  1. Has anyone had any luck finding a decent case for the Canon IS 15x50? The case that comes with the binocular doesn't give much protection and has no shoulder strap. Edit: I've started looking at camera bags which seem to have similar dimensions to the Canon's (19.3/8.1/15.2cm) The Camlink CL-CB21 Shoulder bag looks like a possible fit at a decent price.
  2. For sale my canon IS bins. Excellent condition, comes with eye guards, bag instructions, original box, and case. Requires 2 x AA batterys, push button on the top to stabilize your view, I have had some great times observing with these, but have decided to sell them to fund my imaging side of astronomy. Id prefer if someone collected them, but I can post at the risk of the buyer (would be sent special delivery). Im asking for £180.
  3. Hi all! It's been a while, since the weather has been really autumnal over here up until yesterday evening! So yesterday, clear sky, and I was up and out!! tried to catch some stars with my tripod and Canon 500D (still haven't bought any other gear. I made 10 lights (20 secs), 10 darks (20 secs) and 30 something bias (1/4000). No flats... Stacked them with DeepSkyStacker, and some post production in ACDSee... Playing with luminance and contrast, mostly. Nothing much. I'm happy Andromeda shows up in both of them! :-) I made another one of Orion, but the moon was bright and too close, so too much light over there... Next time... Tomorrow night I want to try and make some decent flats using the same setup... Any suggestions for this? Could the milky way be convinced to show itself using also the flats, or will it make no difference? Thanks for any reaction / suggestion! Gerhard.
  4. I just purchased a used canon 500D and will be modifying it soon to a full spectrum camera. I also want to cool it using a peltier module. i would highly appreciate anyone who can advice me on the design of a box. I live in a place with high humidity.
  5. I've modded (well tried too) my Canon 450D and removed the IR filter and its housing completely and as i put it back together these copper shim things fell out and i dont have a clue were they came from??? Ive tested the camera and it powers up then it wants me to input the date/time etc and if i press the shutter button, it goes into rapid fire mode and only stops when i switch the camera off AND remove the battery. As soon as i put the battery back in, its does the same again, powers up and asks me to input the date/time etc. Ive tried several times removing the back again and re-seating the ribbon cables but it doesnt cure anything. Im not sure what ive done wrong here, as ive modded my 350D with no problems but any help would be GRATEFULLY appreciated. :embarassed:
