    Zwo efw 7x36mm filter wheel

    Yeah had this new the filters fit into the seat and stand above outer edge so cant move with the gasket fitted on top would have been better if they had made the gaskets to sit flush with each other rather than one edge on top of other gasket,i did ask zwo and all i got back was instructions from there site that i don't think they have updated to this filter wheel yet as the image for their gaskets don't match the ones i have.
  3. Hi can anyone confirm that i have my baader lrgb filters secured properly as i see with other zwo filter wheels they supply small fibre washers to secure them into the seat of the filter wheel all i had with this one was a pack of gaskets to witch you can see i have used to secure the filters in place,thing is one edge of the gasket overlaps the other cant see this causing a problem whats everyone think.

    IAS 2018

    I bought a ZWO ASI 1600MM Pro from widescreen centre saving over £120 also a zwo efw 8x1.25 or 7x36mm filter wheel saving £30 i see its men't to have a reliable Japanese steeper motor but strange thing is sticker on motor says china.Anyway my debit card has now done a runner.But i need filters (come back.)
  5. Thanks Alan so your saying their is no point balancing the channels with linearfit before dbe i should just link rgb channels so i can can see the image.
  6. Hi when I have created my dslr rgb master in pixinsight I like to split the rgb channels and use the lowest noise value and use linearfit to balance the channels,But should I first do a rgb working space to my master rgb before the linearfit process or do you use rgbworking space before making a luminance mask,or do I miss understand what rgb working space does.

    NEQ6 Dec play.

    Hello i have been trying to get my worm drives better on my skywatcher neq6 pro mount i have followed astro babys guide and have got the Ra adjusted with out any problems but when i run the same method on the Dec axis and then test the rotation using the motor it starts to lock up just quarter the way around so i adjusted were it started locking up witch seems to have fixed it only thing now is that the gears are quite noisy unlike the Ra,Could the problem be that i need to maybe lossen off the worm end float when it started locking up on my first try? Has anybody had the same issue.

    Qhy8l last night

    When I sent mine was about that price problem was they couldn't find a problem with it so give sensor a clean and returned it think it was about £50 to return,played up again winter time with problem on images so afraid to say it was thrown in cupboard, id wasted so much time and money sending to Bern and qhy that I have gone back to my trusty 450d this camera seems to be so unreliable and don't get used that much with our weather.

    Also there is confusion about the offset setting it used to be between 500 and 1000 mine always gave the message offset to low at those vaules using ezcap,In the latest instructions anywhere between 500 and 3000 is ment to be ok.
