Yep same one. Was a bit disappointed actually

What can handle a lot of gear? Your mount or is it the rear end of the new OTA?
Back end of the scope.
Yep, I'm pretty on top of what to get if I go the Borg way - their home website - Japanese version has a lot of information - I speak the lingo so no probs in my asking questions first before buying

That TS scope you bought seems pretty sharp or perhaps you oversharpened the DPP - however which way it was doesn't matter because the information got to be in there in the first place otherwise the results will be interpolated data (SISO-like if you know what I mean) - I'm sure you're aware that the moon is not a suitable candidate to test the TSFlat2 - really looking forward to your starfield test results!

Damn the weather!! - I can't get any tests done with mine for the Equinox80 plus the new OAG I ordered for the new CCD camera has arrived too - my plan is to complete the tests before the next Tammin! Chomping at the bit!!

The imaging didn't require much processing, visually I was able to split binary stars which I couldn't do with my DOB. I only had enough time last night for a quick set up for the moon, 2 star alignment, focusing from the back of the camera not a PC. Very rough to start with, need more weather certainty before setting up properly.
