    Belt mod or upgrade

    Tempted to drop it into FLO and see if they can do it during this cloudy spell. There is no downside to the belt mod

    I posted the other day asking about those. Mixed reviews on eBay. How do you rate them over stock?

    Being course, how do you find polar aligning? The heq5 lat bolts are driving me nuts

    Belt mod or upgrade

    Ok, now I'm on a permanent pier in looking at the next upgrade options that have opened up with having a stable mounting point. 1. Belt mod my heq5 2. Az EQ6 GT, really like the lat adjustment 3. EQ6-r, bigger payload 4. CEM 60 (unlikely due to cost) Realistically it's between the bigger SW mounts. Are the encoders useful on the as? It's it worth losing the extra 2kg payload on the eq6-r in favour of the lat adjustment on the az?

    Filter Question

    ah ok, missed the part with the full spectrum needing an ir filter after, which leads to the question, why do the full spectrum mod?

    Filter Question

    Why do i need an ir filter with my ASI290mc and yet astro modded dslr cameras remove the ir filter? or have i misunderstood this?

    When you say aggressive do you mean distance?

  12. I was looking at steel before i went concrete overkill, round or square pipe with triangular fins would be your best option, If you're getting the welder out anyway, just copy a commercially available one with scrap metal. even if you're not welding it yourself you could gather the scrap from a yard and cut the pieces and present it to a friendly welder with a handful of beer tokens
