    Hey everyone, my name is Mike, I'm 26 years old and I wanted to buy a telescope since I was in school. A few months ago I finally purchased my very first telescope (Skywatcher 150/750 newtonian, eq3-2) and I wanted to be more active in this awesome community. Here are my very first captures I made this year I'm looking forward to whatever is next and I hope to learn from more experienced people in this forum. Cheers, Mike

    Lots of prep work now done, inclcuding making the door swing inwards, which took a surprising amount of time and effort, but finally levelled the last of the concrete at 9:15 tonight... And not too far off the bubble: I had quite forgotten how bloody hard it is as a solo job even with a mixer, and with 48 bags of ballast and cement in there I'm pretty sure I'm going to ache tomorrow...

    The end product. My newly acquired Vixen ED 115 refractor. Collected earlier this evening. P. S. I could not post in "What the postman brought" as I collected it. Lol.

    But they are a con-mans paradise, as all things audio, especially HI-FI, is purely subjective.... Yes, there are lots of things you can objectively measure e.g. frequency response, total harmonic distortion, cross-over response etc. but in the end, it all boils down to how you perceive the experience, and remember, no two pairs of ears are the same, no matter what BS is spouted.

    IMHO as well and thats where the quandary lies currently, at least for UK based observers. With the planets being so low, the seeing conditions are constantly below par due to the amount of atmosphere and other stuff we have to observe them through. So top tier performing eyepieces (with top tier prices) are less likely to give value for a few years yet.

    With a Tak, you are always at the zenith, of performance I think I'll send that to Takahashi as advertising blurb. They might send me a free scope !
