M45 using the new Vixen Polarie travel mount

Recommended Posts

Hi Keith

There is a hole through the side for doing a rough polar alignment-just sight through and get Polaris in the middle of the hole, or you can use the optional beautifully crafted polarscope to get a much more excat alignment-this is what I did in this case.:D

Hi Madjohn,

We spoke at astrofest today, it was nice to meet you.

I am very interested in getting the same setup you have with the ed45 but with my Sony Alpha (I realise its possibly not the best camera for the job, but its what I have), or with a relatively cheap (do such things exist) ccd.

Could you list out the parts needed with the ed45 and your cannon (helical focuser, adaptor, focal reducer?).

Do you, or any one else, have a recommendation for a ccd to use instead of a dslr. £250 cap (or am I being too hopeful)?
