Here's The big man from a couple of nights ago, I'm desperate ti get a bit more info out of it but I've started with AS2 and it's pretty good software.

Would love to have a go with a 4x or 5x Powermate but could do with some motor driven focusing.

Thanks for looking, other stuff is on my flickr site.

Hi, it's just the 200p and it's probably one of the better planetary images i've tank with that scope. I was using a Revelation 2.5 barlow which isn't the greatest but not bad, I managed to stack about 1600-1900 frames per RGB channel but I think that using Autostakert @ it the key. A great bit of software for aligning, I then adjust the wavelets in Registax and follow this link for Photoshop finishing.

Hope that this is of some help

Great image!! What camera did you use??

Hi Thanks, using the ASI120mm with manual RGB filter wheel, it's proving to be a great little camera.

Hi, I thought I'd try a revision of this image so i've added another Red layer for luminosity and I think it"s brought out a touch more detail.
I thought I'd order an Astronomik IR pass filter to see how that works.
Left is the original and Right is Revision.
Thanks

      I tested the tracer polymer battery over a six hour period and although the red light on the HEQ5 flashed most of the time, and more rapidly as time went on, the mount moved so that the time on setting circles changed by six hours, suggesting the mount will track OK.  (the test was carried out during the day).  I did not try to get the telescope to point in a different direction using the handset.
      1) Should I be bothered by the flashing lights on the HEQ5 mount?
      2) Is tracer misleading people by saying their batteries are 12 volts?  (they say that their discharge curves are flat)
      I found that the battery's voltage falls.  Below is from the Tracer datasheet.
      ---------------------------------------------------------- 
      Built-in Fuel Gauge - 5 colour LED fuel gauge mounted externally to show charge level. LED Status:
      3 green & 2 red: Battery fully charged 11.7V
      2 green & 2 red: Over 50% capacity 11.4V
      1 green & 2 red: Over 20% capacity 11.1V
      2 red: Less than 20% capacity 10.7V 1 red:
      Less than 10% capacity 10.3V No lights: Battery empty 8.25V 
      ----------------------------------------------------
      Thanks

      Sooo...I'm getting quote frustrated here. This spring I tested my HEQ5 with guiding. The synscan controller was connected to the computer trough the USB plug on the hand controller. This worked like a charm in my living room. On the new controllers you dont need the rs cable. But when I tried the whole thing with guide cameara for some live shooting, it just did not work. I get something wrong with the com port in decice manager, driver not working. I have tried 3 different drivers. The whole thing responded, connected and was guiding when i did a dummy test before the summer. So setup is pc-synscan via usb for pulse guiding. Can it be a problem with windows 10? What t h.... just happened? Where can I find a driver that works? And believe me it worked 5 months ago, argh. Thanks for any respons and support
