  1. 2m Lynx Astro cable for iOptron mounts .. , connected up once , brought December 14th , as new .. £23 including UK postage.
  2. I’ve sold my CEM60EC Mount and currently preparing my Mesu 200 and new RC10 scope .. in the mean time since I brought a second hand ZEQ 25 iOptron mount to use with my TS65Quad I haven’t used it or the Quad .., so I thought this would be a good chance .. however last week on the one clear night the moon was very bright and there was 90% humidity , with some mist around , so seeing wasn’t that good .. but I decided to have a go at Orion .. first time in over a year .. by the time I had figured out how to connect the mount and point it via CDC time was pressing on and Orion was already in the south .. I managed a couple of hours of Ha , 12 x 600 sec
  3. Took delivery of this baby yesterday .. downloaded the quick start guide yesterday and installed the software today , changed some of the parameters to the recommended, and surprisingly everything connects and controls via the laptop .. made up a mount for my pole master aswell . Should be able to borrow a large Tri-Pier towards the end of the week , while my static pier is under construction..
  4. it’s going on Ikharus 10”RC ..which was also based on GS optics
  5. Hi Vlaiv , its going into the imaging train of a RC 250 . I want to use the 0.67 reduction ..
  6. Hi , would anyone have a spacing diagram for this telecompressor ..
  7. I have decided to split if enough interest Celestron Edge HD 8” OTA with vixen Dovetail and original accessories all boxed & new .. £830 (scope used but like new ) Celestron 0.7x converter boxed .. £230 Celestron T adapter , new and boxed £25 Moonlite CHL2.5” dual speed Focuser for 8” Edge with Aluminium knob kit . £360 Astrozap aluminium dew shield for Celestron Edge , with Aluminium Cap with original Box . £110 Primaluce Lab 495mm Losmandy dovetail with curved mounting blocks for 8” Celestron C8 C9.25 C11 ,Edge HD 800, 925 ,1100 Meade SC and ACF 8” scopes £112 . postage extra ..
  8. Depends on your distances... I know you can get boosters for USB cables , I tried one option with Long Ethernet cables ,it worked for some of the equipment but others bits did not want to connect and it obviously introduces more connections into the signal path .. so more chance of damp and corrosion in the connectors ... I decided to keep cables short and solve the problem as above .. remotely connecting to the computer in the box .. and it operates just like a normal laptop.. SGpro ,iOptron commander , PHD2 , Cart du ceil , are all loaded onto it .. as per normal .. anyways .....I’m sure everyone else has a different method and ideas .. ..
  9. I decided to not leave my laptop outside , so I brought a Tiny Levono Computer and put in into a case that can me left outside unaffected by frost and damp It’s in that orange case . The case is foam lined and I cut ventilation holes in either side , and arranged the foam to hold the computer but allow air to flow through for cooling .. works a treat . eBay , I paid £89 for mine .. it was a Levono Thinkcentre M93p Intel i5 120 GB SSD , 4 GB RAM ....
  10. Ok thanks , but it’s either all going , or all staying ..
