Following a filter size upgrade I have an Astronomik LRGB set of filters, 1 1/4 inch. Probably around 12 years old. Kept in a filterwheel when in use but they have also been stored for a couple of years in their original box when I acquired some Baader ones to match my Baader narrowband filters. No scratches or coating issues. I have tried to show this in the images attached.
Looking for £80 posted given their age.
Hello everyone, I've got a question.
I want to upgrade the visual back on the Mak 127. The standard back on the Mak is not pleasant to work with as seen in the image. I need to get rid of this plastic thing. I purchased a mak to sct adapter when I bought the scope, I never got around to doing anything until now as I've just acquired a Baader 2.25x barlow as shown in the image.
Now, I've had a go of attaching the the Baader Barlow into the original plastic thing on the mak, it works .... but I'm not happy with the connection being made with the two locking screws, as there is still movement when the barlow, t-ring and Canon DSLR are all in the train.
I've been having a look on FLO for some work around, does anyone have some input as to whether this will work.
Mak to sct adapter-> Baader 2 inch to 1.25 reducer adapter->Baader 2.25x barlow + T ring & DSLR
Any input or a better way of securing everything is greatly appreciated!😊
Another option I've come across is this , Baader ClickLock 2"-1.25" Adapter and Baader T2 Extension Tube to bring it to 40mm when attached to the mak to sct adapter. Anyone have any experience with this?
I joined the forum to learn more about risks and success of filter removal for UV and IR photography.
Back in 2011, one of the group's members, was trying to do just that:
Unfortunately Stephen hasn't been active in the group since 2014, but the filter removal appears to have gone well (at least the S3 wasn't killed in the process).
I have the same exact camera and I'm looking forward to try the same exact procedure. Does anyone has any tips on how to do this successfully/safely?
Hi guys, its me kronos, and i am about to purchase a new a new filter for my 5” and 8” scopes. I cant decide wether to buy a UHC or an oiii filter.
my budget it 70euros max
And i have settled between the uhc explore scientific
or the oiii explore scientific.
i am open to other suggestions in this price range
i am keen to observing more deep sky objects with better detail
Whichever filter i wont buy now, i will buy a better one in the future(for example if i dont buy the uhc , i will buy an astronomic uhc in the future)
So far i have loved the views of m42 (i have observed many more objects)and now thats its fading into the suns glare, i m starting to find more and more objects.Hoping to observe the veil and the lagoon nebula as long as some planetaries and definetly globulars(which i ve heard that they dont take filters(am i correct?). I ve heard that the oiii enhances contrast and dims the object, but is the dimming worth the additional contrast from the uhc?
i havent yet observed my first planetary , but i am planning to soon.I m really excited to see one!
I will make another thread similar to this then,asking questions that may arise and reach a conclusion.
I wrote this thread to ask about your preferences with filters(oiii or uhc) and for advice on what i should buy according to the objects i want to view)
thanks, any advice will be useful.
Both little used, 'as new' condition, selling due to change of camera.
Price incl. shipment: Ha: £99; CLS: £49
