  1. WoW big difference with the spikes , i much prefer it with the stop down mask...!!! What 135mm lens are you using..? Im looking to get the samyang 135mm for use with my asi 1600 osc. just set up with my 24-105 usml lens on asi 1600 osc Regards Graham
  2. I tried sharp cap 2.9 last night with a 50mm canon lens and zwo 120c with 2 second exposures and found it very easy to use......just followed the instructions and nailed polar alignment on my SWSA down to 00.09" took just minutes. WELL IMPRESSED Regards Graham
  3. Well i thought i would try out the new polar align tool in sharp cap last night with my SWSA and was very surprised at how easy it was to use. so i attached my ZWO 120 C to a 50mm canon lens and solved 30 odd stars , followed the instructions and hey presto an alignment of 00.09" Gob Smacked !!! As time was limited and clouds on horizon i quickly attached my Olympus EM10 Mk2 with the 40-150 len s set to 70mm , the OMD has a built in time lapse that i wanted to try so set it to take 30 frames at 60 secs. Below is a stack of just 12x 60 s lights as OH those clouds got me. just fiddled a bit in pixinsight, this is my first real go with camera an SWSA Regards Graham
