Most of the photos where through my Celestron C8 SCT. Some piggy backed through other camera lenses. Including a Schmidt Camera for the Hale-Bopp comet photo... (old school - film)Do you still have some of these? I would love to have one, although I would have to wait until next week. On a side note, those are some pretty spectacular photos jayrob. Were you using a ritchey chretien scope, or a SCT? I recently purchased an f/6.310" LX200 on a GEM, and am slowly gathering what I need for astrophotography.
That's all there is to it Psytrance, it was the easiest build I did; great starter kit for anyone going into the hobby. I highly recommend it.
Thanks for the props guys! :beer:Jay's kits are absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend.
Would like to point out that the 3V and 5V modules from Fasttech are less than $6 free shipping and low IR.
They have a pot for adjustment and I've found that the highest output for either is setting it for about .43 amps. My last order of 5 of each had 6 out of 10 over 100mw peak and I've seen over 140 on a couple before. Must have ordered about a 100 of them over the past 6 months for my inexpensive projects that you can see in my links. Don't know of any better bargain in modules out there and I've yet to get a dud.
Would say the lowest I've gotten was around 30mw. Some will not like the .43 amp setting so pay attention to what you are doing as you may have to drop it back down. Most come set somewhere around .3 amps. Either one will work the same as a standard 3V module. The 5V one is just rated to handle an input of up to 5V but there's really no more output with that voltage. They ARE different length modules though.
These would be a great addition to jayrob builds that take the standard modules like this and they are fantastic for getting into building your own stuff for as little $ as possible.
Anyways, hope this helps some of you aspiring builders and as always jayrob has some beautiful builds and gets my highest recommendation!
Take a look at my latest combo build in my Sig if you get a chance and maybe you could make a build kit for it to simplify things for others who may be interested (the "Pman special" one) if you still monitor this thread jay
Oh and hi ARG :wave:
Yes the kit will fit any standard 12mm module...Could you use the dx blue-violet module on this build? 100mW 405nm Blue-Violet/Royal Purple Laser Module (3V) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme
