My guiding solution

Hi all

After a lot of humming and hahhhhing I finally have bought myself some gear for guiding.

I got an Orion ST80 from BINTEL but upgraded to Losmandy rings. I put them together last night on my plate and I must say it seems pretty solid to me, the plate and rings weigh double what the scope does and I reckon it will all be pretty stiff so I am hoping flexure won't be an issue.

I have ordered a QHY5L II mono camera to go with the scope and that should arrive in the next few days.

Hope to get it all working Friday night for a big night Saturday night.

Brett
