  1. Imaging target suggestions ED80?

    What an excellent website!
  2. Jupiter and GRS

    A fine looking image Avani, very nicely presented as well.
  3. Tracking solar

    I only ever do a very tough Polar alignment, when away from home. This generally involves just pointing the scope north. At such short focal length and image run times it's not too important.
  4. I use my Evostar 120mm on my EQ5 without any problems at all. A diagonal ensures the eyepiece is in a decent position most of the time.
