  1. Aliexpress alternative This seems like a steal, use the same sensor and have a good housing that seems easy enough to modify the frontplate
  2. Well this proves how insanely spontaneous i am, i was so close to ordering it right now. Will wait for tomorrow at least.
  3. Looks interesting, won't ship to me though (Norway). Will have a look around for cameras with that sensor.
  4. Ok, makes sense. You think you can do anything fun with this? https://www.ebay.com/p/Basler-L103k-1k-Digital-Line-Scan-Camera-L100-Series/1001673632 I have one nearby for 30 pounds.
  5. Cmos is the way to go now for the last couple years is this not true? I would imagine that the newer cam the better sensor, for instance, Logitech Pro 3000, 4000, 5000 the newer the better? What are we looking for when it comes to sensors?
  6. Seen versions of both of them, surprisingly good results. I'm down to make a few different, mainly because i like making stuff. I would prefer having the best cam possible though so that one got good results with it. A friend is shipping me a Olympus OM-D E-M1 for more serious photography, but i'd like the DIY solution in the meantime.
  7. Been looking thru videos and threads the past weeks but can't find anything new, what is the preferred webcam now to modify? Was bored today and made one out of one of the cheapest cameras around just to test the theory behind it. I have loads of 1.25 carbon tubing so that's a start.
  8. ^This and what i have attached with this post really gave my brain some trouble today. I'm glad someone had uploaded a copy of the manual on the web. I guess my DEC circle is off? When EQ aligning it and the wedge is correctly set to the Lat and the stand set to north then the polaris should be more or less bang on with the DEC sat at 90?

    Hey hello

    You never realised how much you despise clouds until you get your first telescope.
  10. Nvm, looks like it clocks out at 60 just where the screw ends so i'm just inside.
  11. But, it only goes to 45, im at 59, Im clearly stupid in some way now but i can't see how i will get this scale to work. Glad to hear, I basically had no idea what i came home with.

    Hey hello

    No turning back now, scope is in the house. Now if it would stop snowing that would be great.
  13. Sweet, a C5+ is now standing in my living room. It was in great condition, one owner, bought it for him and his children 20 years ago, Used it a handful times and then left it standing unused. So yeah, im happy. Snapped the finderscope mount during transport though, on closer inspection it was already dmg at the area were it snapped so it was due i guess. Epoxing it now. Telescope came with loads of adapters that i have no idea what it is, link; https://imgur.com/a/ewCg6 Also a bit confused with the wedge, I was expecting latitude numbers on it but instead it looks like regular degree numbers instead, probably just me that misunderstood the whole EQ concept.

    Hey hello

    Probably manageable yes but i will let someone else be the guinea pig for that

    Hey hello

    Thank you C5+ is what i'm going to look at tomorrow, I almost went "according to me" full retard as i usually do and was about to buy a 200p on a eq5, good and better for sure, but 1, its my first scope, 2 i live in a tiny apartment, 3 drive a lotus elise, so it was not the scope for me. C5+ seems more like what i want to begin with. I know i will take of like a rocket if i like this hobby/lifestyle and upgrade if that's the case but for now it seems appropriate.
