My new to me UA MacroStar Deluxe mount. Sitting atop a surveyors tripod I got from work. This mount is pretty sweet!

My new AP900 all loaded up for imaging: Takahashi FSQ-106ED, Stellarvue F60 guidescope, SBIG ST-8300M. As expected, the skies will be cloudy for the next two weeks.

Only two weeks for such nice setup?

Well, that's how far out the weather forecast goes. Who knows what lies beyond.

Beautiful setup! Yep, clouds and rain just in time for Messier Marathon season. :-( Still, its hard to gripe about rain in Texas right now....but I'm close!

This makes loads of sense, and what a difference! How is it that you're able to carry out such precise measurements? Were there sensors applied to the setup that tracked its movements, and, how would you make the corrections to its tracking a permanent solution so that it always performs that well.

Clear skies,

No doubt...I usually don't like rain, but I'm making an exception right now.

This is my new Canadian Telescope HD Duo T Mount, with my TV85 & M500 mounted on it. I placed the mount on top of my Porta Mount II plate. There is a gap between the mount and plate, but it is still solid. I have not had a chance to try it out. I cannot wait!

Here's my new to me Tak EM-200 controlled using a SkyWire and an iPhone/iPad with SkySafari ready for a first shot. I'm using an ES127 APO with a D700.

Clear sky.

Cgem dx [Re: cyberben]
      #5185350 - 04/22/12 08:04 PM

Decided to give a cgem dx a try. No disappointments so far. Carries a televue np101is and a 6" achromatic for now.

As you can see in the background it's still to cold to open the pool.
