Selling my full narrowband set up for multiple reasons: I could do with the money and mono just isn't really doing it for me.
Altair Astro 183m Tec
Baader Narrowband filters (Ha, OIII, SII and Clear)
ZWO Electronic Mini Filter Wheel
All associated cables/plugs
T2 extensions to reach 55mm back focus for use with reducers
Boxes and cases
There is a scratch on the T2-T2 adaptor for the filter wheel and a couple of the labels on the filter boxes have been torn. But otherwise the important parts work perfectly well.
Collection or postage via DPD.
Buyer to pay postage and PayPal fees.
No offers currently accepted, and I would rather not split
THIS ITEM HAS NOW BEEN SOLD.
This listing is for my personal camera (Kayron from Light Vortex Astronomy). It is a QSI 660wsg-8 monochrome CCD camera with the onboard 8-position filter wheel and Off-Axis Guider (OAG).
The camera has been extremely well kept and cared for. I am supplying them in the original QSI pelican case, alongside the power adapter (with EU and UK plugs), a new USB cable, the QSI Allen wrench set, the 2" adapter for the camera and the guiding cable. The camera's condition is as-new.
The QSI 660wsg-8 requires a single USB connection to control both imaging and the filter wheel. It also cools to -45°C below ambient temperature. The CCD sensor is Sony's ICX694, which is extremely low noise requiring no darks whatsoever and having peak Quantum Efficiency of 77%. The readout noise is also extremely low at only 3.97e as per my own measurement. Its full well capacity is of 17,719e, also as per my own measurement. For more information, please see QSI's website:
Please note that this camera currently retails at just over £3,700 from UK suppliers, €4,400 from European suppliers or $4,200 from US suppliers. Payment is preferred via bank transfer but PayPal is OK with an extra 2.9% to cover PayPal fees. I'll cover postage to you via tracked Courier.
I welcome any questions you may have regarding this listing. Thank you for looking.
Hello everyone !
I was looking for solutions to put a filter wheel with my current equipment and I am a bit confused.
I have a Nikon D3300 Astrodon Inside, a Astro Essentials T Ring for Nikon DSLR, the Skywatcher Evostar 72ED and the OVL Field Flattener (from the website First Light Optics).
Do you know if I could focus correctly with this 1,25" filter wheel https://www.firstlightoptics.com/zwo-accessories/zwo-5-position-1-25inch-manual-filter-wheel.html placed between the scope (Evostar 72ED) and the OVL field flattener (like he does) ? I asked the customer service and they said that I need these adaptors (below), but they are not sure if I can do the focus or not. Does somebody know ?
“This to get the wheel to a male T thread on the flattener side https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/baader-t2-t2-inverter-ring.html then this to get the M48 thread needed to connect the flattener https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/flo-m48-to-t2-adapter.html
The flattener should separate into two parts if you need the shorten it ( the nosepiece will screw off)
On the telescope side of the wheel fit a 2" nose piece to the wheel https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/flo-2-inch-t-mount-camera-adapter.html“
So I made some sketch to better understand what it is about.
Since a few days, I'm the proud owner of the asi1600 Pro.
Performed some first tests, see: https://youtu.be/hHJBbpNoi2I
I used SGP Pro to test cooling and dark frames (2m and 5m) on unity gain settings.
Is it ok to use unity gain (139) setting or should I use high dynamic range?
Also, this is my first mono. Do I need to take flats/bias frames for each filter separately?
And how could I stack either broadband or narrowband images? I'm used to deep sky stacker.
