Ho large is the solar image att the (new ) nosepeice ? Fron that I guess i can calculate the back(or in) focus needed for differe...

Re: Player One Neptune-M 6.4 MP USB3.0 CMOS Monochrome Astronomy Camera (Sony IMX178 Sensor) # Neptune-M

Hello,

Does this camera show the grid pattern issue in H-alpha imaging that e.g. appears in the ASI 178 with the same sensor ?

Camera for Lunt 50

Hello, I'm looking for advice on the following: So far I have been photgraphing with a ZWO ASI 120MM on a Lunt 50. What camera would/could be a significant upgrade for this scope in terms of better singal/noise and FPS while keeping the full disk view ? Asi 174 seems to be better for much longer foc...

Is it possible/has anybody tried to put a solarquest mount on a wedge (with counterweight ?) like the mechanically similar sky-watcher az-gti mount ? Would it be possible ? Would the tracking of the solarquest be good enough for sort vids trough a Lunt 50. Looking for something portable for the Lunt...

Point Grey Grasshopper3 IMX174 GS3-U3-23S6M-C Mono

Hello,

Does any one have experience wih this camera ? I can get a good deal on a used one. It uses the same C-mos chip as the ASI 174 mm and also can use an external power supply to reduce noise. It also has a higer framerate compared to the ASI 174 mm.

Any thougths ?

Thanks,

Helen
