  2. Thank you ! nothing huge I'm going to start with a medium refractor
  3. What is a good tracking mount to start with for astrophotography? My main goal is that it be portable and reasonably priced. I was looking at the heq 6 pro but that's at the top end of my budget for the mount. I'm sure this question has been asked quite a bit! Thanks in advance and clear sky's Ken
  4. Welcome back and god bless you !

  10. hi all i have another rookie question. I was just watching a utube channel, astronomars where he used a non goto scope to take his photo's. The scope was a 10" dob.the photos were 30 40 1 to 5 sec exposures. I would lie to know how to do this without a tacking or goto mount ? thanks in advance Ken
  11. I have a apertura AD10" dob scope I live in mid Michigan, it gets cold up here ! Do I need to use a dew strap on my scope dew can be heavy up here,patio table can be very wet ?
  12. Hi all ! Last night seeing conditions were ok but I took my apertura ad 10 out for a spin. I'm new to astronomy and slowly learning this new hobby. The night started out well until I took my first view of Saturn and noticed my scope was not cooled off enough. So I waited a while longer and it still had not stabilized. I discovered the fan wasn't working so I solved that problem with a portable fan. I went on to view Saturn, which was ok. Then searched for andromeda and finally did, it was awesome! ! ! So goes my onward adventure into astronomy
