  1. Hi Whipdry I'm a recent new owner of a mesu mk1 and loving my test doddle so far! Untill now been using indi drivers on kstars and Ekos but rig up this mount with point xp and NINA. I thought there was no indi drivers available for sitech, do you know of anyone who confirms these indi drivers work? Another question, can anyone send links to a good sitech controller 2 guide cable to usb I can use in the future for PhD 2? (or similar) TIA! (now back to the R. O. R Build!)
  2. Wow good luck with the little newt! How have you been getting on with the mount? Curious to see what your long clamp screws look like and how your ROR works. Im thinking about adapting a standard pent roof shed to roll off (and hopefully roll back again) Wayne

    Yes, it's awesome! Don't regret changing from my zwo mono. Now paired with the apex 0.65 reducer I am able to finish more target projects! With half decent results in small amounts of exposure time... πŸ“ΆπŸ‘

  6. Ah I see.. I'll have to help my dad get that sorted.. He'll fall in love with it all again then! πŸ˜„
  7. Hi Tony.. This interests me as my dad has a newt and his bad stars have put him off imaging all together at the minute... Would the pizza base method need cutting down to a ring to cover the clamps? Then how is it held in front in position? Many thanks Wayne
  8. Thanks Steve, I sunk most of "orions" time into M78 to try and get as much signal collected as poss with the clear nights we had! πŸ“ΆπŸ‘

    Hey Tony, much too late reply I know! Didn't see this on here.. Still getting used to the site and its layout! Nice shot of M33 with just 40x5 min subs! A few more subs and pumping the colour saturation I tiny bit more will give you some better colour rendering I recon? Tough times for all at the minute and do hope you are well.. Wayne

    A stab at HaRGB. Modest data at 1.2hrs ha 1.2hrs integrated RGB Pixinsight and finalised in gimp Messed up star reduction settings a bit but its OK.

  15. Really useful review, thanks... I too need to cut down on cables and sort out spaghetti junction! Worried my hungry 4amp qhy camera, mount and dew heaters and 3amp raspberry pi might be a bit much for the ppb?? πŸ€”πŸ‘€
  16. Hi guys Can anyone identify which control box this is? Is it focusmaster? And does it run off robofocus driver in Indi lib as I cannot get a successful connection (in indi within ekos) I bought a robofocus motor with this control box second hand. I have faith with seller that hardware works as should. I've tried other cables and USB ports too. The software (k stars) I use does do port search when connecting equipment.. Any help appreciated Wayne
  17. Thank you James ill see if I can sort something out like that πŸ‘
  18. Hey guys.. Is a HFR of(minus) - 1.000 possible? As this is what my image statistics say on my k stars software It also says my SNR is varying 0.682 - 1.5? Any interpretations are welcomed? Cheers guys
  19. Thanks for the reply, yes I've dealt with Jasem and tested some updates for him in the past, he has been outstanding at developing and supporting our community I think you'll agree! πŸ˜€ I'm on the lookout for a mono lodestar as I thought it was a well reported cam to use in this setup with pi and Ekos etc.. So I'm glad to hear you get stable and reliable use with yours too! They are quite pricey new though aren't they! πŸ€” Is there a more affordable alternative that you know of.. Even tho I'd prefer sx lodestar as it is supposed to be at parfocal focus off the bat, inside my sx OAG filterwheel...
  20. Just read about your issues, I've had similar issues with the new version of kstars.. Where filter wheels spin while kstars initiates a mer flip and other weird stuff.. Is this bugs in kstars that's being addressed right now does anyone know?.. πŸ€” Tried port assist in indi tab but its greyed out... Doesn't open for me...
  21. Hi there, I'm a simple stellarmate original rasp pi owner.. (so not even rasp pi 3+ or whatever its called) I run kstars on the pi.. With indi to connect and control my equipment. Really love it as only use a tablet screen for imaging all night.. One thing tho.. How do you get on with guiding? And what guide cam do you use? I stupidly use a color altair mx224c and at full resolution and even at half resolution I get exposure timeout messages... Is this because the ram and cpu performance struggles or the cameras tech difficulties? I'm keen to know guide cameras other "on site" not home obsies pi users use!?! So anyone out there hit me! πŸ˜…πŸ‘ Waynescave YouTube me: waynescave
