  1. Great image i did the same target with ha and 03 but when combined in pixinsight I'm struggling to get much blue,what camera,exposures lengths did you use?.
  2. Hi i have removed the scope from my celestron cpc800gps and would like to mount this on to my skywatcher neq6 pro mount any recommendations of what dovetail mount i need?.
  3. HI that's caused by the bright star at the edge of the sensor not a lot you can do except maybe flock the inside of the baffle tube and scope by that i mean line it with dark material available from first light optics.its the reducer reflecting the light back into the scope.
  4. I have created a master bias with pixinsight from my zwoasi1600mm pro temp was set at -20 and a exposure of 0 seconds total images 200,I created with image integration using linear fit sigma low 4000 and high 2000 then applying a superbias with 5 layers and applying a 24bit function does the super bias look correct with the dark patch on the right?.does everybody else's super bias look similar.
  5. Hello i have fitted a new zwo eaf automatic focuser to my williams optics star 71 and am struggling with how to set it up with sequence generator pro,surely you have to set when the focuser position is fully in and out does anybody no of a good tutorial written or video or have some settings to get me going.
  6. Hi i have a spare power supply ,Will i be able to run my new zwo eaf automatic focuser that requires 12v 0.5A or more to run it thanks?.
  7. I have the zwo asi 1600mm pro that now and again seems to dew up last night all went well till 3 this morning and clouds came over so i stopped imaging left camera running at -20 so i could take flats in the daylight but when i took them i could see a dew circle in the middle of the image so last nights images are now no good as i have had to take the camera off and bring into house so no flats.I see zwo sell a dew heater on there site but by looking at the image they have it fitted to they have a spacer attched to camera so wont rest on the dew heater my camera has the filter wheel screwed on
  8. Thanks Carole I will look back at some images I had from new I bought it new flo before they started checking them before dispatch.i seem to remember the images were always worse when we had frosty nights.
  9. Thanks all it does look like pinched optics would it be the element at the front of the scope that needs slightly lossening off or at the focusser end
  10. I have owned the williams optics star71 mk1 from new and never been happy with the star shapes is this what they call pinched optics? ic 1805_60sec_1x1_l_frame1.fit
  11. Hopefully sorted now manage to find the downloads installed but did get a error massage on first start up but working ok since i'm running on windows 10. thanks
  12. Hello please can someone help with what drivers i need to download for the first gen qhy5 camera i cant find it on the qhy site only for the version qhy5ll ,will the downloads work for this? also will it run on windows 10 thanks.
  13. I heard a group of kids talking about this a few weeks ago while shopping this will be one more nail in the coffin for reducing light pollution.
  14. Would be good to see a demo of version AF2 working with sgp if you ever get clear sky's.
  15. 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.
