Quote:Here's 2nd contact with the Tak 76, taken from a video sequence that started just after first contact. I had the Tak stopped down with the filter over the opening in the lens cap for this. Later, I took that off and made a full-aperture filter.

Quote:Stephen:These are awesome scopes, huh!?I took some full aperture video just before the sunset sequence above, where I caught a number of planes and a couple clouds go across the sun's disk during the transit. Here's the first plane, with a thin cloud for a bonus:

Quote:Quote:Here is a picture of my setup for the transit.Stephen Stephen:Been meaning to ask you about your 2" eyepiece adapter. Is it a Tak accessory? If not, who makes it and where can *I* get one? Also, do you just have the OTA, or did yours come with the P2 mount? I'd like to add a drive to mine, but I'm not sure what's available. A motorized Dec slow motion would be nice as well, but I won't modify the mount to add it. -Tim.
