Quote:Looking forward to seeing you on NSN. I have never seen anyone broadcasting with a Lodestar -- so I am particularly curious to see how it will look.Al
Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes living with misery a lot easier!
Quote:Dwight indicated what's required.You can't broadcast on NSN with the camera and it's software on it's own. You need something to capture the image

The only issue I see is that if Curtis uses his AT8IN scope at a nice fast f2 the image scale is going to be way too small for a lot of the common objects. You can get by with f2 Bob because you are using a C14 at native f10 which is a good long focal length to work with by reducing it faster and keeping the image scale still good for most objects. Just though Curtis should know this.
Quote:Edit: And that brings up another thought. Do you guys that are on the broadcast site a lot know of anyone that uses something like one of Astro Physics' older 6" f12 refractors? That might make for an interesting combination. Yea, you'd need a fairly stout mount, but it would be a pretty neat setup! David
