  1. Was actually looking at videos on you tube looks easy enough to do and would only cost £10 - £15 instead of new £35 cable thats to long, as long as the shorter length won't affect it in any way I'll probably look at going down that route.
  2. I know lynx do a 1m one which is still quiet long but sure I heard a while back that they have to be the correct type or you can risk over loading your mount
  3. I'm looking to mount my new mini pc to the side of my HEQ5 mount, can any one recommend a short FTDI EQDIR USB cable that will work? I currently have a 6ft lynx cable from flo but need a short cable to keep my rig up neat shortest they do of that type is 1m. I'm looking for preferably less than 2 ft.
  4. Yeah done some playing around with my dslr, looks like I'll have to shoot jpeg as raw only gives me 5 shots before stalling out, just need to make it easy to keep it aligned so just before it passes I can hit the interverlometer with out having to align it manually
  5. I'm looking to do an iss luna capture. Whats the easiest way to get up and running tracking the moon? I have a heq5 w/ 80ed. ill have to travel an hour to the spot where I can capture it but don't want to be polar aligning setting sky points up etc etc if I can help it, can I get away with aligning to the moon and just using phd2 to track it Long enough to do what I need to do?
  6.
