Many thanks Dinglem, I did look at the FLO site. Must be going blind! - John
  11. There appears to be some question as to whether the EAF can be used with the Esprit series. ZWO don’t list the ‘scope as compatible. Does any forum member use the EAF on an Esprit without additional engineering in addition to the bracket supplied. I am currently saving my pennies to upgrade my 80ED in the spring!! Thanks - John
  12. If it is mains power then the Nevada PS-08 from FLO will do all you need!
  13. Fancy taking the mono route? I have the following items for sale. ZWO ASI1600mm cool. £750.00. ZWO LRGB 1.25 Filter Set. £50.00 ZWO Mini Filter Wheel. £120.00 All items were purchased by me from FLO and are in good unmarked condition. Please note: 1. That there are no filters included with the Filter Wheel even though one is shown installed in the photo and 2. the camera is as shown without the USB leads and I do not currently have the dust cap which I am trying to find!! Prospective purchasers are welcome to examine the items
  14. I’m looking to power a 5v wi-fi extender and the ZWO unit would be ideal. I appreciate it’s a long shot. Thanks, John
  15. Just picking up on item 5 of randomics’ list. Don’t forget to replace the screw on the end of the weight bar!
  16. Thanks for the replies. Sorry for the delay in responding. I do not take bias frames Andrew. Received wisdom seems to suggest they are not needed with a cmos camera. My darks look ‘normal’ but they were taken earlier in the day at -20deg. I will now take a look at the condensation issue. John
  17. Yes I suppose that is possible. I had no reason to check at the time.
  18. Yes, thanks Adam, that was my dilemma. Camera or Software? This is a single unstacked image. I did take nine subs and they all exhibit the same issue. - John
  19. Apologies as I am not really a beginner but I'm not sure where else to ask the question. Perhaps Mods can move the post. The image below is a heavily cropped single 600sec sub of IC5146 which I took to test out the Off Axis Guiding of my new Edge HD 8". To the right of the centre of the image is a patch of what appears to be rough chroma 'noise?'. I wonder if anyone can tell me what the likely cause could be. My poor PixInsight processing skills or a hardware issue? The camera is a ZWO294 cooled to -20 degrees. I should add that no such issue appears on all my shorter duration subs to da
  20. Have a look at FLOs’ website listing for the ASI 120mm and I think it will confirm the above.
  21. As has been said there are lots of questions. One of the most fundamental is ‘have you given any thought about what you are prepared to spend’? The reflector route is likely to be less costly than the refractor. I started with the ubiquitous SW 80ED and which I still enjoy using.
  22. This Filter Wheel takes five 1.25" mounted or unmounted filters. The unit is in good condition having only been used for a short period. Please note no filters or cable are included in the sale only the item shown in the image plus the mini screwdriver for opening the case and screws for fitting any non mounted filters. Currently retailing at £174.00. £100.00 inc. carriage.
