  8. The formula to work out the reduction for a given spacing on the CCDT67/CCD47 is: reduction = 0.65 - 0.3 x (spacing - 90) / 90 And the resulting reduction in backfocus from no reducer is: delta = spacing x (1 / reduction - 1) so at 85mm: reduction = 0.67x delta = 42.5mm

    Hello Wes and welcome from me too, located on the coast of Norway . Rune
  24. Today
  25. Can you let us know a little more? Any particular targets that interest you? Do you need the scope to be easily transported or carried any distance, or would you need to carry it down stairs? Where would you store it? Scopes range in size and portability quite a bit so it can affect the best choice. As a starter for ten, without knowing any of the above, I'll say the Skywatcher 150P. £9 over your budget, not small but a very decent scope. I'm sure there will be plenty of alternate suggestions which are well worth considering, so take your time! https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dobsonians/skywatcher-skyliner-150p-dobsonian.html
  26. BAT2

    is that BATMAN ... haha LOL ^_=)
  27. Ursa Major galaxies

    Pop the data into this calculator and you can see why it is tricky from an average site. At SQM mag 20 it is tough in a 6 inch scope say, mag 18.5 and it would be impossible. Compared with M81 and 82 which are much easier. http://www.bbastrodesigns.com/VisualDetectionCalculator.htm
