    I'd like the dovetail please. Many thanks Vern
  4. I don't believe you need the Pro version. I have found the free Sharpcap and a basic guidescope camera work really very well.

    BST 50mm mini guide scope

    I use this fantastic scope with a ASI120MC and a 130PDS/200PDS. Guiding is good and Sharpcap PA works great. No idea about the AR0130C as I have not used one.

    Last nights Leo triplet 24 x 240s subs 130PDS + EQ5 + Unmodified 350d PHD2 guided with ASI120MC Pleased with this one :-)
  10. Hi Mike, Many thanks for the response. I have been trying to find the lens you mentioned but can't find a match. Closest I found was an Arecont 1.55mm. If you could send me a link it would be much apprecaited Thanks again Vern
  11. Hi all, I am after a 180 degree fish eye lens for an ASI120M. I am building an all sky camera and am after something better than the standard ZWO supplied 150 degree lens. Many thanks Vern

    If you're still after a mount, then I have one of these which I would be happy to sell as I no longer use it. https://uk.telescope.com/Orion-SteadyPix-Pro-Universal-CameraSmartphone-Mount-125/p/109822.uts Moderators, please remove this message if not appropriate :-)

    Stretching challenge

    HLVG is a plugin. I think it is free or very close to it! It removes green from images. Astronaut Pro is another plugin to remove gradients. I think it works really well. The Arcsinh stretch uses an action I put together based on Mark Shelleys excellent arcsinh stretch...Just search this forum for Arcsinh. I think I over stretched my image but it shows what lies beneath!

    Stretching challenge

    Just for the sake of comparison I had a quick go in Photoshop! Used Astroflat Pro to remove gradient Adjusted black point Applied Arcsinh curve Used ALVG to remove a green effect That's about it!
