  1. Let us know what your tracking RMS is like. Hoping for around 0.8 RMS with good polar alignment.
  2. SOLD Used twice then upgraded mount. This is the better cable that does not change com ports each time you plug it in. So you don't have to keep reconfiguring and finding the com port. Works with Windows 10 drivers automatically for me. Paid £38 including postage. Yours for £25 including recorded delivery. Can post tomorrow morning.
  3. Just arrived 5 minutes ago and I looked at the forecast and got this
  4. Hi David good questions 55m scope fits so 60mm guide scope or above would be preferable.
  5. The Enhanced Moonfish® 30mm 80° ULTRAWIDE is a very serious wide-angle 2" eyepiece. The eyepiece has five elements of fully multi-coated (FMC), high-index glass, with a high light transmission, allowing your telescope to be pushed to its magnitude limits.at a very affordable price. Contrast and correction is good for very low powered wide-angled viewing of those larger deep sky objects. Concealed beneath the new rubber eyecup, great for those cold winter nights, you'll find a thread to accept M49 camera adaptors. Perfect for afocal camera imaging with a wide variety of film and digital cameras. Main features Focal length: 30 mm Apparent Field of View: 80° Fully multi-coated Barrel: 2" / 50.75 mm Rubber eyecup M49 camera thread Elements: 5 elements in 3 groups Eye relief: 22 mm Field stop: 40.8 mm Weight: 570g (1.2lb) Length: 114 mm (4.5") Boxed unused £85 including 2nd class recorded delivery
  6. HI they were bought from new, they have not been modified they are just over 1.5 inches long if that helps. It's probably because mine arent screwed right in like there's. Heres another picture of them screwed in. Hope that helps.
  7. I never got round to using these. Complete with nylon tipped screws to protect your hardware. Quality metal rings from ADM. They are £80 plus postage new. https://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/adm-guide-scope-ring-set.html I can get them in the post tomorrow morning. £48 inc Postage 2nd class recorded delivery.
  8. SOLD I have been extremely happy with this mount but it's time to upgrade to something more substantial. It was Hypertuned by Dark Frame Optics a few years ago including belt drive and ceramic bearings. Cost £508 I sent back the mount late last year for a checkup and service and is warrantied for another 18 months. I am asking £895 £795 (for quick sale) on this mount which I think is a fair price. Collection only because of the weight and size. Regards David
  9. I will take a look right now many thanks.
  10. Just had another play maybe too much but I think I have more colour
  11. Thanks for the info. I will try longer exposure again. Having huge problems with all these Elon Musk satellites wizzing across my frames so thats why I shortened them. I am wondering how to get more colour in photshop do I increase the saturation?
  12. Unforunately I don't have the expertise to post process. It a little dull. I think the data is ok though.
  13. Just a quick 20 minute post process in photshop. 50 x 45 second Lum 30 x 60 second Red 30 x 60 second Green 30 x 60 second Blue Gain 75 Offset 15
  14. Thanks for the reply. That makes sense. I shortened it by 0.5mm and it made it worse. I need to put that spacer back on and add another Thanks for the help.
  15. Hi here is an example of where my elongated stars are from the direction they are going can you tell if I need to shorten or lengthen the back space? Cheers David
