    Mounts

    It is skywatcher 127 the Handset is the basic one I have to get to the object by up or down slewing, just using numbers 1/2/3/4/5. will depend on the cost I suppose of a new mount. thanks.
  3. I am thinking of trying to upgrade the mount on my Skywatcher 127 telescope,Is it possible to buy a GoTo mount for my scope? this would save me from buying a newTelescope with a GoTo mount,or would the best bet to sell my scope and purchase a new scope. I am looking for the advice from learned friends. Thanks. Ken.
  4. Many thanks for your comments ,as a novice could you explain to me what is the difference between imaging and observing ? thanks.
  5. I think it would make it a lot easier with finding Planets,galaxies etc to just put in the object's in the solar system,anything to help find things quickly,would it be a advantage ? £375 seems a good buy.
  6. Just looking at the above scope would this be a good scope to go for ? gratefull for any comments.thanks.
  7. Hi all ,I use Astrometry quite a lot unable to get on there now,is there any other similar site for uploading photo's for letting me know what part of the sky etc is on my photo's,a great site.
  8. Hi one and all,sometime ago I was told to use the Curves etc for looking up my photo's where one moves the wire type devise for showing what is in a photo,I cannot remember where it was,was it something to do with Astrometry ? webb site,does anyone have a idea as to what I mean,Thanks Kayce,
  9. Put's my Latest moon photo,dull. great. Kayce.

    Moon and Mars

    Thanks for your comment's,I have the 2x 1.25 Barlow which came with the SkyWatcher 127,very confusing looking at all the different lenses can you recommend a suitable one ? Thanks..
  11. I am thinking could this poor photo taken at 8pm Monday have been Saturn,bright object close to where the Moon was ?.
  12. The best clear sky for some time,skywatcher 127,with Nikon attached,quite pleased with photo,would I get much better photo's using different setup,eye pieces etc ? . setting's were 1/100, Iso 160. How do I get a larger Mars ? setting's were 1/80 sec, ISO 160.
  13. Is this Photo okay or not,setting's at 1/50sec F/6.3 400mm ISO 1600. like to think it is perhaps zoomed in was overdone ?.
  14. Photo taken using Nikon D5300 18/400 Tamron Lense 9pm 2nd Sept,looking south from Leicester very small images of Triffid,Hour glass,and Lagoon Nebula,plus quite a few other objects. bright object was the main target,would be great to identify it. Guessing it could be Spica,but will look on stellarium later.
  15. Sorry about my last photo and enquiry,I attached the wrong photo. whoops,Kayce.
