Lovely image, just a couple of questions?

How are you getting on with the Moravian G1 Guide Camera, is it as good as the Lodestar X2?

Is that a commercial database you have for storing your CCD Acquisitions, if so where can it be obtained?

I've created one in access as I coudln't find a commercial one, so your table looks quite good?

Many Thanks.

Hi John,

Thank you for your comment.

I don't know the Lodestar but the Moravian G1-301 is excellent no problem ?

About my Data Table, no i created it under MS Word on my own computer for all my images. It is not a commercial database. ?

Thanks for the reply, I have the new G2-8300 MkII with their EFW-2S-7 and their new OAG, but it didn't work properly with the Lodestar X2, so was interested as to it's stability and guide properties.

Thank you Steve for your comment. I worked very hard on this setup. The native TeleVue focuser was not steady for the big weight of the new imaging train (4.5Kg).

The new focuser mounting is solid as a rock now.

John, i use the SkyMeca SkyTrack 3" OAG. About the CCD camera for guiding, i prefered to stay with Moravian equipement for a compatibility with their Ethernet Standard Box.

It's a beautiful image, but I am going to make one suggestion from a security perspective.

By providing your location down to the nearest arc second you are effectively telling everyone where the equipment is.  You can put the coordinates into google maps and refine the observing location to within a few properties because arcsecs is a really refined pointing reference.  Combine that with the photo of the equipment and you can pretty much know this to a specific property.  I would always recommend only providing information to the nearest arcmin (even that can be quite refined).

Thanks Florent, that really is a lovely OAG, and looks superbly made, I had to stop using my Moravian OAG because of its compatibility and I went back to using my Celestron OAG which is large and bulky but very solid, but the SkyMeca SkyTrack 3" OAG looks very good, does it come with various adapters for connectivity?

Thank you for your reply. I modified my Data Table ?

SkyMeca is a small french company. Didier Chaplain has created and made this OAG. He makes all various  & customs adapters for your own material : telescopes, CCD cameras.......etc. SkyMeca is the main Moravian dealer in France. My SkyMeca 3" OAG is a SLIM version especially created to me to use my imaging train on my TeleVue but also for my ASA 12" Newtonian reflector to work with its small backfocus.

Cheers Florent, I am going to have to have a look more into that as I really like it.

I had a look on your web site, some really lovely images, cool!

Florent, 

 

Great image! I really like the rework on the imaging train of the TeleVue, looks rock solid. I used the np101is some years ago and it is optically superb. 

Regards 

Pieter

Thank you Pieter.

Oh yes, the new imaging train is solid as a rock to support the big G4-16000 and the FLI ATLAS focuser. The TeleVue NP101is works perfectly now. ?

      It was a tough decision to let this go, but I hope it will find a good home and get used as it should.
      There are many threads on SGL containing the observations I had with this telescope. Here is a collection of my reports with this telescope: astrojournal_by_date.pdf  
      1. TeleVue-60 f6 with short Vixen dovetail, the TV60 soft case, original bag, TeleVue hat, and booklet signed by Al Nagler. Asking for £600.
      2. Manfrotto 190 aluminium tripod, TS AZT6-GR mount head with TSPKM dovetail clamp. Asking for £190. This is sold as a package.
      Payment via bank account transfer, PayPal (as friends or buyer pays the fees), or in person. Collection in person is preferred, but I can dispatch the items using parcelforce at buyer's risk. Shipping costs will be arranged.

      These are my last images of 2019 taken with my ED72 and 183mm pro to be replaced by a 533pro
      These targets are not easy due to location trees etc except M1 , there was a bright moon as well so are all lucky shots
      but at last i have taken them warts and all . My guiding was all off as well
      Anyway a merry Christmas to you all and a Happy new year

      My first image of M76 A bit rushed as clear nights are a rarity now
      30x120s Bin 2 Luminance ,SW 102 , ZWO 183MM Pro , OVL field flattener ,guided , processed in Gimp
      Took some Ha as well but poor results for some reason
      Seems an Oiii filter may have brought out some more detail
       
      i know its not great but just chuffed to have imaged it
