My New Imaging Rig

Post by gfletcher »

Hi Guys

Having recently sold my 300P Flextube to a fellow amateur (Benjii) i decided that i wanted to get back into imaging.
I bought from FLO the Skywatcher Evostar 80ED Pro Outfit along with the Skywatcher Focal Reducer 80ED and camera adaptor.
Amazing that i sold the Dob and bought this kit which left me up £3 on the deal .

Anyways, hoping to try it out tonight visually and if time allows i may try the guiding setup and do a short imaging session to refresh my memory .(Last image i took was almost 12 months ago )
