  2. For Sale Atik EFW2 Motorised Filter Wheel. Item is in full working order. 7x 36mm (unmounted) carousel fitted. Hex keys, O-rings, screws and washers for filter mounting included. 2" Adapter T2 connection on camera side. There are no cables included in this sale Reason for sale. Moving to a QHY wheel. £235.00 Shipping included. I will accept payment via PayPal as a gift or Direct bank transfer.
  3. The 174 is not cheap but it has more uses than just as a guide camera. QHY version is even more expensive. If you can reliably hold the front section of the X2. I think machining is the neatest solution. I have the TS-Optics REFRACTOR 0.79x 3" ED Reducer which looks like the new version of the Altair reducer you mention. On the Altair site the two examples of spacing setup are both over the 51.5mm ideal spacing. So It might be worth giving it a try. Altair quote a 5mm tolerance. I wish all Reducers were so tolerant Initially I will fit the 268 to my TS 0.79, SW Esprit 100 combina
  4. Xsub What 130 Scopes (F number) and Reduces are you using? Have you used the scope and reducer combination already and found that 52mm works? As Starflyer has mentioned the ASI 174MM Mini would help as the BF is listed as 8.5mm. You mentioned the guide camera housing is (with blue ring) is 38mm deep. The ASI 174MM Mini is 40.7 from the nose to the start of the Fins. So that is getting close as well. But it should be ok I have a 268/FW and OAG on the way, I also I have as many probably will a Lodestar X2. So It looks like a change of guide camera may be coming. Regards

  9. Hi I almost sure you need the "GEM auto Flip Go To" ticked in Sitech. The mount should track passed the meridian up to your 2 degree limit. Or it will be flipped by NINA within that time. I may be wrong, give it a try. Graham
  10. Steve I read in the NINA forum that they are working towards Dome support. Weather is now supported and Switch's. I have not looked at what Weather does when it detects an unsafe condition. There is an option at the moment to run a script when the sequence finishes. So that could close the dome/roof. Unless I missed it I don't see an option to run a script at the beginning of a sequence. Graham
  11. Steve Mr Browns Dew Controller looks very interesting as well as a Myfocuser. On the MySQM project he recommends the Mega and not the Nano but the PCB appears to be for the Nano. Which Arduino did you use and what functions did you fit? Graham
