  1. thanks RolandKol. i think i used to waste time mounting first and then colimating will surely do .last time my power converter to power laptop shot up and the whole clear night was waste?
  2. hello not sure if this is the right place for this topic.? wanted some advice on how to set up equipment fast in the dark sky sites. colimation, polar alignment, mounting up etc takes a long time to do all these things ? the things we have are polarmaster, neq6 , 250mm gso f4 newtonian reflector, dslr and laptop we take a car battery to power up stuff . some things we do are aligning the finder scope and guideing scope in advance.
  3. Has anyone tried to observe the comet from town skies (bortle 6/5)?using a telescope off course
  4. Observed this yesterday from bortle scale 3/4sky. Used gso 8 f6 dobsonian and 40mm eyepiece, managed to see it in viewfinder, it looked better in it XD
  5. Hi The mount is 2yrs old and it wouldn't show much alignment stars and would sometimes take a long time to show stars. Yesterday it took so long to find alignment stars during a star party, we tried several times, twice it showed us some stars which are not so bright and hard to find. Then when we powered it again, it showed us Sirius, then it wasn't even showing the next star, it was saying searching only. Last 2yrs we didn't get bothered much but now it's irritating, we ended up doing a one star alignment. Anyone else facing this issue!?
  6. ive not used cartes du ciel to slew . so basically after alignment i just open cartes du ciel and select the comet and slew to it or do i need to do some adjustments in ep mod? thank you
  7. Hi I was wondering how do you track comets while taking pictures of them? Heard a comet is getting brighter now (46p wirtanen). Got a autoguider, PhD and all. And which software is to be used to goto the comet? Cartes du ciel? Or something else?
  8. Hi I was wondering if there are good solutions to get rid of dew problems on camera lenses. In may the lens was getting covered with dew every 5mins. It was so irritating. Need some advice on this. Thankyou
  9. Hi :) Just wanted to know if there are any people here who use Ryzen processors with pixinsight. How well do they work? Thankyou
