I like that setup. Nice & clean & tidy. Everything in it's place. Not cables & crap hanging everywhere.

Hi all,

I just bought this scope for $8 for the scope and a H20mm EP and a H6mm EP and the EQ mount. And $5 for the Tripod now I just have to make sure the mount is setup properly and align it to the mackay location and get some clear nights to try it out

Warren for the few dollars you paid, it really doesn't matter it it works or not, not that it wont, nice buy indeed, and it looks pretty good too.

Latest setup although the Canon (thanks Alex was great but I should have kept it) has now been replaced by a QHY8 OSC

Looking nice Colin! what version firmware did you get with your Audiostar?
I'm suprised to see you got the round focus knob where I got the triangular shaped one which is a total pain to make the 'jiffy' mod.

You will love the views though the scope with the binoviewers on.
