Hi
« on: Aug 08, 2015, 19:44:15 »
Noel Here; been a member for 3 months now, thought I should sign on to the forum.
I've been interested in astronomy for a number of years, but wanted to actually do some astroimaging and so have joined up (as OAS is the fount of all wisdom on the subject locally).

I've collected a suite of kit to start off, but not sure it's all working correctly.  It seems to take an age to set it all up (and then something usually looses connection).  Am currently running an HEQ5 Pro under EQMOD.  My current issues are with tracking (anyone good on Pecreporter or Pecrecorder?).  Are there any standard threads I should read?

See you at the next meetings.

Noel

Pecreporter or Pecrecorder?
, I'll be showing the basic way of doing things for the beginners as I don't want to complicate things. 

See you Tuesday.
