Quote I've been experiencing some trouble with autoguiding lately using the 50mm guidescope. Everything pointed at the problem being that the focal length was too short for the LX50. I tried the RT480 as guide telescope instead, which gave me 400mm guide length instead of ~170mm. The result sure showed that it now was working much better, the stars look round. I think this object is quite nice. Quote
