TSA102 => TOA-35 Flattner => Atik 460EX I can't figure out how to connect a CCD camera to my TSA102. The TSA102 has a CAA attached with the 2"Compression fitting. I can then insert the TOA-35
Re: EM-11 rough guiding in RA Here is an example of the guiding graph I am getting with PHD2. This was with "on camera" guiding using the TAK guiding cable. Note that I was dithering at

Re: Tak FSQ 85 and football shaped stars when cold Marty, Your analogy of using the word 'football' to describe the star shape does not quite work in the UK. Footballs here are round :) But to get back to your
