ASI air pro / Celestron 6SE

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, just got myself an ASI air pro and waiting on my ASI 290MC camera getting delivered from FLO. 

Cant wait to get started with them but while I wait for the camera I'm looking for inspiration on how best to mount the Air pro to my telescope, a Celestron Nexstar 6SE

Anybody here use a similar set up that could give me some pointers, and maybe a couple of pictures to help out?

Also, any general pointers on using this set up appreciated. I really want to get some nice images of Jupiter and Saturn so hopefully this should be capable of that

Thanks in advance

Will it fit instead of the finder?  Don't have the same scope as you but I don't use my finder when using the asiair Pro (you really don't need it).  If you do want to keep the finder on the scope double brackets are available.  Have fun with your Asiair Pro. It makes life so much simpler.

Late to the party but in line with SmokeyJoe above, the finder is pretty much not needed if you go through EQMOD rather than the alignment process on the mount.
