  7. EQ5 mount for sale. Same mount head as an EQ5 but with an EQ3-2 polar scope and on a flimsier tripod. Fits EQ5/HEQ5 tripods. Needs a new polar scope, and has motors fit to RA and Dec axis. Can be upgraded with EQ5 goto to make it a lightweight astrophotography rig. Needs a regreasing but otherwise in good condition. Tripod has a dent in one of the legs, but doesn’t affect stability. Comes with one counterweight and hard case. £275 collection or local delivery (at cost) within 40 miles from Maidstone only. Buyer pays PayPal fees or bank transfer/cash on collection.
  8. I think the Seller needs to clarify they way it's been written, it appears the tripod comes with an HEQ5 for £275! My comment was more facetious in nature!
  9. Hi all, anyone have any experience of using the Monochrome function on new DSLR cameras with filters at all? I’d rather not have to buy a new camera when I can use the one I have, but I’m getting some CA even with a semi-apo filter. I have the startravel 120t and it is excellent for getting DSO shots (I managed a beautiful picture of M42, and a slightly out of focus M51, but everything was really clear except the stars), but I really want to get as much data as possible using LRGB or narrowband filters, and as said earlier, don’t really want to shell out for a new camera as well.
