    Budget well and truly blown now !

    Cheers for the heads up I’m sure I have some old ankle weights nocking about. It will be fun putting it all together but that’s part of it. I’m on nights all this week so can’t get out anyway but will look at it all in the daylight before I even attempt to go out when it’s dark. Cheers, Dan.
  4. I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you guys this can put slight pressure on the wallet or purse but coming back to this hobby I set myself a budget of 1k for a mount and scope which I initially thought was reasonable. So two weeks later I have blown that and I haven’t even bought a scope yet. A Canon 1100D used, HEQ5 slightly cheaper from FLO, Nivana power pack, a copy of making every photon count and a few bits and now my old pc has died. Although I have a Mac I wanted to go windows as there’s a lot more options software wise so a half decent laptop is today’s purchase. I need a ball and socket now to mount the 1100D on the mount so a little more to spend. Anyhow's it will be all worth it when I get out there and start having a play and start climbing the steep learning curve that lays ahead. Hopefully I haven’t jinxed the sky’s for anyone.

Or am I better paying a little more for this https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223015461192 or this https://www.camerajungle.co.uk/products/12878/canon-ef-50mm-f-1-8-ii i have searched on here for the Yongnuo but can’t really find much so any advice is welcome.
  7. As per the pm interested in the ed80

    1100d and a few bits. Now to find a heq5 as there appears to be no uk stock till the new year ! and then make my mind up on either a ED80 or 130P-ds.

    Kind words, cheers
  12. Taken a good 8 + years ago with my Meade etx90 and lpi. Can’t remember the details but a fair few images taken and stacked in RegiStax.
  13. As I have just rekindled my interest I managed to dig out a few images I captured with my little etx90 and the Meade lpi. I can’t remember how many images I got and stacked in RegiStax. They are far from the quality of images seen on here but I was really happy with them at the time. DA082AA4-B03D-47EC-8A8D-29590F3CBF74.bmp
