  1. Well received and looks to be in good order. Now I just need a bigger scope as my 80mm frac looks absolutely puny on this beast of a mount. Thank you FLO
  2. Where did you purchase the Skf bearings?

    Imaging just keeps getting more complicated!

    Wow that sounds awesome! I'm so bummed there is no clubs around where I live for this sort of stuff..

    I suspect it will be significantly easier to frame up for consecutive nights, that is one of the things that just take way too much of my imaging time. I suspect it will also be easier for making Mosaics if that becomes a thing.

    Got the EQ6 yesterday.. What a monster!
  6. Hi @AstroKane, Of course..! It worked perfectly fine to be honest, there is no flex in mounting it this way, and everything is very securely fixed.

    RIP this thread! NEQ6 Pro Synscan incomming
  9. I think we are talking about the same thing..
  10. I'm not sure it is actually, at least in PI. LN is applied during integration, where local equalization is applied after. But I don't know to much about what those tools do to be honest.
  11. I have had similar problems with some of my images, and avoiding local normalization fixed it. The developers of PI has specifically said that Local Normalization is not something you should categorically use on every stack.

    I don't know actually. But I think it has stronger motors, so one could argue it would be better.

    Yes absolutely! I have the non goto version, and even though it is fun to find objects without goto it cuts too much into my imaging time. This is especially true when imaging over multiple nights. If possible save up some more and get a heq5 or maybe the eqm-35 instead.

    That's quite nifty!

    That setup looks very cool! What kind of mounting plate is that? Also what a great image, making me reconsidder getting an HA filter for my modded 600D
