Just would like a few pointers and helpful tips on my setup.
Bought a second hand NEQ 6 Pro mount, with a Sky watcher ED100, Startravel 80T guide scope. Got a canon 450D with ir cut astromod and a 600D with everything in front of CCD removed.
i also got a Sky Watcher Synguider Autoguider (II i think) here is my first question.
I was planning using PHD2 for guiding. and i have seen guides using phd to align too. so had a plan to go that route... if not someone reccomends otherwise
Wife thinks i've spent enough on this already, so i might want a pointer for a OK guide cam that works with PHD2.
( I don't want the best/most expensive- never going to win that battle just want something with walue for money that works.)
Can even use a diy webcam for starters. (got a 3d printer so can print needed parts)
The ED100 was delivered with the flattener/reducer. this has 48mm threads if i remember correctly.
Ive got ta Cosmos 90GT and the rear peace of the focuser has 48mm to 42mm so i can attach my canon cameras to the ED100 flattener wtith this piece.
(guess someone knows if this is a bad idea using a extra piece of tube (more distance) and a smaller "hole" for light to pass through? (picture of the piece in mind on the GT90 and on the reducer.)
Thats the only way i can connect my camera to the ED100 as of now.. ( iknow i need a 48mm T adapter for canon)
I also would like pointers to what budget filter to get? I've got no filters as of now and living in bortle class 5 skies.
