  1. No I don't think so will have to cut it off
  2. Hi everyone i have a astro engineering solar finder i think its been put together wrong ? The target is ment to be on back plate ?
  3. Hi and welcome to SGL 365astronomy do padded bags that you wear as a back pack so may be worth a look on there site
  4. I have a filter from my asl224mc that I can use I will double up with the continuum filter on the eyepiece
  5. Hi hope everyone is well , just a quick question I have a Lacerta solar wedge it said on the side a IR filter is recommended is that for imaging or visual it does not say
  6. Hi i use a telrad and cross hair eyepiece it works well together the eyepiece is only used for alginment
  7. Hi don't cut the bolts I have tried twice and even if you remove a small amount the bolt will be to short to adjust , it's a known problem that anything over 50degs can bend the bolts or they jump under the mount and jam Some of us have the upgrade bolts try and reduce the weight on the mount when you do adjustments to try and stop bolts from bending
  8. You were lucky I got mist and fog just as it was getting dark so could look at nothing , and all cloud today so looks like tonight is a no go too
  9. Hi go into handset there is a brightness for polar scope mine is on number 2 it's in utility section under polar scope led Sorry I don't do imaging like you but can't you do alignment using finder scope if that's zeroed in to the main scope , with mine I use an eyepiece then once on target pop camera in There is an app called synscanlnit2.1 gives you all the info for your hand set and polar position is
  10. Hi Martin welcome to SGL
  11. Thats interesting if i start to feel the same i will pop in a IR cut filter i have one for my asl224
  12. Yes johninderby rates it highly it's a nice design has a 2 inch rotation ring so you screw your polarizing filter in there then eyepiece goes in on top and your turn the ring to dim the image Last photo is the rotation ring with 1.25 adapter screwed on top

  14. Hi saw this I don't know if it will work for you https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/slredirect/picassoRedirect.html/ref=pa_sp_btf_aps_sr_pg2_1?ie=UTF8&adId=A08843853LW3TFV14ROEV&url=%2FMicroscope-Eyepiece-Adapter-Aluminium-Converter-default%2Fdp%2FB082XFQTCP%2Fref%3Dsr_1_33_sspa%3Fdchild%3D1%26keywords%3DSolar%2Bfinder%2Bscope%26qid%3D1610105973%26sr%3D8-33-spons%26psc%3D1%26smid%3DA1RUTJ6LGKEAH5&qualifier=1610106024&id=5325636908314025&widgetName=sp_btf
  15. Hi glad it now working well for you I love my HEQ5 pro , getting set up get quicker the more you do it , you may want to get the latitude upgrade bolts as the standard ones can bend in the mount
  16. One thing i found is using the zoom on a good seeing night once you have a good sharp image look at the zoom to see what setting its on this will give you an idea of what size of fixed focal length to add to your kit I use celestron omni they are not bad the omni barlow has bad reviews so keep clear celestron zoom which works well and a BST x2 barlow Johninderby has used the svony zoom ask him what he thinks of it has a big range on the zoom
  17. Hi the BST range gets good reviews and FLO had a offer on I don't know if they still have
