I always bin 2x2 for guiding , always seems to work for me
There are not any in the Uk , So I will be guinea pig and get one ordered and see how we get on
so its taken a long time to get a lacerta kit for the loadstar in the uk ( arrived today ) , but with the release off sgp 3.0 and focus lock integration , I am the guinea pig in the uk
Lets see how we get on and will report back ASAP – cue loads of clouds
do we have any instructions on how use the lacerta in sgp
I.e do I set up focus lock software to connect to phd and my focuser or does sgp control the focuser with input from focus lock ?
Please excuse my ignorance here, since I have never used a Newt, but what does this mean? Since I am getting a Newt this spring it may be important to me.
Good on you Harry - I am watching this with interest as I thought I’d give it a go this year. I’ve got the KISS adapter for the Lodestar and the QSI…
I think this is because the newt is a reflector and so doesn’t suffer from chromatic aberration. This means that the focus position with different filters will be the same as long as they have the same optical thickness - are parfocal.
Its as chris says I use baader filters and do not need to refocus between filters a very good frac is needed
to be free of chromatic aberration
I have a kiss on order , don’t know when it will come ASAP I hope
I am hoping for a few hints from Mr SGP on the use of it , as I do not have a lot clear skies to play with
so as much info as poss would be good
