  1. I've been into astrophotography for a couple of years. We here in the UK arnet blessed with clear skies. I have gone months between imaging sessions. The cost of decent equipment and filters is expensive. There isnt a glut of strong nebula targets that make for seriously good imaging so when youve done the ones that matter its back to repeating shots rolled in different glitter. So my question is why bother?
  2. I use a leisure battery and one of the charger conditioners and my battery is 85 AH, so Im never without juice. I can power everything including dew heaters and laptops with no problems.
  3. I know folk who use pocket warmer pouches taped to the telescope.
  4. does anyone know why Im getting this? Ive uninstalled reinstalled and still having this problem. Its driving me nuts...
  5. This hobby is so frustrating. By the time I was setup last night it was 12 midnight before I was imaging due to PHD issues. Ive tried everything from fresh install to literally not using it at all. Run a diagnostics and its come back with 17 issues. Can anyone tell me whats going on? ASCOM.Diagnostics.0845.070010.txt
  6. I have the ASI294MC Pro, you can select how much you want to go below ambient.
  7. I have a TEC camera and thought of doing the same. But dosent the temp have to match the light frames? How much can they differ?
  8. Does anyone here start off doing there dark frames whilst sorting out there guiding?
  9. If I can tap into your knowledge pool please. I have an Esprit 100ED. Im trying to connect a 2 inch filter between the camera spacers and field flattner. Now the spacers off my ASI294 I can screw onto the end of the flattner but connecting the filter to the field flattner seems a smidge too small. I didnt want to go down the route of a filter draw. Is there any other way of doing this?
  10. Can anyone remember the last clear sky? I purchased an Esprit 100 weeks ago and not had a clear sky since.
  11. I'm at the end of my teather with my Nightshift app. It's rarely correct. What do you all use on Android?
  12. I'm having to travel to dark sky sites so I will be breaking it down each outing. Has anyone figured how to pack this away without taking off the tube rings?
  13. I just didn't have confidence in it with the issues I had. Like I said I should have gone new from the start. It isn't like it was a cheap scope, cheap enough to run with the niggles. Finding out these had collimation problems didn't help and SW pulling launch. BTW did you ever have the collimation modded in any way so the scope held it?
  14. Yes, when spending your hard earned you want it right. I was having too many trips to his unit and feeling like I was an inconvenience. Best all round I think, I should have gone new at the start.
  15. I've returned the scope after a few issues that didn't inspire my confidence. Just waiting for the refund to land. Purchased the Esprit 100ED and waiting for a clear sky.
