Explore Scientific 210 and some other new gear

Recommended Posts

with the sale of my SW200 and Heq5 mount sorted out (going to a friend)
I upgraded it for the Explore Scientific 210 Newt and the ES Coma corrector to match and a dew heater (for the winter)
also has a cooling fan fitted to keep the primary cool
bought privately from a member of SGL for  a very good price and even got some clear skies tonight (not a lot) with enough gaps to get the camera on and
get a few images and I'm well impressed with it

next move is to mount my ED80 piggyback for solar and even as a guide scope (overkill) and general second scope
so looks like my small SW80 will be redundant

spent a few hours setting up and balancing the rig
mounted the ED 80 as a guide scope / secondary imaging / solar scope
had to add the extender to the ES to get prime focus and the wedge to the ED for the same reason
used a pylon 2 miles a way to align the scopes and orientate the camera's

now all I need is clear skies
