  1. Hi All! I have guiding problem with the following guider setup: 9x50 finder + ZWO ASI 120mm mini + PHD2. The imaging scope is a 6' newtonian + canon dslr on a HEQ5, driven by a laptop via diy EQDIR cable. When the mount is set up and running correctly, polar aligned and all... I connect the guider camera and mount with phd2. All nice and easy, I run a calibration, then it starts to guide. All seems ok. Then I am starting to take pictures. The first seems OK, then the second have the star trails... I check phd2 and there is a message: the camera (ASI) did not take a picture for "xy" seconds so it is disconnected. Grrr.... I reconnect try to set up a longer period for "xy" in the settings as mentioned in the message. And all the same again and again. Whatever I add for connection timeout for the camera, it just reaches that and disconnect the camera. PHD + philips toucam has worked for me flowlessly. I changed to PHD2 because I gave myself a birthday present, the little ZWO camera. (and PHD did not recognize it) Do you have any idea what can be the problem? I will contact PHD2 help also, but maybe somebody had already the same problem and figured out how to overcome. I am almost sure I make some dumb mistake in the PHD2 software settings, however I tried to change only what was needed.
  2. Hi, I designed and printed an adaptor for getting my MC120MC and a Nikon DSLR Lens onto my mount. For all details see here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1650352 Cheers, Carsten PS: The attached image is done with the ASI120MC, a Vivitar Series 1 lens (@210mm), SharpCap Beta using the live stacking only
  3. Hi I have recently purchased a ZWO ASI120MC-S webcam from FLO. I wanted to try it the other night so I decided to get some test images for the moon. I was using Sharpcap for this. I manged to get the video and was using Autostakkert to stack it. On the final stacked image I can see that there are some strange vertical lines. I have attached a picture of that. There is also a zoomed in image of a region and I can see some small squares almost resembling the pixels on the sensor. Below are my capture settings as given by SharpCap. [ZWO ASI120MC-S] Debayer Preview=On Pan=0 Tilt=0 Output Format=AVI files (*.avi) Binning=1 Capture Area=1280x960 Colour Space=RAW8 Temperature=19.2 High Speed Mode=Off Overclock=0 Turbo USB=86(Auto) Flip=Both Frame Rate Limit=60 fps Gain=50(Auto) Exposure=0.001993 Timestamp Frames=Off White Bal (B)=95 White Bal (R)=52 Brightness=0 Auto Exp Max Gain=50 Auto Exp Max Exp M S=30000 Auto Exp Target Brightness=100 Mono Bin=Off Apply Flat=None Subtract Dark=None #Black Point Display Black Point=0 #MidTone Point Display MidTone Point=0.5 #White Point Display White Point=1 TimeStamp=2018-06-25T23:13:22.6772909Z SharpCapVersion=3.1.5214.0 For Autostakkert (v2.6.8 ) I was not doing anything fancy. Pressed analyze and then used 50% of the frames to stack. Used 200 as the AP size. Also, had the drizzle as 1.5x My camera was mounted to a skywatcher 200pds and HEQ5 mount. I am failing to understand what is going wrong here. Is the camera a problem or stacking is an issue ? Please let me know if there is any more information that you need. Thanks and Regards, Yogesh moon_25062018_1min_00_13_20_g4_ap35_Drizzle15.tif moon_25062018_1min_00_13_20_g4_ap35_Drizzle15_ZOOM.tif
  4. After a bit of advice on Barlows please. Thinking of getting one to replace the Skywatcher 2x I have which is "okay" but I wonder if I can get better? I have got a fairly decent image of Saturn and Jupiter with it, using an Xbox cam. Was lucky enough to receive an ASI120MM for Christmas (am over the moon) which I will be using for guiding with my ED80/ST80 but want to try a bit of planetary with it with my 200P (as I did the Xbox cam). Looking at 2nd hand barlows I wonder which one to get to assist at all with this set up. Lots of different ones out there. Any advice please for use with 200P? Thanks, Bob
  5. Have been enjoying having a go at Jupiter with my new asi 120 colour camera which seems ridiculously good for the money; this is with an old Vixen 4" and barlow. My problem is that when I get the raw image into wavelets I really have no idea how to proceed but saw a useful post about only using the top two sliders and this has really helped. Last night I also used an Omegon flip mirror for the first time. They do 2 versions and I can't recommend their cheaper version as there are no collimation screws and it was miles out.
