  4. If you offer me one, please send me photos also, glass needs to be in perfect condition, unscratched
  5. You need to add another weight to balance the dec. I did it like this:
  6. A little update on this.... I made a custom DEC counterweight so my mount stays balanced in ANY position...this is extremely important Check it out Closeup view And full view Now, you can see here that the right side of my OTA is heavier then the left side, that's why my custom weight is on the left side on the main counterweight You can not balance that with just one weight, no chance, that's why you must add another weight, it needs to be on different axis. Because of this, my scope stays balanced in any position, and that is really important, guiding is now 0.6-0.7 arcsec with 12kg on the mount, i think that this is a really good result with AZ-EQ5 and this scope (fully loaded 115/800 triplet)
  7. Canon 5d mk2 is sold. Wo Star 71 reserved (buyer paid reservation so i guess that this is a finished deal) So far i sold: Canon 5d mk2 Wo star 71 Sigma 24-105 ART Geoptik mount bag Atik 490ex mono camera Astronomik CLS T2 filter ZWO filterwheel 5x1.25" Canon 1Ds Mark III 2" baader uv ir rejection Geoptik sct bag SMC Takumar 135mm Jupiter 135mm Still for sale: Canon TS-e 90mm - 480 plus shipping Ioptron- IEQ45 mount - 800 plus shipping Astronomik LRGB type 2c 1.25" filters - 120 plus shipping ZWO UV IR cut 2" -great uv/ir filter, no reflections - 30 plus shipping
  8. A few pics of William Optics Star 71 I used it with an aperture mask to make stars look tight, aperture mask was 62mm, i really did not experience any light loss that would affect my imaging time, stars greatly improved. Check out how the stars look on FULL FRAME https://www.astrobin.com/392572/B/
  9. Sigma 24-105mm ART sold.... So far i sold: Sigma 24-105 ART Geoptik mount bag Atik 490ex mono camera Astronomik CLS T2 filter ZWO filterwheel 5x1.25" Canon 1Ds Mark III 2" baader uv ir rejection Geoptik sct bag SMC Takumar 135mm Jupiter 135mm Still for sale: Canon TS-e 90mm - 480 plus shipping Canon 5d mk2 - 430 plus shipping Ioptron- IEQ45 mount - 800 plus shipping Astronomik LRGB type 2c 1.25" filters - 120 plus shipping WO STAR 71 - 5 element version - 800 plus shipping ZWO UV IR cut 2" -great uv/ir filter, no reflections - 30 plus shipping I can list all of these on ebay, but expect to pay higher price because ebay has really high fees (around 17% + paypal fee)
  10. I'm dropping LRGB filters price: now 120 pounds plus shipping, contact me for pricing charge.
  11. Disable Dec guiding and see where it drifts (north or south) then enable Dec guiding but just in one direction, opposite of the drift. That will solve your problem.
  12. Just a little update. I experimented with different type of grease and i think i found the best one so far, it is teflon based, sticky and handles high pressure really well - Weldtite TF2 Result of continous 25min guiding with 12kg of equipment : Guiding will improve when i build custom DEC counterweight, maybe i'll adjust DEC worm again
  13. I am using DIY usb 3.0 Sony imx290 chip with 330mm focal length scope (TS optics 50mm f6.6) Under 1 arcsec performance with 12-14kg of equipment on mount
