Nice, what happened to your camera Charl? Or is that a sore subject.

thanks David, i dropped just before Christmas and as i went to pick it up i stood on it and broke the bit where the usb connects so had a go at soldering it back to the PBC and i think ive heated something too much as it will only give me 800x800 and cuts out mid vid so only short vids, i have a QHY 5-11 somewhere in the loft but am having trouble finding it. charl.

i brought about 3 years ago for a guide cam, think i used it once on some moon close ups, i think it works with firecapture but if not it will work with sharpcap just need to download the latest drivers.

Great shots Charl. I’m getting detail not far off that when the seeing steadies in the PST mod. Lovely!

thanks Steve, yes hopefully untill ive save up enough to get something better mate, the res is higher on the QHY than the asi120 so might be a mosaic on the cards 😀. clear skys. charl.

I used a QHY5-II mono for imaging before I got the ZWO. Should do a fine job for you Charl, although your frame rates might be a bit disappointing, max 30fpd @ full res if I remember correct. Still have mine tucked away in a cupboard just in case.
