Should I sell my tele vue NP-101 and buy a genesis (as I mostly do narrow band imaging) ?

Recommended Posts

Hi clever people (and fellow geeks),

I live in London and I mostly do narrowband imaging from my roof. I have a 2005 tele vue NP-101. Its  an F5.4  super apo. Its a great scope and it cost (with a few other bits) around £1800. 

Question: Would I be wise to sell it and instead buy a tele vue genesis? The Genesis isn't a super apo but I'm thinking that doesn't really matter for narrowband imaging and at f5 it is a bit faster which will help. As it is a petzval design I'm assuming it will have a nice flat field. I can get one for around £600... and I could use the money I've saved to buy pixinsight and other bits of astro kit.

      I use the TV Panoramic mount with my Genesis. Bought both together & they are excellent grab & go. 
      So as my Skytee 2 is too heavy for tucking under an arm & I like scope in or on top mounts, I am considering a fork mount for my fracs, of which the 120 Equinox is bulkiest and heaviest. 
      The only maker I can find for fork mounts for scopes (others for binoculars) is Tele Vue, & their Gibraltar 5. They seem to come with a star finder gadget which may be good being for TV. 
      So does anyone here use a TV Gibraltar for any size of scope, & can advise on its pros & cons including the star finder?

      Hi,

      What can you do during a rainy and boring day?

      Yes, write something about about old project ideas that newer have been realized.

      For many years I have been wondering how to construct a beam splitter system to make more efficient use of exposure time when doing color or narrow band imaging.

      I have today written down my ideas here:
      http://astrofriend.eu/astronomy/projects/project-high-efficiency-narrow-band-imaging/project-high-efficiency-narrow-band-imaging.html

      There are a lot of interesting links there too to read.

      I moved to the Nagler T4 range for more viewing comfort and this lovely eyepiece needs to find a new home. 
      This is a LNIB eyepiece that saw limited focuser action 3 times as it was purchased and received on the 16th of September this year. 
      Comes with original box, wrapping, sticker and caps. Any minor dust will be blown off with a manual blower prior to shipping. No scratches, no dings no falls, no nothing. 
      Price includes PayPal fee and shipping with insurance and tracking. 
      Thanks for looking! 
      Clear skies, 
      Nicos
