Sorry its the old driver issue (I think)
Im running win 10 and have a QHY 5 II M
ASCOM 4 driver
Camera shows up in Device Manager as:
Astroimaging - QHY5II
Start Sharp Cap and it finds: QHY 5 II M and connects - however if i start to capture there is just a dark screen (given it day time and the camera has plenty of light I would have expected basically a white screen)
Start QGVideo and it just says No Camera Detected
Im sure it is a driver issues but I find the info online overwhelming as there is so much
Pointers really appreciated
Celestron C9.25 OTA with ADM Losmandy dovetail
Everything in very good optical and mechanical condition
Cosmetically, there are the usual few small scratches on the paintwork, but no significant damage.
ADM Losmandy dovetail was £84 new 18 months ago
Reason for sale is recent upgrade of OTA.
Collection from Worcester, or Kelling Heath or SGL star parties, or could possibly meet halfway.
***Updated with individual prices***
I purchased this early this year but just haven't been using it. A combination of other stuff going on and just generally bad timing on the 3 good nights we have had this year means I have not been able to get into using it in the way I had hoped. And I don't see it getting any better, so seems sensible to move it one to someone who can use it more effectively while I concentrate on broadband imaging with my ED80.
So, I have the XLT Fastar Compatible OTA on a Vixen dovetail with the 6x30 finder, 1.25" visual back and 25mm EP.
I also got a Skywatcher SCT focuser to help with mirror flop for imaging.
Also Bahtinov Mask
And homemade Sun Filter and Dew/Light shield that i can throw in if anyone wants them.
OTA is in perfect condition with the usual expected scratches on the dovetail, but otherwise in great condition. It is a fantastic scope giving great views, I am just not going to be able to use it much.
£875 for the OTA
£75 for the Focuser
£15 Bahtinov Mask
£950 for the lot or make me an offer!
Collection for OTA preferred as this is a bulky, fragile item and couriers generally will not insure such glass going through the post. I am not keen on posting, but could consider it if buyer is willing to organise themselves and take responsibility for it. I think I still have the boxes it came in. Focuser and Mask can obviously be posted.
Bank transfer, paypal accepted.
I'm in Gloucester.
Does anyone know what the strange diffraction spikes are in this image? I know the star Alnitak is pretty bright but wasn't expecting this.
I've never seen this happen before. Is it an SCT thing, or a MY SCT thing?
I've seen straight diffraction spikes, but never curved.
Is there anything I can do to stop this? Could it be a collimation issue? I did check before I started imaging, but thought everything looked ok.
My scope is a Celestron C9.25 XLT, and I'm using a f/6.3 corrector/reducer with modded Canon EOS 600D.
Thanks in advance
