Guiding setup – First Look

Tonight I have come home from work to find a number of parcels had arrived.
Amongst them was one from the fantastic folks over at modern astronomy.

The contents contained a number of items including just about everything to get my guiding system up and running.
I decided on this setup to keep weight down to a minimum and after reading a number of good articles on how well it performs when compared to large setups such as an ST80 it was a no brainer.

The three main components consist of a 9×50 guide scope, a camera adaptor and the camera
Over the coming days I intend to install all the software and get this guide setup put together ready for everything else ready to arrive at the end of the week.

A new adventure begins

Welcome to what at present is the beginning of a new site and what I am hoping will be the start and continuation of adventures that I will be documenting and sharing here.

Please be patent as I begin to populate the site and adding content
