Cool set-up Moromete.

How well does the SX work in the SCT? Have you tried it?

I tried LodestarC with C11 at F2.6 and it's wonderful but I need another guide cam this way.

In fact I find LodestarC resolution sufficient for DSO photography.

Using yor LodestarC and C11 @ F2.6 yields an image scale of 2.45 arcsec/pixel. For average seeing under the Jetstream that resolution is sufficient for DSO's.

this is my new video setup. had the old patio blocks removed and replaced it with a concrete slab ( very nice and a lot smoother to roll around on. the wooden table I made didn't work out too well so I purchased a tool cart from sears that works a out better. real happy with this. now, if I can just get my camera I ordered from astro-video systems I can rock and roll. donnie
