  Hi, I have an 11" Edge HD and live in the SF Bay Area.

 

I use mine to do planetary AP.
The scope was bought ~4yrs ago and I did some sessions in the 1st season, then had to move to a terrible location, started a new job, and lost all time.

I moved back to my good location recently and started back up.

 

   I never had things tuned in, and didn't get all the tools I should have.
(Polemaster, Bahtinov, etc)
I'm now gearing up and trying to tune it all up.

 

 Why am I here?
No matter how close I think I am, I never seem to get the images I think I should and I need to see from someone else's OTA to compare.
I had no experience with larger scopes, and I had seen through a few at Chabot, but I didn't get to play with their gear. lol.gif

 

   So, who has an 11" Edge HD or maybe just a 9.25" in the bay area that I can come look through and maybe we can attach my asi 224mc to?
(I'd likely bring mine too so we can see what I'm doing horribly wrong.)

Too bad you did not ask this question 2 years ago.  I was living in the SF Bay area using my C11" EdgeHD and had a 224mc at the time.  Anyway, there are a couple of local astronomy clubs that you can reach out to for help.  Just search for them on the internet and I am sure someone will step up to give you a hand.
