The LED screen on my vintage (1993) Celestron NexStar 8 is no longer legible. Thus, I am looking for a replacement controller OR a compatible mount and controller. No NexStar+ controller will work with my old mount and I'm too new to this to know if a newer mount would be compatible with my old 8" OTA.
I wonder how can I mount the ZWO ASI 60mm Guidescope on the Evostar 72ED (elsewhere than the Vixen Style Finderscope Shoe, because the guidescope seems to be a bit too heavy).
Do I need a Vixen Bar of a specific length ? Or another type of adaptor ?
Is someone using another solution ?
Can't make my mind up on whether or not to buy a newt for ZWO imaging.
The Skywatcher pds range seem to be modified slightly for prime focus imaging (is this just a DSLR photography thing?) Every imager I have ever met seems to use the smaller newts like the 130 or 150 pds... Someone said that there's less possibility of the tube being bothered by the wind for one reason?
I realise that aperture is king when visual observing (yes I also realise that quality is as important) not so sure on imaging?
I found a reasonably priced used 130p but doesn't have dual focuser which I am used to on my scopes, so I'm tempted to just go for it... However as once having access to a 200p I used to love using that scope for visual...
Not sure and I am procrastinating over this one so much I think I'm going to need therapy!!! I have resorted to trying a poll for the first time ? Not sure how that works either, but every day is a school day folks!
P.S I am reading every photon counts but it's taking some time
