    Altair Astro ?

    I have just this minute received an email from Ian confirming order was sent but isn't showing up on tracking and unlike Davey-T I have received replies to emails in the past which is why I found it strange that I didn't get any replies to my enquiries.

    Same here placed an order Oct 25 which was confirmed in stock and it still hasn't arrived and Ive had no response to my emails. Im sure it will arrive but the lack of replies to emails is strange.

    Outside storage

    Hi Barry I store my equipment in a shed/office outside i think some form of heating is important to make sure the temp in the shed remains above the dew point I also run a dehumidifier on auto. Dust is another problem to be aware of. All my equipment is dried before being re boxed I use plastic waterproof boxes with desiccants placed inside which are changed monthly if im in and out of the boxes a lot. Floors ceiling door and walls are lined and insulated.
  12. Now sold to jjosefsen thanks for the prompt payment

    Some summer objects in Ha with a small frac

    Ive tried 2 methods for alignment 1 used it in its EQ configuration with sharpcap polar align which appeared to work well then did 1 star align and platesolved,didnt have long before clouds rolled in. 2 AZ mode point north and level then use 2 star align select stars goto and fine tune also used platesolve Unfortunately last night was a very small window of opportunity before clouds covered the already small patches of clear sky. The skywatcher tripod is adequate but too soon to say much more, Im using a 3 Legged Thing PUNKS Travis with Airhed Neo Ballhead with a Starwave Micro Geared photo head mainly because it folds up and is very compact not as sturdy as the sw tripod so time will tell. setup time is fast less than 30mins and it takes me seconds to pick it all up and rush for shelter .The wifi setup is spot on, Ive used the celestron skyportal wifi which is abysmal compared to this,great that you can use all the software on the PC and still link into skysafari5 on the android tablet or phone shame it doesn't come with a container of clear sky.
