  1. I would really like a 6” Classical Cassegrain but the focal ratio offered by Telescope service is only F/12 and I’m not sure how much the largish central obstruction plus the secondary support vanes are going to affect planetary contrast. I doubt it will be any better than my excellent C6 but hopefully someone will post a review......
  2. The Full Moon did look great last night
  3. Welcome to SGL @Spock Junior and good luck with the restoration
  4. Mods - please close this thread - thanks
  5. Point the lens towards the Sun to give the fungus a good dose of UV, then send it to a specialist for cleaning and collimating.
  6. Does anyone own one of these FPL-53 doublets? https://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p9868_TS-Optics-PhotoLine-102mm-f-7-FPL-53-Doublet-Apo-with-2-5--Focuser.html Online reviews seem to be very scarce. I would appreciate any real world user feedback on this scope. Thanks.
  7. @jadcx Great looking scope - the 2cm dewshield extension does not sound much but how much depth does this give to the front of the optics ?
  8. A 5” APO Not too big or heavy Cools fairly quickly Tack sharp views Excellent contrast View from the back Looks like a proper telescope
  9. Yes it’ a 5” APO You may find this review interesting...... http://scopeviews.co.uk/SW127Mak.htm
  10. Good choice - try to store the OTA somewhere cool for best results
  11. FS128 - some nights x140, some nights x350, most nights x180 to x220
