  1. By ff do you mean focal reducer? The shot with the Barlow didn't have the focal reducer on. The camera is heavy and extended quite far, though it was the same before the mod. Vignetting has always been a problem without the reducer but never suffered from the squaring. Maybe I should send a shot to andy at astronomiser, he did the mod
  2. Here's a shot with longer exposure lower iso. It's the shape of the vignetting that's bothering me. Lower left has a square shape almost like theirs either reflection bouncing back or somethings out of line
  3. I need the power mate for the magnification especially as I'm using full frame. ( I know bit of an obvious answer sorry)
  4. I'm at work currently but should be able to sort something tonight . Here's another ive downliaddd off the camera just now without the power mate and with a field flattener. Shorter exposure time with higher iso. I've noticed with lower iso and longer exposures the problem gets exponentially worse
  5. Morning. I'm wondering if anyone can shed any light on my problem. I had my eos6d modded or astro and daytime use. Tried it last night with very unexpected results. 6d plus 4x power mate and field flattened on 100ed ds pro. light pollution is quite bad. I tried a cls clip filter but problem remained. Many thanks
  6. Fantastic thanks, with camera body that's just on the weight. Keep me posted about the tube sale pleasešŸ‘
  7. Hi, could anyone tell me the weight of the sky watcher 100ed Ds pro please, I'm looking to buy one to use on my eq5 mount but the sites I've read state anything from 3kg to 9kg. Thanks
