  1. That, Sir, is truly wonderful.
  2. Found..... tried...... and decided i need a proper mount. Live and learn.
  3. Bump for a Skyguider Pro ......... like the one that was listed and sold last night.
  4. Fantastic images @Nigella Bryant, the 3rd image with the aurora halo is very impressive.
  5. PM sent ref 'Wanted' post. https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/370611-wanted-ioptron-skyguider-pro/
  6. Wanted - Ioptron Skyguider Pro Before i bite the bullet and purchase new, anyone got a complete example they would consider rehoming to sunny Devon?
  7. Cracking images there Gina, good to know its possible in our locale, from a fellow Blackdown dweller.
  8. Thanks for the reply @rickwayne. Would you then crop/zoom in post processing to bring the target to fill the frame?

    Hello from Devon

    Thanks Nigella, i am hoping that the search function should answer a lot of my newbie questions, although there is nothing better than speaking to someone who has travelled the same journey.

    Hello from Devon

    Total newbie here looking to explore the 'dark art' of astrophotography. I have zero knowledge of astronomy, so I'm sure I'm set for a steep learning curve, but i will embrace the journey. Nugs
