  7. At 3600mm FL, I'm not suprised they wouldn't fit in the same FOV!
  8. First chance I have had to try out my new Sky max 150 in anger tonight. Coupled it up to the ZWO 120 MC and a 2X Barlow. To say I am impressed with its performance is an understatement. Could not quite get both targets into a single FOV so this is a combination of two individual images combined into a single image. Both single images are a 2500 frame SER captured in Fire Capture. Top 90 % stacked in Registax. Final image compiled in PS 6. Click on the image to get to full res.

    Have a look at the Baader ones or Astronomics if you have a few more pennies to spend.

    Good evening, all

    Most of my early binocular use was afloat, and I could never hold a pair of 10x50s still enough to be useful. I found a monopod an effective and portable support. There is a useful online newsletter for binocular astronomy which you can subscribe to.

    The best set are Astrodon true colour filters. A full set of 1.25 L R G B are surprisingly good value for the money. They are par focal so no need to refocus for each filter.

    Good evening, all

    Only 2 weeks?! πŸ˜†

    Good evening, all

    Nice one Chris, all you need now is some clear skies, usually the purchasing of any new astro equipment comes along with a good 2 weeks of crappy weather πŸŒ§οΈπŸŒ§οΈπŸ™‚

    Good evening, all

    Thanks for all the advice, much appreciated everybody. Once lockdown is over I am definitely up for the meets. Wymeswold really isn't far from me at all so that sounds ideal; looking forward to it. So I took the plunge today and bought myself some 10x50's....seems like a good starting point based on advice and some online reading....would definitely be worth comparing them as you guys have said with some alternative specs when we get the opportunity. At least I wild be able to show up mildly equipped! Chris

    The bigger targets are on there way especially the Constellation of Cygnus !! We are all waiting for that I think!! πŸ™‚

    I like that Mark. It's like peering through a window of a spaceship, all you see is stars and then suddenly you pass something different out there πŸ‘

    M57 lost in the stars, may need some bigger targets. Canon 5D II @ 500 mm.

    So the mak has been cleaned and thoughts turn to acquiring RGB filters so what is a good manufacturer for rgb filters? , hopefully in July birthday pending I would like to acquire a ZWO EFW , so that should set me up for planetary capture with the qhy 290mono which should give blistering FPS I have high expectations and hopefully the mono will give better colours via rgb than my usual Osc .

    I did Phil and I sweared I would never use one again πŸ˜„ But the warm room might tempt me again, we will see.

    And what a usable frame! Excellent. Did you hand track this Chris, or use tracking software?
