  2. Best stay well away from the Dob church then
  3. As above. I believe the 10" Dob is the Goldilocks size.
  4. You are not going to see H-alpha light in a nebula visually. It's far too dim in the available light from an emission nebula. So Ignore the H-aplha pass of any nebula filter for visual use. The difference between a UHC and an O-III filter is the UHC passes O-III & H-Beta lines (both of which we can see). The O-III filter obviously passes just the O-III lines.
  5. And I feel privileged that you deemed to share that with us.
