  1. I am the proud owner of a azgti mount. It works fine , but i was wondering:. Could i use both a v4 synscan handset and skysafari via wifi at the same time?.
  2. This is my setup paired with a azgti sw mount. Spot on gotos
  3. I owm a baader zoom mark iv. So far i have been using it with the standard 1,25" barrel. It also comes with an addional 2" barrel(photo). My sw startravel 120 can do 2" . Would it perform well in my scope, would i notice the diference? Thanks
  4. I own an azgti. With the right firmware you can do some imaging. The thing is i am considering buying a ccd camera. You do need a laptop to operate it , my guess???. I own a pc and a ipad pro, no laptop. What could i do? Thanks
  5. I own a sw startravel 120 achromat. CA is painful in Bright objects. But nice on DSOs. Its paired with a sw AZ5. Good, stable if you change the stock tripod
  6. If it wasnt for the fuc... moon (forgive me ohh you slaves of the goddess), weather now is even better. But the glare is too much. Next week rain all days. Damm
  7. Imaging?. Thats not my turf indeed. Seems to me an utterly difficult hobby and too expensive. I am only for visual. This is challengin enough for me
  8. The double cluster in perseus, thats really amazing. But not for a mak 127 (narrow fov). I prefer the startravel 120. Those are my two telescopes. Though the open clusters in cassiopea are my favourites. Little jewel boxes. The owl cluster,man, thats nice
  9. I fully intend to brace myself and go out in the cold. See ya fellas
  10. Here in spain. What we call cold. 13 degrees now.You are absolutely right.
  11. Seriously thanks a lot. I guess I wanted to justify myself . Its already cold outside
  12. And if we are thristy plenty of water, wisky would be better but
  13. Seriously, what kind of meanungfull observation can be done when the moon is nearly full?... Sorry if i sound like a nob nob
  14. Hi. Mu setup. Az 5 with sw stainless steel tripod, paired with a sw startravel 120. Yesterday night looking up at the zenith, cygnus. No vibration, smooth. Mind, you need a beberlach adapter to fit i to the tripod (not cheap ). If my experience helps you.
  15. Thank you all for your comment. Ihave a bortle 5 sky and i believe i dont need an optical finder so much. (Weight issues aside) .Finding aligment stars is very easy and my knowledge is good enough. The rigel is very light and useful.
  16. hi.the thing is i own a sw azgti mount paired with a mak 127. It came with a basic red dot finder. Do you think an optical finder would be better ? ?.i have a rigel quickfinder. Should i Use it for aligment stars and turn if off?. Or would i need optical finder to find objects further on?. I might add that accuracy seems to very good with the unit i got. My concern of course is the maks narrow fov Joaquin
  17. I am no handyman at all, and the idea of ruining the mount kills me. Besides i was fortunate to get a good unit, very accurate and reliable with gotos (others had less luck). Better off not pushing my luck. Thanks and sorry for my belated answer
  18. Sorry. No, no success at all. Tried with a scredriver but it wont give. Thank you very much anyhow
  19. I cant say i fully understood you (sorry my bad) but grasped a bit. Could you please tell me what are my options, in pratical terms ? Other than openning the pandora box? Joaquin
  20. I am already shaking. No way am i going that1
  21. Thanks for yor help. The thing is i had the mount atached to the extension pillar and it worked flawlessly. Then i bought the sturdier tripod, wich need adaptor to fit mount. Opening the mount scares the hell out of me. Clumsy me. Given that i can use it as it this, (it turns) i shall leave it alone. Thank your for yoir kindness.this community is awsome
  22. Sorry to bother you again. If i try this , i mean if i put in the fridge for a while, do you reckon it could damage any inner part, circuits wifi. ?sorry if i sound too newbie. I mean last week was relly hot here and mount was near window. Who knows?
  23. Tried it several times but no, it wont work
