Actual Setup

Description

Final Setup combined C11 and Sharpstar 2032 on EQ 8 on folded pier.
Cameras are normally Nikon D750a at the Sharpsstar and Nikon D5100a on the C11. Can be changed according needs. Guiding is done via Mgen and small guiding scope which works fine even for the long focus of the C11.
Small scopes can be installed on top of the C11 for wide field photography or seperately on the NEQ6.

Picture A is the Sharpstar 2032 on NEQ6 for the mobile setup. The NEQ6 is modified on both axes with belt drive and has a much more rigid polar alignment block. I could easily use the C11 and the SW 120ED together (26KG) for astrophotography on that mount.
The only light source in the neighborhood is on the houses in the background (1 single street light).

Other refraktors are:
Lacerta 72mm ED doublet f6,5 with reducer 0,85x, f 432mm or f 365mm
Sharpstart 76mm triplett f4,5, f 342mm
SW 120mm ED doublet f6,5 with redcuer 0,85x, f 900mm or f 765mm
