Questar 3.5

Posted By jim phillips

Anyone have any experience using a Questar 3.5 with the Coronado system? Questar sells a "solar observatory" with either the 40mm or 60mm filtere. I will contact them tomorrow but wonder if anyone has any eperience with a 3.5 Q and a coronado system? Thanks

My 10" TMB/APM F/9 apo

Posted By jim phillips

Hello,
I'm attaching a pic of me and my 10" apo below. The OTA was designed and made by Mathias Wirth as a custom project for Markus Ludes. Flats from Berlinerglas. TMB/APM 10" F/9 triplet designed by TMB produced by Lzos. AP 1200 QMD mount. The pic is from last Friday evening (Halloween). I have just made it to the Farm and only gotten my tie off. I was hoping for good seeing so I could make another attempt at imaging Saturn. Seeing turned out to be very good.

Apollo 12 and 14 Landing sites.

Posted By jim phillips

I set up early (roof off observatory at 4:00 in the afternoon. I tried imaging between about 5:00 and 7:00. Lucky that i did because it then clouded up and that was that. Seeing only Fair (7/10) but I was able to image the Apollo 12 and Surveyor 3 landing site in one image and the Apollo 14 landing site next to Fra Mauro in another. 8" F/9 TMB apo, 3X Televue Barlow, K3 Tools, Toucam Pro, registax and a little photoshop.
First the Apollo 14 site next to Fra Mauro. Shown in Rukl Plate 42 (Apollo 12 Landing site is also on this plate).
