G'day from Gympie Qld

Hi All,

been a member for a couple of weeks now and just been lurking trying to garner as much info as possible

Currently just shooting with an Olympus E-M1 MkII and MkIII although I do have a Canon EOS D that has previously been converted to nm Infrared that I am considering having changed to full spectrum to make it better for astrophotography, no rush with that as I don't have a telescope just yet

Running a HEQ5 that I just purchased and the aforementioned Olympus body with a Panasonic Leica 100-400mm lens

Clear skies tonight, so it is full steam ahead

Welcome!

I'm guessing the mount isn't going to have much trouble handling your current setup.

Good move getting a decent mount first up. Wish I had saved a little longer & did the same thing.

Welcome Mark, Just looked up Widgee. Must be nice and dark skies there. Surrounded by forest and national park.
Cheers, Richard.

Thanks Richard, yes
The Clear Outside App, says that I am in a Bortle 2 area.
I get a bit glow in the sky if I shoot east though
