  1. I have an Esprit150 in mine.. all up length is 1.25m and there's loads of room to spare
  2. Very nice Steve, and that setup gives a great fov.. Dave
  3. That's a good result for your first time and for the integration time.. You can get rid of the green in Photoshop (and maybe GIMP... I'm just not familiar with it) with Selective Colour, tutorials online on how to do it or as I've done below in Pixinsight with scnr... Dave
  4. It was obscured by power lines here an hour ago.. they disappear so fast at this time but at least it’s clear for a change!

  11. I got one a couple of years ago and it works fine.. there was an issue with SGPro asking for radius when it wanted diameter (or vice versa.. I can’t remember now) but after they fixed that about 18 months back it’s been great.. follows the scope perfectly before and after flip. A friend did have a problem with the display which failed quickly and needed a replacement which took quite a while to arrive .
