  1. Very sad news I never had chance to read any of his threads as I am to new on here , my deepest condolences to his wife and family
  2. Brilliant images I hope I can get some this good I have the same camera but a bresser 127/1200
  3. Welcome to SGL I started with the same scope had fun but soon upgraded
  4. Still great shot Nigella love your images
  5. Hi the ones that normally come with the scope are not good I upgraded mine to a top of the range SW one that allows 99% of the light into the eyepiece , if your worried about the screw marking the eyepiece get the 2 inch one and fit a self centering eyepiece holder like the baader click lock
  6. The bresser is tight image around the Sun spots you can see the granular surface , the newt image is a little smaller it shows the Sun spots but harder to see granular surface , but I found it you use a phone to take a photo the newt works better , still working to get images from refractor using a phone or the ASL224MC
  7. Hi I use my bresser 127/1200 with a Lacerta wedge and continuum filter and the views are great I would love to try a Lunt wedge to see what it better I also use my 8 inch Orion optics Newtonian with a Kendrick full aperture filter and that also works well , just love solar viewing
  8. Mine does the same thing I just clear PAE then after 3 star alignment I do PAE training on 3 stars then I find it hits it's targets mine is on a tripod so I have to polar align every time
  9. Hi it's a great image for a phone
  10. Hi using a phone with out a mount is so hard so get a phone to eyepiece mount , depending on what phone you have there are loads of apps to control the phone camera , Samsung phones have the voice control so this stops the camera shake as you take the photo other makes may also be able to do this only had samsungs
  11. Hi I had a go the other day but my wedge was at the caravan so used the VX8L and Kendrick filter but seeing was not good so a poor effort with smart phone
  12. Polar alignment pro does everything from levelling the mount to polar alignment it also has day time polar alignment which is fairly good it's only a tiny bit out but I find using it day time then check at night Polaris is not out by much it will 100% be in the polar scope ready for fine adjustment
  13. Hi the polar apps are just for the polar scope alignment , no synscan needed
  14. Hi take a look at polar alignment pro it has different one here are the one it has
  15. Brilliant images the Sun is amazing
