  2. sorry, I don't think it was the main board. I had the power board (is that what its called?) swapped.
  3. I bought the cg5 on ebay about a year prior to the repair. they fixed it for a nice 40 quid I believe.
  4. I had to replace one of the boards in my cg5 back in april. I got Rother valley optics to do it

    Program for camera control?

    I use APT, and it is a outstanding program. I have a 1200D too, and it allows me to take amazing images. Plate solving is an absolute blessing!

    Out of collimation refractor?

    Thanks, I was going to get one eventually, as I was planning on getting a newtonian. They are a lot more versatile than I thought!

    Out of collimation refractor?

  8. Hello, I was recently capturing images through my Skywatcher ED 80 and I realised I had purple and green fringing around the stars. I looked at previous images and it turns out I've had the problem for a few months. I'm not quite sure if the problem is the focuser or the glass. Im using a canon 1200D with a astronomik CLS clip in filter and a 1.25 Baader UV IR cut I supplied the stacked raw Tiff. Any suggestions would be nice Autosave.tif

    Sorry im a bit late to the party, but I was wondering how you avoid vignetting with the 1.25 filters?

    Barnard's Loop Observers Analysis

    I've only ever thought of the loop as a photographic object. I would love to see a sketch of what you can see!
