Hello and thanks for the add.
I have recently acquired a TAK FC100DL (from the first production run, with the black focuser) that I have so far used only for visual with an occasional attempt at Lunar photography with a DSLR (canon 6D). The views are superb and I’ve been toying with the idea of trying it Out on deep sky objects (with the DSLR) by adding a focal reducer. However from what I can establish, the matched focal reducer for this scope is the TAK FC-35 which Carries a pretty hefty price tag.
Has anyone tried this combination? Or able to offer advice on wether its worth the expense.
I went to my family house in the countryside and was able to take some pictures during xmas eve.
Total exposure: 6h
H_Alpha: ~3h (730x15s) --> R, G
Oxigen III: ~3h (710x15s) --> B, G
I didn't have a view on Polaris and could not spend too much time drift aligning (it was xmas eve after all :D) hence the short exposures. Moreover I dont have the proper connection rings to put my flattener on my mono camera so all stars off center are a mess :_(.
Hi, I am seeking some information and am hoping someone here can help as I am unable to locate the info on the internet.
I have a Lunt LS50-THa fitted with the Starlight dual speed feathertouch focuser and want to know the thread size and type of the 3 set screws that is used to hold the focuser and adapter together and allow it to rotate. I haven't lost any of them yet but am looking to replace them with something that can allow me to tighten and loosen them with fingers alone (it will also allow me to keep spares and track of those little things).
