  1. Ive seen pictures on forums and in videos of people who have mounted a 1.25” filter to their zwo asi294mc pro cameras. They didn’t use the 1.25” nosepiece adapter. How can I achieve this? This is what I am on about. Image taken from Cloudy Nights
  2. Hi all, So I'm looking into getting my first dedicated astronomy camera and I was recommended the QHY 294C. I'm really new to CCD/CMOS cameras and I don't know if this camera is good as a first dedicated astro camera or not. I've seen loads of great reviews on the ZWO ASI 294MC and I saw that it used the same sensor as the QHY, so I assume the results would be similar?? Money is my main concern and the QHY is cheaper than the ZWO, but is it as good? My current setup is: Scope - Skywatcher 200pds Mount - Heq5 pro Canon 700d (unmodded) Would this be

  4. Hi, I've been doing astro with my Canon 700D for a few months now and it has been amazing and produced some really nice images. Im looking into getting my first dedicated astro camera, but have no idea where to begin. I would like to keep the price around £600-£800. Any suggestions?
  5. Hello, I am looking into upgrading my image train to include a coma corrector and a filter drawer. I am currently using a skywatcher 200pds and a Canon 700D. I am looking to add on a Baader MPCC Mark III coma corrector and a ZWO 2" Filter Drawer (M42 & M48) Can I achieve focus with this?
  6. Hah, no thanks! Is there a way to correct this without cutting up my scope?
  7. I've recently gotten a new Skywatcher 200pds and whilst testing it out i noticed this weird 'flare' around the star. My best guess is that it is something to do with collumation and because this is my first newtonian im new to this process. I don't know how to get rid of it. Anyone know and can help? Thanks
  8. Hi there :) Im a bit confused on whether or not i can plug my mount straight into the 12V cigarette lighter in my car. I use a Skywatcher HEQ5 pro. I need to travel away from home to observe an ISS lunar transit so i won't be able to use the mains powersupply that i normally use. Im thinking i could use the 12V plug that is supplied with the mount for this. Is it safe to do this? I don't want to try it in fear of damaging my mount. Hope you can help me out :)
