  1. I'm new to astronomy. Ive been at it about 1 month. My set up so far . Explorer Scientific Comet Hunter telescope and finder, Celestron CGEM ii mount, Canon M100 camera. Celestron Astromaster 114 eq with a Meade LX70 mount. My wife got a used Celestron 8i.
  2. Some pictures from this week with my new Canon M100. Great little camera. The only problem is you can't attach a cable release and the wireless remote works thru the 10s timmer. So I made a bracket to hold a mechanical cable release. Telescope is a Explorer Scientific Comet Hunter, Canon M100 camera and a Celestron CGEM ii mount. Pictures are single exposure. Taken from my front yard here in southern California.
  3. A couple pictures from 4:30pm and 7pm here in southern California.
  4. I decided to only make it motorized. I put a Sky-Watcher EQ6-R on layaway. Once I get it I will put the Explorer Scientific on it and use the LX70 for my camera and a different telescope.
  5. Thank you for helping! I ordered the Orion dual axis true track motor drive kit. Thank s to amazon prime it will be here tomorrow. I will post how it works.
  6. First picture from my first telescope. Explorer Scientific Comet Hunter on Meade LX70 mount. Taken with my Nikon D3S single exposure.
  7. I am new to Astronomy and I bought a used Explorer Scientific Comet Hunter and a Meade LX70 mount. I would like to add a motor drive and go to on it but Meade discontinued the motor drive. Doeas anybody know of a different motor drive and go to that will work on the LX70 mount?
