  1. Iv just tried my new set using the atik 314l+ with a 200mm lens, got it doubled up on a dual mount bar with a finder guider, iv got a red dot finder with shoe only not sure where I can put it, want it to be mounted permanently, rather than taking it on and off, any suggestions with the set up iv got?
  2. stunning image, so crisp one of the best full moon images iv seen in ages.
  3. Got afew solar images (thursday) only had a chance to add the prominences today.
  4. Just read that link. Very interesting is this a cheaper option than a PST mod?
  5. Iv already taken about 2mm of it, but I didn't want to take any more off it as I would have to then drill and tap a new thread for the focuser retaining screw.
  6. Lovely image! Surprised you got so much in. Hard to get a image showing too much of the milky way up here in Scotland.
  7. Brilliant images! If you don't mind me asking what is a quark??
  8. Sorry just read you equip signature, thought it was a dedicated cak scope!
  9. Lovely shot, what can you see through the eyepiece of these scopes are they as good as a PST? They seem hard to come by these days.
  10. Tilt adapter? How much do they cost?
  11. Thanks, rings did appear when I tuned the PST a certain amount. The ASI120 didn't focus in the PST will need to machine more off the eyepiece holder.
  12. Just downloaded fire capture it's abit clear as mud to operate compared to sharp cap, where abouts is this option for reducing the USB traffic?? Can seem to find it?
  13. Thanks for the advice will try that, had it down to the smallest window, was getting 170 odd frames per sec, impressive stuff!
  14. Just tried it on my 2 year old desk top it runs flawlessly, my laptop has a 1.7Ghz processor I thought this would fast enough?
  15. Also looked at the playback it's freezes a lot, looks very jumpy?
  16. Iv just received my ASI120mm mono cam, just trying it out and the playback through sharp cap seems to break up every so many frames? Anyone have a similar problem?? It's like I get interference flash up every few seconds?
  17. Stunning images as per usual olly, I've got the micro focuser rings filters etc and TS filter drawer I'm just shortening a dual mount bar to fit my finder guider at the moment and clamp for the lens no use using a giant dual mount bar for such a light set up, interested in the mask though. How did you make it?
  18. Hello, im just getting my rig togeather for using my Atik 314L+ with my canon 200mm F2.8 lens, i see many lovely narrowband images taken with this set up, im just wandering what image i might expect from normal LRGB filters using this set up? Anyone tried?
  19. i have an sw80ed , and have ordered a upgrade crayford focuser for it, is it just a matter of unscrewing the bolts and fitting then refitting the bolts? or is there alignment issues?
