Need to start on Minor Planets next

I've just realised that in the last 15 months I have seen all the planets. Uranus in November 2015, Mars and Jupiter in Spring 2016, Mercury as it transited the Sun in early May, Saturn in June, Venus is very visible in the evening sky at the moment, and I saw Neptune through the scope last week.

Finder scopes

My Celestron Evolution 9.25 came with a small red dot eye finder which has had some success bu i now feel it needs to be replaced with something a little more precise. Any direction or advice about what I might consider as an upgrade would be very much appreciated.

Thank you

Logitech C270 Convert to Astro Cam

Hi there

I'm in the middle of converting a Logitech C270 into an astro cam. I am moving the whole circuit over into a small enclosure from maplins as this will be 'squarer' and allow easier fitting and alignment of the film case on the front.

There seems to be 2 different thought on 2 parts of this mod. the infra red filter and the lens. Has been either left in place or removed in ...
