No updates as yet. You would not believe how bad the weather here has been for the past 9 months. It seems we had a 6-month+ monsoon season that has now transformed into cyclone season with fortnightly cyclones. I think I can count the number of fully clear nights I've had this year on one hand .... maybe even one finger :-) Seriously. I'm getting a few hours of imaging in cloudy skies, sometimes once a week, but there have been a few occasions this year where there was continuous cloud cover for more than a month.
"First DSO" for the FRA400 will be the Cygnus loop as it fits perfectly into the FOV of the ASI6200. I have 26 hours of data and I thought I was finished, but when I checked my S2 subs I discovered four hours of data corrupted by clouds, so I'm trying to replace those now. Another cyclone is due to arrive in a couple of days so it looks like yet another week of cloudy weather though.
Were you able to fix the tilt issues?
No, I don't have a tilt adapter at the moment, so my images will be "worts and all". I did have an M48 tilt adapter ordered at TS but I've had absolutely no end of trouble with them lately so I've had to cancel the order.
Considering to get one for 6200 , if not to pair with 2600mc
I'm fairly confident that, with a tilter in-line, I can correct most, if not all, of the tilt that is visible in my images above, and that is when using the full frame 6200, so if you're imaging without the reducer the 6200 is a viable option. I haven't used the reducer yet, but when I do there will be no room for a tilt adapter between the reducer and camera due to the limited back focus of 55mm, so any tilt in there (like camera sensor tilt) will be uncorrectable. Furthermore, the reducer fits up into the focuser, so it is probably not possible to place a tilter between the reducer and scope without some type of special adapter. Therefore (and I may be wrong) I doubt it will be possible to remove tilt when using the ZWO 6200+ large EFW + M68 OAG + reducer. If that is the case the only solution I can think of would be to move to a guide scope and fit a tilter in place of the OAG.
