    Here is one of them. This is my mono lunar and planetary imaging train with a DMK21AU618 mono cam, Nautilus powered filter wheel with Astronomik IIc LRGB and IR filters, a TV 2.5x Powermate with adapter, and an Orion 2" centering adapter (great value for money!). In this shot it is plugged into my C11 Edge HD SCT with a Feathertouch focuser driven by a Starizona wireless Microtouch power focusing motor. This kit make LPI fun and easy...

    Clear Skies, Brian

    Glad some more folks added their rigs, made me look and realise I still had not updated my own! Age is a terrible thing,lol. A lot of really nice rigs there, good to see them. Eventually I did get round to getting some pic's of mine so here they are.

    The SCT (C9.25) Rig, Pier mounted EQ6 Pro


    Reflector (SW150PDS) alongside SCT, EQ5 Pro


    Closer Shot of the two scopes


    Refractor (C80ED) atop a Manfrotto Tripod, White filter fitted


    20x80 Binos. The Tree's are now no longer there.


    When conditions permit I seem to use the reflector and the refractor most. Skies have to really good here to make the SCT worthwhile, mind you , I tend to push the FL with barlows ( f50 can be fun on the moon! ).

    Heres my favourite setup right now. I am loving my Skywatcher ED80 quite a bit just now. I have a dew removal setup, but its not too tidy, need some cable ties or an organiser of some sort.
    Just got a cover today, so I can setup in the daylight and leave it covered till either I get up or its dark.

    The pier was a custom job built locally, its on the forum here under 'Pier Mount Project' I think. Cheaper than a bought pier!!!

    I am using BackYard EOS V2, lots of improvements over v1 and very stable (Thanks to Guylain!!).
    TheSkyX, serious version, PixInsight for processing and Phd for guiding.

    Thanks for looking and Clear Skies to all

    Hello Ken,

    nice to see what I'll need when, on one nice day, I'll switch from the classical film photography to the digital chips.

    Thanks for that great detail
