  1. Thanks for the replys everyone, I will play with the distance between the reducer and chip and see what happens
  2. im imaging with a celestron 925 and a Canon 6D, im getting really bad vignetting when using the Celestron focal reducer, I thought it maybe the full frame camera causing it, but I tried a crop sensor lastnight and Im getting the same result, It seems fine when I remove the reducer, so does anyone know is their something I can use to fix this, a different reducer of something else that will correct it, and let me still use the reducer Thanks Derek
  3. does anyone know if a 2" filter will thread into a celestron 6.3 reducer/corrector ? cheers
  4. thanks, I have the instructions,, but still no good,
  5. I got it in November, only a few months ago, tis a disaster, ill got it from FLO, ill ask them what they thing, a long shot id say, ill probably contact starlight and see
  6. ive tried this, but the problem is I cant separate the focuser unit from the nut or stop nut, I put a spanner on the stop and try and lossen it, but it just spins around, its like the focuser wheel is not doing any thing, its a real mess
  7. ahh, I didn't explain it properly, sorry, its the starlight micro focuser, not the supplied one that came with it
  8. thanks for the reply, I have the focuser wind back all the way until it stops, how do I remove the outside sleeve?
  9. anybody? the focuser isn't working, and I duno how ill get it off the scope any help or advice would be very welcome
  10. Hello, my micro focuser suddenly got hard to turn while out observing lastnight, I took out the three screws so I could remove the focuser, but I cant get it off now, when I hold the nut and the focus knob, it just keeps spinning, any one have this problem before, or any ideas how to get it off cheers
  11. just outside sligo town, west coast of Ireland
  12. thanks guys, ill take a look at the maxvision
  13. Im lacking eye pieces, and am looking at the Baader Hyperion set, and im curious for opinions here, should I get this set or just buy a few EPs to fill the gaps in my collection, I have a 25mm celestron, 16mm TV Nagler, 9mm TV Nagler I could buy two or three expensive EPS but thats as far as my budget will go, I would like one wide field EP, how would the 24mm Baader work using the 2" barrel,? these EPs come with a 1.25 and a 2" barels, is their any disadvantages to this.? or is an EP set at simply 2" better? I guess what Im trying to ask is should I buy this set or buy say a 7mm and 18mm x-cel, and a pentax or Televue 2" wide field any opinions and advise please cheers Derek
  14. clicklock it is, looks like a bettter one alright, thanks
