The pain of the cold was very much worth it the other night. Lots of fun viewing and imaging Uranus and Mars, and viewing the Eskimo neb, m42, and a ton of clusters.

Doesn't appear to show a picture in your post?

Was there one?

I've been doing my first imaging with a Star Adventurer - I'll be interested to see and hear how it went for you - please share a link to whatever part of the forum you post your results to - if you do 🙂

Wow, some proper serious set ups here 😳 but here is my little offering, its my 8" LX90 which has since been superseded

by a 10" LX90 but due to the very few nights of clear skies lately I haven’t had time to update a pic of this set up but as I am

in the midst of building a bespoke EQ wedge I will update my pic once up and running.

Clear skies all. 👍

Hi David,

If u mean picture of the set up, its up there. ( please do Scroll up, 6 pictures from yours)

The blueness of that sky makes me remember of KALAHARI desert stinging cold nights. 

I can see the outlines of two fracs ( 60 or 71 mm) on Your SA.  SA does a good job with widefield optics. its a nice grab and go set up.

I scrolled up and saw your pictures - weird thing is I'm pretty sure I saw them earlier LOL! Don't know what I was talking about when I said I couldn't see them 😞 Sorry 🙂

Those pictures you posted are stunning - I'd love to see skies like that.

One frac is the Altair 60EDF for imaging and the other is a Altair 50mm guide scope 🙂 

I've had a lot of fun over the past week with the SA - some struggles tonight (posted elsewhere here) with a dew shield but it made me laugh 🙂

Those pictures you posted are stunning - I'd love to see skies like that. Dark site hunting is a side effect of night sky addiction. 😜 Im glad u like them.

One frac is the Altair 60EDF for imaging and the other is a Altair 50mm guide scope 🙂 R u using a DSLR or CCD cam ?  Use a Reducer/Flattner with Altair 60EDF.

I've had a lot of fun over the past week with the SA - some struggles tonight (posted elsewhere here) with a dew shield but it made me laugh 🙂. Struggles , Cable USB horror, Mosquito  Draculas pretty much a never ending story  of this hobby.  Some say in Pain begins the Pleasure😫cheers Rush
