  1. Hey all. A couple of days ago I tried out an illuminated reticle crosshair eyepiece, and my telescope alignment improved in a significant way. So before ordering a new one, I thought I would drop a line here, in case someone has one in good condition and wants to sell it in a reasonable price. I don't mind if it is a 2 or 1.25 in, but I would love if the focal length was of minimum 12mm (P.S: kind reminder, I will need shipping to Athens, Greece, with shipping cost, covered from me of course)
  2. Andromeda on September 2018 Less than 5 minutes total exposure time, with a skywatcher 130pds on az synscan go to mount, and a 1100d canon at iso 800. Location:Marathon, Athens, Greece
  3. Found and bought from SGL member! Thanks a lot everyone who responded to this . I guess I will make it for Mars opposition, just in time admins, please close this thread
  4. Just browsing astronomy equipment and came across these things called tripod vibration suppression pads. The most expensive are from Celestron (no surprises here), but there are also some other cheaper brands. Anyone ever tried them? Do the make any work with vibrations? If yes, I suppose that they'll be great for astrophotography/observing with light mounts. Looking forward for your comments
  5. Adding my first successful(?!?!?!) try with astrophotography. From super light polluted Athens/Greece, I present you M31. I took this on September 2017 Only 6 lights @21 seconds, with 1600 iso. Meaning a total of 2 minutes. Telescope : skywatcher 130 pds mount: skywatcher synscan goto camera: canon 1100d (un-modded) DSS was used for stacking and cs6 for streching
  6. Hello there! If someone has a 127 mak, in great condition (and reasonable price), that doesn't use/want anymore, (and he's/she's willing to post to Europe, at buyer's cost) can surely drop me a message! thanks!!!
  7. @teoria_del_big_bang Hey Steve, is this what you're looking for? http://www.astrobuysell.com/uk/propview.php?view=132798
  8. @newbie alert Anytime mate. We need to be very careful when selecting such products, since there are many variants, and all of them are rather pricey
  9. @newbie_alert They say that is the CCD, model because it actually matters. You can have a look at this thread, that explains it greatly:
