  7. No I'm definitely selling up as starting something else so listing will be on soon and will be 65% plus as mostly new 6months old with boxing
  8. Hi all I comes with a heavy heart but I'm deciding to quit astrophotography, today I will put a list together of all my equipment to sell so I will be offering a full complete imaging package as most of all my gear is new what is a rough selling price ie how much percentage is normally taken off being sold as used? Thanks in advance
  9. I wish I lived in a area where I can setup a permanent rig it would save a lot of hassle but it's not a option for me as I dont want to wake up one morning to find all my gear missing, I think my best option is to try a different capture product ie sgp as apt is really frustrating me. But I wont give in I will yet try again!!!
  10. Sorry guys I just blew my lid last night!!! I am using the apt beta 3.56.3 and thought it had the new auto meridan filp but from what others have said it doesn't yet ? However I cant get the scope to flip once ascom starts saying meridan limit reached then phd2 starts going off the wall, I issue a goto command but it just wont flip? Plus last night I got setup and everything working perfectly then windows 10 decided to update itself, so setup yet again then clouds came in so waited until they cleared as soon as they do clear I get the meridan filp so packed up and went to bed...
  11. Going to sell the whole blooming lot sick of issues.......really getting on my nerves
  12. Hi I have just downloaded registar and followed your video but when I click the register button it shows " open tiff image window with message saying 1bits/sample not supported? what would cause this?
  13. Hi all I use a skywatcher evostar 80ed pro with a x85 reducer but just wondering how do I do a mosaic image after setting apt to shoot a target which was ic1396 the elephant nebula how to I go about shooting the surrounding areas around to build a bigger picture?
