  1. Unfortunately it doesn't fit. Looks like I need the adapter.
  2. Just wondering what software did you use for taking the Video and did you focus by eye?
  3. Thank you. If my results are as good as yours then ill be a happy chap!
  4. Thanks. The 2" adapter was previously used on a refractor telescope so ill have to see.
  5. Thanks ever so much both. I'm going to borrow the 2" pieces and see how I get on. Do you know where I could get the push adapter?
  6. I think I'll just stick with the eyepieces as they are. With a 2x Barlow I will have effectively a 4mm, 8mm, 12mm and a 24mm. I have been offered a very nice 38mm 2" eyepiece and 2" diagonal that comes with a 1.25" adapter. Which I think will complete my setup. What I would like to know is... Would putting a 2" diagonal on a nexstar8se be a sensible thing to do? That way I can use the hyperions and Barlow with the 1.25" adapter and the 38mm 2" for wide views? Thanks everyone
  7. I have a similar set up and can't wait to have a go. Great pics!
  8. Thanks guys. The more I learn the harder it becomes to make a decision. I was almost ready to go ahead and buy a couple of 1.25 inch baader hyperions then it came to my attention that i may be able to 'upgrade' to 2inch eps but i still can't make my mind up and it's getting very frustrating lol. Choosing to get married and have kids wasn't even this complicated!
  9. 1.25inch or 2 inch? Hi. I am sorry of its been asked before but what are the benefits of the 2 inch eye piece and are they worth the extra cash?! More specifically is it possible and should I upgrade my nexstar8 to a 2inch diagonal and eyepiece given that there are some good deals out there?
  10. Sort of!? I'm getting them based on the good reviews and the fact i can get a couple at a reasonable price. I knew they had fine tuning (except the 24mm which I'm getting) but perhaps I wrongly assumed they were just fine tuning rings? My main concern is still wether or not my Barlow will 'downgrade' the optical quality of the view and i need to upgrade or wether my ostara ones wil suffice. Thanks for the help everyone btw. Its appreciated!
  11. Thanks. I think I have made my mind up with the 8mm and 24mm Hyperions. With a 2x Barlow I will then also have a 4mm and 12mm effectively. I'm just not sure if my £35 Ostara 2x Barlow will do the Hyperions justice?!
  12. Thanks stargazer. It certainly makes a lot more sense that it did before. Ill read it through again when I'm home from work
  13. Thanks. If barlows in that price range are adequate for the Hyperion then my Ostara Barlow will probably do the job!
  14. Hi. How does the zoom compare with Individual eyepieces? I have an olivon 8-24mm zoom and I'm undecided. It has a yellow tinge compared to my plossl Ana's doesn't seem to have as good contrast. The Hyperion may be a better option for me as in currently looking for new eyepieces? Thanks. Richard
