I wanted to sort out my cabling - I have to do something while it's cloudy/raining - so setup my scope to do just that. I took the opportunity to take a picture while it was all set up. I've labelled all the main components - because it's cloudy/raining...

Cheers,
Mario

Well I actually bought it a few weeks ago, and funnily enough that was the weekend of heavy weather and flooding across SE QLD and NSW north coast. I had to make a weekend trip out to Newcastle from my place in Griffith, and had planned to camp overnight before the drive back home. Was all packed and set for a night under the stars, planned a gourmet camp meal, camera gear packed for some star trail shots from the campsite over a few relaxing reds, and instead...howling winds and 80mm of torrential rain!!!

One might call that 'just desserts'. I'm still being hounded by the C.A.N.A.A.

3" Corrector.

Finally, all the adapters, screws and fittings are here so I thought I'd post a pic.

Left to Right, 3" ASA Corrector, TS-Giant OAG, QHY5L II guide cam, Custom ASA to M54 adapter, SX Wheel with M54 fittings, Atik 11000 mono.

This is for a 12" F4 GSO newt.

You can stop the rain any time now thanks
