  • Re: F/6.3 reducer

    You'll need the 6.3 for a Digital Camera.&nbsp; I have both and it's the 'most bang for the buck'

  • Meade Wedge: New design, Old Instructions

    &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I just received my first Wedge yesterday and it's painfully obvious that Meade has changed the design but not the Instructions. &nbsp; You are going to find some parts not shown, and there will be parts in the instructions that you wouldn't get.&nbsp;&nbsp; When you take the Wedge Body out of the box there will be a ...

  • Re: PHD Guiding (The best of times, the worst of times)

    Graham, you're probability right....&nbsp;&nbsp; Thanks for the info. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I used to think that the quickest way to&nbsp;wealth was selling Golf 'gadgets'.&nbsp;&nbsp; It seemed like golfers would pay anything for a better swing.&nbsp;&nbsp; Now I'm starting to think the real money is in Amateur ...

  • Re: Two-Star Alignment

    I finally got a chance to try this last night.&nbsp; I also found the 'Align on&nbsp;Home'&nbsp; selection in the manual so I: &nbsp; 1) Leveled the Tripod manually. &nbsp; 2) Ran 'Align on Home' &nbsp; 3) Ran 'Two-Star Alignment'&nbsp; using Arcturus and Dubhe. &nbsp; It worked great....!!&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; Thanks ...

  • Two-Star Alignment

    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; If I do an 'Easy' alignment and let the scope level itself and then just press Enter when it selects the two stars it wants to use can I then do a 'Two-star' alignment (per the instructions) and have the scope remain level from the first alignment so I can select the two&nbsp;stars I want to use? &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; This is ...

  • Re: Autostar Suite v5 update released

    I just D/L it.&nbsp;&nbsp; I didn't spend a lot of time looking around but I did see that they are trying to support DSLR cameras.&nbsp; I'll see if it works with my Rebel when I get a chance. If anyone finds the release notes could you post it ...

  • Re: First time PEC training

    Gerry, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; If I read the posts above correctly.&nbsp;&nbsp; It sounded like you did a 'Training the Drive', page 60 of my Meade manual, when you wanted to do 'Periodic Error Correction', page 39, and you are saying your GOTO&nbsp;accuracy is off. &nbsp; If I am mistaken, then ignore anything I have ...
