Kasai Crayford Focuser

•September 23, 2022 • 2 Comments

This is the premium quality focuser. A solid body and smooth focusing with large focus knobs.

BORG M68.8 adapter is also available. So the focuser can be attached with BORG M68.8 drawtube or directly to Series 80 tubes along with 7801.

With BORG 72FL

This is a really good focuser. Highly recommended to BORG users. And most likely compatible with EAF motor unit.

Solar Broadband with Player One Saturn-C

1- The colleague – Dave took a very clean solar broadband shot taken by Player One Saturn-C camera.

Take a look at the full resolution image. Very nice!

2- I start my project too. At least I could reach focus and align X/Y axes of a solar guider today.

120mm ERF + BORG 90FL + Daystar Quark + Player One Apollo-M Max & Solar Guider

I saw a Player One camera first time. A camera body is the nice finish, and more lightweight and compact than I thought. Looking very good!

BORG 72FL F3.6

•September 16, 2022 • Leave a Comment

This is 1st light taken by Odd Hoydalsvik in Norway, with BORG 72FL and Starizona’s Apex ED reducer.

If someone are looking for the faster(F3.6) and the wider(260mm focal length), This should be one of your good options. It creates quite sharp image entire APS-C sensor. And good travel scope in its size and weight.

Thank you, Odd. Enjoy astro imaging with a new scope!

Player One Camera Front Window

•September 14, 2022 • Leave a Comment

I wasn’t sure if Player One published the type of a front window for each camera. So I uploaded here for your reference.

As described above, only one color camera has in-camera IR blocker. So pay attention to blocking IR or not for your expected goal. Player One’s concept gives us more wide-variety of options to enjoy the different and new types of imaging.

In fact, one of color cameras like Neptune-C II(IMX464 sensor) has very high sensitivity in NIR as shown below. Actually NIR is higher than VIS. So no in-camera IR blocker fully makes sense.

Some Player One filters are in stock as well.

M31 & M33 thru BORG 90FL with Fuji X-T3

•September 9, 2022 • Leave a Comment

These are results taken by a friend – Hide last new moon weekend.

Believe or not, these were taken by 700mm focal length with a single tracking mount!! So no DEC corrected.

BORG 90FL with 1.4x teleconverter + Fuji X-T3 + Kenko Sky Memo R

He showed me the guiding graph. DEC was just a horizontal line all the time. Perfect polar alignment was made. Super well done, Hide!!
