  1. Very good and thank you both for the explanations. Reif
  2. What astronomy software do you use to close the loop when using auto-focus, image capture, and processing? Thank you, Reif
  3. Thanks Wim! That makes perfect sense. I was just now watching a YouTube video about mounting it to the scope and using the software that comes with it. I'll give your suggestion a try once I receive it.
  4. Thank you for the welcome, I'm already having fun
  5. I am waiting for my ZWO EAF-5V to be delivered tomorrow. I am currently using the Celestron Focus Motor (on my NexStar Evolution 9.25 SCT but can only use it manually (not auto-focus) to focus in BackYardEOS and ASTAP. Due to the fact we have cloudy and smokey skies, I wanted to test it out the ZWO EAF-5V focusing on close objects (tops of trees, buildings, etc.). My question is, can I use it to auto-focus on close objects or do I have to do it manually? Thank you everyone, Reif
  6. Thank you all for the warm welcomes!
  7. Hi, I'm a new member and I have the following equipment: Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25" SCT Celestron Motorized Focuser ZWO EAF-5Volt Celestron StarSense HyperStar V4 Celestron GPS Celestron Wedge Canon EOS 7D Optolong L-PRO EOS-C H Alpha 7nm Filter Backyard EOS ASTAP I bought most of this the end of 2019 and added the HyperStar and ZWO EAF-5Volt this summer. I love this scope and have been working to automate most of the process as I am 66 and need all of the help I can get. Wonderful views and am just getting into EAA and DSO. It's a little heavy when setting up but I highly recommend it! Just a newbie's two cents. Reif
  8. Hi Everyone From A Newbie! Very glad to find this site and to be here. Hope to learn many things from you. I also hope to contribute as I start taking planetary and DSO images.
