Hi Manu, it looks like you may have kept the dew shield on, is this the case?

Very nice job on your mod, looking at doing mine in the next few weeks with a Evostar 90mm, thats why I ask. I am unsure whether to take it off or not, I intend to order a custom cell from Teleskop Express when I order the D-ERF.

I am wondering if I keep the dew shield on I can use the dust cap that came with the scope and keep the cell and DERF in a safe place. If I remove the dew shield and have the cell and DERF next to the objective then I am concerned about dust and scratches on the DERF. I see that your DERF is inside your telescope but my DIY skills are not up to that task so want to keep it simple! :)

Cheers
Steve

thank you
the dew shield on the telescope in white light.
But it is not useful even in H-Alpha
It avoids excessive dust :lol:

Really, no need to worry about this too much unless you have it in close proximity of a Stihl saw cutting up breeze blocks. Normal day to day dust is fine.

Hello Manu, Can I ask please how the Baader D-ERF is being held onto your Skywatcher 102/1000 refractor ? What diameter is your D-ERF ? Is it mounted inside the telescope OTA tube, or is it instead mounted at the front of the telescope? What brand and model number of D-ERF cell are you holding the D-ERF in with (or is it "home made" / 3D printed?) ?

Best Regards,

Alistair G.
