  3. Simple shot of the Moon thi9s evening, single shot 1/250 with the 8" Newt and my Cannon 450D. Its so rare these days for it to be clear in Scarborough that any astronomy is better than none! IMG_3640_1.tif
  4. Long time since I managed to do this... firstbtime ive seen that funny bright thing in the sky while Im off work in months! Vixen Sp102M PF Cannon 450D BTW I like folks images, the prom was particularly nice

  7. Can i just say i love the images here and i really live the help that everyone gives each other. its so.. nice.
  8. Forgive a dumb reply but you have got the usb-com cable plugged in? fdti com ports only show up when the cable us plugged in. Its caught out a couple of my work colleagues.
  9. Hi. Ive got exactly that. a vixen super polaris with a sp102m ie 4 inch acro. its still my goto scope. Its now c40 years old (ex Luton) and i love it. as folk have sid its = to a eq5 roughly. in fact i obtained a skywatcher 8” f5 ota and mount that on the super polaris when i want to do planetary. For visual and short run webcam imaging its just about adequate. Wide field camera pics i take by mounting the camera on the other end of the dec axis. Not great but just about passable for short exposures if aligned exactly. All the best for your endeavours! Kev
