Hello all, I live in south London and for some unknown reason practice astrophotography. (and I certainly need the practice).


I use a Skywatcher ED80 and Celestron C8 on a belt driven HEQ5. I have been playing at this for about three years now with some success but shift work commitments and bad weather really restrict the amount of time spent in the garden.


Best Wishes to all




Mike, My Flikr Site:(if you are interested) 

HEQ5 mount with belt mod on pier. SW ED80, Celestron C9 XLT, SW ST80, QHY8L, ZWOASI 120MC, Mammut Lyuba L429, QHY 5T plus literally a shed load of other bits and pieces.
