  1. Sorry for the delay in responding...I do intend to up date this site as regularly as is possible. Nice to hear you enjoyed the visit...we shopuld plan a SGL trip to the obbsy
  2. This is seriously bothering me too. My first option was the paramount ME, but they have stopped production until september 2012...aarrghhh and then AP go and stop the 1200..after I have just raised the funds for the 16" LX and a new mount. Needed them both in place for BBC 4 filming at the observatory in August..Now Im stuck for the mount. The problems buying second hand kit are obvious and my funders would string me up if I did...the 1600 seems overkill for what I need it for and at a tasty price too.
  3. well done.. I remember my first object I ever imaged,,,,welcome to the dark side
  4. Hi All, Gary Fildes here, been getting nudged to make an appearance so I fully intend to. Lost touch with a lot of my old friends and value the wealth of knowledge out there...so Hi:hello2: Im back...
  5. Hi All, Gary Fildes here from Kielder Obs...I have been getting nudgedd quite a lot to make an appearance on here, so I have, anyway I am considering a good "live" camera for the observatory and would like to know what the consensus is for one against the other. My thoughts are the Mintron 12V6HC-EX -or- the Watec 120N. The Watec looks and sounds far superior but at three times the price I would expect this...any thoughts..it would be used with a 16" Lx on a paramount ME. Or a 100mm triplet, piggybacked on the LX
