First Light with SW 150PDS

Recommended Posts

Scope arrived yesterday lunch, after unpacking and checking I decided to check the collimation. Miles out so I did a complete recollimation using a Barlowed Laser and set up the NEQ6 for a star test if the weather cleared! 

It cleared at 9pm and a quick star test proved the collimation was good! I observed a few early targets but wanted to try the DSLR out.

It focused straight away with a new Bahtinov mask, I aim to get a Baader Mk3 CC soon but hardly any Coma shows on the 2 images I took.

Both NEQ6 SW 150PDS Canon 1000dm APT and PHS 1.2



Very pleased with the results as these are only 10 x 180 s dithered so no Darks, Flats etc.

I might add the SW WiFi refused to work half way through so back to the handset!

Comments welcome
