I'm interested. Aren't ST80s good for autoguiding? I've recently got myself a QHY5 camera which I was going to use with my SW's finderscope. Would the ST80 be better? At least it would fee up my finderscope! I have a SW 200P on an HEQ5 mount. Would the mount be strong enough to take ST80, DSLR, QHY5 etc?

I've been using mine for autoguiding in exactly the same setup as you describe for the past year and I've been more than happy with it.

I'm only selling it after SGL as I'm going down the OAG route :D

Damn, wish I was going to SGL7 - I've been looking out for an ST80... but alas it seems that even if I was going I'd be second in the queue :D

Probably getting near to the mouts limits there Alex but it should be fine. As Kheldar says he's been running the same config for a while and I've run the same on my HEQ5 without incident.

Clamp it all together and you'll be up and autoguiding in no time at all.

My CG5-GT mount is no longer for sale, it is going to a new home this Saturday. The EQ3 is sold subject to the buyer turning up at SGL7 :D

I can now fit my EQ6 Syntrek mount in the car for SGL7 .... result :)

Are you going to get fed up with this EQ6 and sell it after the starparty like you did last year? :D

Nope, this one is a keeper, assuming it works when I finally unpack it lol. I've gone full circle once I won't be doing it twice.

I think :D:)

I'm sure I can find some stuff.

I have

An Orion x-y guide mount for moving a camera in the focal plane

An ED80 I'm not using and might consider parting with, its missing the rubbers off the focuser wheel

A SC-880 webcam I'm not using

a 9x30 b&w finder

I'm sure there are other things I can bring.

Anyone interested ?

Mike

I'd actually quite like to see this in action, so it would be good if you demonstrate the belt drive working ;)
