  1. Is that 135 @ 35mm so a 70mm ish on a micro 4/3 with 2x crop factor?
  2. I'm looking at getting an old OM lense for my OMD EM 10 M/43 camera with the intention of mounting it on my azgti to start learning some astrophotography. There is a 80_200 zoom on ebay that would give 160_400 zoom on the m43. Would this be suitable? Or should I look for a prime, if so what FL. Cheers Steve
  3. Thanks will take a look
  4. Budget about 250 and i have the AZGTI.
  5. 127 Mak and soon to purchase a 130 pds. Is the Zwo 224 or 290 the best option for my scopes Want to do both DSO live stacking and lunar/ planetary Cheers Steve
  6. Thanks but will be too big for my AZGTI. Steve
  7. Wanted 130 PDS OTA. Can collect between west Cornwall and Bridgwater. Thanks Steve
  8. Hi has the OTA sold? Thankd Steve
  9. Update: I managed to find an old windows laptop in a cupboard. Amazingly it booted up but the hdd is dying. iv'e ordered a new battery and a 500gb SSD and will install Probably Win 10. After some messing about with astro tools im going to buy the ZWO ASI 224 colour camera and a 0.5 focal reducer. What are your opinions on the camera? Cheers Steve
  10. Looking for tips on kit to build an EEA setup. I have a Sw 127 mak on azgti. Android tablet and mac pc. I would like to live stack to see colour on planets and brighter DSO's With the availability of software should I get a windows laptop? So which camera and what software should I be looking at? I always prefer free software. Cheers Steve
  11. Thanks for the reply's so far. It has certainly given me avenues to research to further my understanding of what I am trying to achieve. Every day is a school day as the saying goes.
  12. Hi, Anybody have any first hand experience of the Asiair package or the Revolution R2. They are both similarly priced. I would like to be able to see realtime images of DSO's on my Tablet or the R2s screen that show colour in Nebula etc. Anybody have any thoughts on either package. Thanks Steve
  13. I have Opticron 11x70 great compromise for weight, magnification and aperture. Easily hand held but much better on an telescopic monopod with a ball head,
