Re: Thursdays Hazy Sunshine 18th April

Nice collection of images here Mark :bow

Your travelling kit produces great images...strange the banding popped up in the Na Quark though. Hopefully it doesn't re-appear!

The belt drive mod looks great...a massive improvement in being able to focus if your hand isn't jiggling the scope!!!

Superb images Marty...well done :bow

I'm envious of the ability to image...two clear mornings in a row and I was stuck in a conference room for both, and the long weekend forecast is for rain :shock: Go figure, LOL.

Re: April 10th - More AR2738

Thanks for your comments and support Stu and Mark :bow

April 10th - More AR2738

I had a beautiful clear day today and obligations to attend a conference at work until early afternoon...but I managed to get a short observing session in before the Sun was lost to the west.

Re: When I win the lottery

Hi all...

I saw this scope at NEAF and it looked odd to me...still does in the pics. Is it me, or is the scope 'flat' on the table (looks like the objective through focuser is not centred on the optical axis)?
