  2. My first ever Narrow band image.

    30 Minutes each of 5 minute exposures HA, O3 & S2 using Hubble Palette in Pixinsight. Gain I made a mistake should have been 200 but used 75 as I reloaded Nina and forgot to change it back from defaults :)

    The 03 filter is giving me halo's on big stars. I need to find out how to fix this (Either by hardware or post processing). I have some elongated stars on 2 sides. Caused mainly by the 5 minute exposures. Tilt maybe an issue? Guiding was 0.53 RMS.

  3. ADM MDS Series Dovetail Adapter.

    Attach accessories directly to a MDS series dovetail bar. Incorporates a split clamp design that grips the dovetail bar along the entire surface of the saddle and will not dent or scratch the dovetail bar. The dovetail clamp has a large “T” handle locking knob for tool free operation, spring loaded jaws, anodized aluminum and stainless steel construction.

     

    Handy for attaching other items to your bar. I bought these to mount a guide scope on top of my main scope but changed scope which already had attachments. These are normally £40 each.

    £40 the pair including postage. Paypal friends and family or you pay the fees.

  4. 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.

    Am I correct in thinking the screws have been cut down in length, as they are longer on the RVO picture....?

    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.

  6. 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
