Hi there

As I wrote in another thread about the Mallincam, you guys made me spend to much for my Christmas gift. My wife i not happy :bawling:

After over 20 days tracking my gift from town to town and airport to airport, my MallinCam arrived. And gues what, very bad weather for at least the next 7 days.

Anyway, I took a pictore of the package. The small 80mm. Scopos is not intended for use with the camera. The main scope will be my 10" F/6.3 Newton.

If you have tracking for that 80mm scope, you may like the wide FOV on some of the larger, bright objects.

Thanks all

It's not an advertisement; I just use some very large astrophoto posters when I take photos of gear. I just like great pictures.

Greg, I have tracking (GEM Mount) so I will give it a try with the 80mm.

The monitor is a car GPS unit with composite input. I plan to use it because it way to big for the car. It not a quality monitor by far.

I promise I’ll post some pictures when everything is up and running.

I ANYONE CAN CHANGE THE WEATHER, PLEASE DO!
