  1. Great image, really sharp. I must try this 'fill gig memory card up' stuff and see if I can come up with on half as clear.... but first....the clouds must clear!
  2. Thanks Steve. forgot to ask - are you using any counter-weights? Do they/Will they make much difference?
  3. Great capture Steve and in the reduced format. Can't wait to get settled in so I can start moving in this direction..... What Off-Axis are you using? You must be well chuffed!

  5. It helps! Now if someone can invent that deckchair!!!!!
  6. ok - thanks, this is becoming clearer in my mind now!!!
  7. OK - this is going to seem like a stupid question but which bit do you align to Polaris? Is it with the OTA on the Wedge, pointing straight up at Polaris, or is it an angle on the wedge? Also - those flight cases are far too tidy!
  8. Hi Steve - Great post, only just managed to read it. REALLY useful and VERY easy reading. Thanks and keep em coming cos I will be doing this soon! Of course, that means questions coming your way!!!

    Thanks guys, I would feel a bit cheeky asking someone who makes them for a living for plans.... I will hunt around the web and see what I can muster - it's a pretty advanced setup I have access to so will see what I can find out. In theory could end up with a custom, heavy duty wedge for £10..... KK - if you do have a play and fancy me making one up for you then let me know.... The hunt begins....
