New equipment and playing!

Post by ghswen » Wed Aug 29, 2018 4:32 pm

Good morning everyone!

My name is Gordon and I just acquired a Quark. I went though a couple of different ones until I finally got a winner. I have a friend from another forum that has the same setup as mine and I could tell he was getting significantly better results than I was with the first 2. OPT was very understanding and helped me figure out that it was the quarks that were funky. Anyway short story long.... :D Here's one of my images from yesterday.

Scope: Explore Scientific ED80-cf
Mount: Orion Atlas EQ6g

A very warm and sunny welcome Gordon :hamster: you were very lucky to be able to return and try out new Quarks. After 18 months of hassle all I could do was get my money back and run as fast as I could away from my Quark ;)

Would love to see the pic, if you need help uploading or linking the image just let us know.

Good start, Gordon!
