  1. Quite enjoying wide field imaging at the moment, so pointed the camera towards the Sadr ( Gamma Cygni ) region last night. started clouding over at 1:30 am so only managed 1.5 hours of good data, but really happy with the result, really nice field of view including the crescent nebula at the bottom. So this is 6 x 15 min subs in Hydrogen Alpha, with the Atik383L CCD & my old Pentax 135mm SMC @f5.6. Considering this lens was full of fungus and had it to bits for cleaning its not doing too bad is it Now is using an EQ8 overkill for imaging with a 135mm lens LOL, and guiding with my 5" triplet at 950mm FL? Lee
  2. Snap, thats how mine is going too
  3. There are some black cores to some of the stars on the left image Olly. edit, actually the right image has them also but not as dark Lee
  4. Yes ive spoken to them about it, The new one will have more back focus to allow use with DSLR, as the original version needed 34mm spacing so mk 2 should be 44mm or more. Performance will be the same, not better or worse. Also it will be cheaper they said aiming at $99. as im using ccd the original would have worked for me but looks very unlikely I will manage to source one either new or used, so will have to wait until the autumn unless I end up buying a different scope before then. Lee
  5. Probably, i would get a new one, but everywhere is out of stock and now they are making a mk2 version but is delayed due to the pandemic, latest eta the autumn.
  6. WITHDRAWN Long shot but does anyone have a Starizona EvoFF field flattener they would like to part with. Cheers Lee
  7. Looking good Carole, i prefer 2nd one best. lee
  8. you dont mention what equipment you are using, camera & scope etc? Lee
  9. Im more confused now, if its £400 extra for the tri pier, then are you saying you want 1750 for the mount alone? thats more than new price. Im guessing thats not what you mean I think the wording is just a little confusing
