  1. Did the trick with a remote and a camera and successfully identified the IR filter! Result! Thanks to all.
  2. Thanks guys. Very helpful, and yes, Ian, I think they are the same. I'll use the trick with a remote and a camera to find the ir filter. Thanks again to all. I knew I'd get help. It's what makes sites like these so good.
  3. Can anyone help to identify this set of Trutek filters, please. Three have highly reflective surfaces. When viewing a light source the colour is quite different from the colour when there is topside light source, as in the photo. I am putting together some gear for my first serious attempts at imaging and I wonder if these will be useful. I will be using a Skymax 127, and a Skymax 180 with a ZWO ASI 224MC . Any advice grateful accepted. Thanks in advance.
  4. Can someone please tell me how I can update the equipment listed in my profile. I just can't see how to do it. Thanks in advance. JIm
  5. Thanks Alan and Gordon. That link is to the newer encoders. I've actually found a library of Televue manuals on the OPTcorp website and one of them is about fitting the older encoders to the Gibraltar mount specifically for the Renaissance! Sorted! Many thanks for the advice. What a great site for getting help and advice!
  6. I'm hoping that someone here can help me out with the instruction manual that came with the #stg encoders set for the older style TeleVue Gibraltar mount. The number for the set was SKN-3001. When I searched the televise website for the document all I got was a photo of the encoder set. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  7. I use a Casio Mod.No. 4335 4348. This illuminates with a pale blue light at the touch of a button and shows the phase of the moon, its age and the state of the tide! Also gives a rough indication of the temperature. Costs about £20.
