    Default Hello from Germany



    Hello,

    my name is Kai, I am 38 years old and live in the near of Wolfsburg, Germany.

    This is my 3rd try to start in astronomy. Actual I use a Vixen VMC110L on a Skywatcher AZ5 Mount and Vixen HAL130 tripod.

    11016998_1569424216650251_6269409324962386073_n.jpg

    I use additional a Pentax K5-II with 12-24mm, 40mm, ... for the first steps in astrophotography, but on a fixed mount there are to many limitations.
    Here you can find some photos: Kai Pernau's gallery | AstroBin

    I like to watch planets, moon and sun

    Welcome to the forum Kai. Nice setup. Have you tried mounting your camera on the AZ5 mount?

    Edit: Oops - just realised its an Alt-Az. Thought it was an EQ mount

    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    Yes, the mount is a little oversized - like my new finder scope: A Baader Vario-Finder 60/250

    But the target is a VMC200L in this Winter. When I haven't enough money for a AZ-EQ5, AZ-EQ6 or EQ6 (haven't decide yet) the AZ-5 must carry it. The AZ-5 Was the cheapest AZ at the time i bought
