Purple Mars

I have found some web-cams have trouble with the Auto White Balance at low light levels. Setting the White Balance to one of the fixed modes might help.

Grand Canyon Panorama

I use a hand held camera and a $35.00 program called Quick Stitch. The non compressed picture looks even better. I will post some others when I get home. This was Okie-Tex starparty 2000.

Gem or blem- Meade Blue Starfinder 8" EQ

Posted By John Love

It looks like a Meade 826. They were made up to the mid 80s befor they came out with the Starfinder series. The focuser is not stock, they came with a 1.25" rack and pinon focuser. They had really good mirrors.

Oh...The blue color was not stock. The tubes were white "fiberlite". I kinda like the blue myself.

Question from a maybe wanna be newbie

Posted By John Love

I may be wrong, but as I remember a HR2510 would do SSB. It would be a good starter rig for 10 meters. I think I talked to a couple of hams using them for mobile ops.

You will be much happier with a G-11 or a AP-900 if your budget will allow for it.
