  3. hi folks, can anyone please suggest a downloadable Luna chart / crater finder?, my daughter has bought herself a pair of binos and is keen to learn. thanks in advance. oops, just found the luna 100 file....
  4. done a bit more research and as it has a chrome barrel its most likely to be a MK 1 and they (and mk2,s) do not have a removable eye cup.
  5. good morning folks, i could do with some help regarding my hyperion zoom, i bought it new recently (old stock) from ABS, i also bought a winged rubber for it, i can find no way to fit this item, i have looked on the mk4 instructions and the mk3 instructions and both say to remove the fitted eyecup and unscrew the top to expose the mount for the winged cup, mine does not have this (or any MK number for that matter) do early hyperion zooms not have this fitting??
  6. why is such a top end eyepiece poor for regular viewing (just curious).
  7. hi folks, could anyone please suggest a decent zoom for solar use on a lunt 60. ta.
  8. free replacement received from bresser, i will keep that as a spare, old one cleaned up perfectly with m/c visor cleaner.
  9. sadly not i am as tech savvy as my old grandad..
  10. hi folks, i have just experienced the lunt blocking filter lens fogging problem, bresser are posting a replacement so i thought i would have a look at the problem lens myself, well under a magnifying glass (10x) the opaqueness looked like bacteria on a petri dish, so i removed it and cleaned it of thoroughly (both sides) using autoglym bike visor cleaner and a cotton bud, followed by a rinse in cold water and dried of with a clean lint free cloth very successful and it is now perfectly clear...
  11. unfortunately lost faith after loosing over $650 to our friend Matt from Florida...

  14. thanks, I don't have PS but it looks like a straight forward software thing.
  15. Hi folks, "might be a bit daft this one" but, is there any design difference between a Barlow for visual and one for imaging??
  16. as the title says, how would I go about it from a straight forward B/W image. thanks
  17. hi folks, I am looking to have a go at radio astro, now, I don't know the first thing about it other than it sounds quite interesting! I have read on hear that you can buy self assy kits, are there any good/bad opinions on these? and were you can buy them, also any suggested reading on the subject (basic overview of how it works and what to expect sort of thing). if all goes well I could be interested in buying some/all the req kit from someone in hear, upgrading or just no longer using it. cheers folks
  18. Hi folks, sometime ago (2015) AN ran an review on the DSO-1 video camera from matt Tudor of astro video systems (us), I consequently ordered one , how many SGL members did the same and how many received there cameras???
  19. thanks folks, the BS,ORION,etc all seem to be generic and therefore price and fave dealer appear to be the only option
  20. Hi folks, could anyone offer any advice on flip mirrors, It seems that most of them are identical apart from the branding logo or am I wrong! thanks in advance

Hi folks, I have been looking at getting a focal reducer, but don't understand what the 0.54x / 0.63x / etc relates to. my scopes are f6.3 and f14. how do I calculate using the 0.54x etc and what does the resulting figure relate to?? this is bound to be something simple I just need to get a handle on it. thanks ken
  22. excellent reply mac, I am looking into (no pun intended) a AVS dso-1 camera with an AVS vareoreducer, do you have an opinion on these.
