  1. Loving this scope so far. Got 15 x 180s subs on the Veil nebula before clouds rolled in. What a difference this is over the 3 x Esprit 80's. Bright stars are clean and defined not like the awful pinched stars from the Esprit. This is a screen grab from NINA. Need to do a little tweak to the backfocus spacing as stars are slightly elongated in the corner. The built in rotator is fantastic too, so easy to operate.

  3. Hi I need a suitable outdoor cover for my HEQ5. Initially it will be on my tripod but soon on a pier. I want to leave it out but need something that will protect it properly? Thanks

  6. Hi I need a 2" filter to go in my Powermate. Camera is an ASI224 MC Pro, scope is Edge HD 8". I was thinking just a basic UV/IR but I hear lots of good things about the Baader - https://www.baader-planetarium.com/en/baader-neodymium-(moon-and-skyglow)-filter.html Is this worth the extra over a UV/IR filter? Any other options? Mainly for imaging Venus/Saturn/Jupiter & Mars (if the UK ever see clear night skies again!) Thanks Andy

    Pocket Powerbox

    Long shot, anyone got one to sell?
  8. Looks good, does the Nano allow auto control with a thermistor attached as well?
  9. Hi Looking for a cheap single channel dew controller for my planetary setup. I have the strap already so just need the controller. I believe controllers are PWM? Would any of these suit? It'll be run from a basic 12v distribution, probably fused powerpole. I don't want to spend out on another Pocket power box. https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=12V+PWM&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 I'm pretty skilled with soldering and wiring so no issues with a DIY solution. Cheers Andy
