The guide scope 50/210mm with TIS 21AU04 camera mounted on the Apo.


Planetary camera QHY5III715C with 8,2 MP / 1,45 Ám replacing the TIS camera.
Does not need eyepiece projection anymore.


The old StellarVue Nighthawk 80/480mm Achromat which still does a fine job. (This is given to a friend now)


The StellarVue Nighthawk 80/480mm with 50/210mm guidescope on my modified GP mount.


After damaging the Littlefoot controller I ordered a new EQStarPro controller including step motors from Ukraine. Here is the "unboxing" ...


The EQStarPro controller and the RA step motor on the GP mount.


See the Declination step motor on the GP mount.


Here is the FPL53 80/480mm optics I wanted to mount into the NightHawk, which did not mount properly.
This is for sale now.
