  1. I have the same scope. I do not have the necessary experience as yet to offer an opinion but I hoping that I can now get chance to take it out for a spin after my life has now settled down to a normal routine. I am interested in the replies and will look to use all the advice given when I do get a chance to get out there myself.
  2. Just come across this post, wondering how you were getting on with the scope and, being from just outside of Manchester myself, if you managed to get in contact with any local clubs at all? Jon
  3. Is it just me or does this image kind of look like there is a very feint land mass there? Either way, truly amazing images and I'm really looking forward for more.
  4. Thanks for the replies, I was thinking of this purely as a starter piece to get to grips with imaging before upgrading. I'll definitely have a look at the other options mentioned. Weighing up options at the minute to see what is user friendly and also how they work with other bits of software needed etc. Its given me other points to look at. Thanks Jon
  5. First of all, apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section. I'm just wondering if anyone has come across, or has any experience of the Bresser WiFi Camera? I have no experience in astrophotography, but this piece of kit looks quite good for a complete beginner at a relatively low cost compared to other bits of kit. Really looking for pro's and con's of this or any recommendations of alternative bits of kit to get me started imaging the great sights of the cosmos. Thanks in advance Jon
  6. Sorry it's took a while to get back to you, here I think is what you wanted to see. Jon.
  7. Hi Steve, Do you mean the connectors that came in the box? Your set up is really looking good, you'll have to let us know how it works when you get to test it out. Jon.
  8. So I got myself a nice delivery today, the build is slowly coming together. Jon
  9. Hi from another fellow Mancunian. This place is definitely a great source of information and you'll get an abundance of varied opinions that I've found very helpful so far. Jon.
  10. Hi Steve, That looks like a good set up there to be fair. Did you use any software to get the graph results? If so what are you using for it and what software would you recommend? On your suggestions I have just ordered this satfinder: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/361468620720?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT should have it by early next week should I order some coax cable also? Thanks Jon
  11. I would recommend this, for me personally, when it got to points I was unsure of and seemed a bit out of my depth it just made me want to learn more about that particular area.
  12. Nice capture there, what software are you using at the minute? Thanks Jon
  13. Hi Ian, What I think I will do is to take the trampoline apart and store the metal base for a while, that way I can research more into that option. I will have to look at the different materials that I could use and also the ways to make it work for me, would certainly make for a bigger bit of kit than my old sky dish. Thanks for the inspiration for a further project Jon
  14. Hi Ian, That actually sounds like a good idea, I was just planning on getting rid of it but now that you mention it, I might try to construct something using that as a base. My expertise (if you can call it that) lies mainly in woodwork, but, having that to play about with I could look to develop a new skill in metal work too. See, radio-astronomy, the gift that keeps on giving Thanks, Jon
  15. Hi Steve, Thanks for the links, certainly gives me something to think about. I'll have a good read of the Mike Brown link too and hopefully I'll pick up some good ideas for my own small set up. I may look to increase the capacity a but further down the line myself but I don't have too much space to play about with but hopefully I can get something decent on the go. Thanks, Jon
