  1. i am looking to buy a new telescope and would like to know will i see a great deal of difference between a 7inch mak ie a skywatcher 180pro and either a meade or celestron 10inch sct i am assuming that should i wish to venture into astro photography in the future the larger scopes would be better than the smaller or am i wrong? thoughts and input appreciated.
  2. look for a tal1vnewtonian telescope great optics on these and built like a tank but easily managed by one person to set up and take down i had one of these for years before upgrading to a tal2m.
  3. i know i'm in the £2.000.000 monthly draw and guaranteed a piece of that just dont know how big a piece yet i will have to wait until saturdays presentation at vale resort hotel hensol,and i've only been playing for 4 months!!!!
  4. After quite a few years in the financial wilderness, and having had to sell all my gear to pay bills i am now in the very fortunate position of having my post code come up in the postcode lottery so hopefully financia lrestraints will no longer apply and i want to get back to observing asap my question is this from a visual aspect will i see a great deal of difference between a 7inch sct ie a skywatcher 180pro and either a meade or celestron 10inch sct i am assuming that should i wish to venture into astro photography in the future the larger scopes would be better than the smalleror am i wrong? i had thought of a 16inch truss dob but a stroke last year has left me with aleft side weakness and i don't think i could move a BIG DOB even a truss dob around easily all your thoughts and input appreciated.meade o r celestron sct which is the better 10inch sct ???? ps i say i have no financial budget but i've not bee told what i have won yetand wont know until prizegiving this saturday phillip
  5. Sounds a bit iffy to me !!
  6. Glad you got everything sorted out and welcome back, you've been missed.
  7. I reckon Lundy island 12 miles off North Devon would be a 1 or 2 bortle
  8. Well the winds have dropped and the rain has stopped...and i can just see the moon peeking through the clouds. Dare I hope that it will clear later tonight ????
  9. The "joys" of being a British astronomer
  10. Also bear in mind Royal Mail will charge you around £20 for taking your customs fee off you, do you know anyone planning on visiting the states who could bring you one back in?
  11. I think its under tools (f2), solar system editor, there is a list of comets you can download the orbital elements for.
  12. You will find that every courier company will not insure certain items , ie glass, china, so anyone sending a telescope by courier would do so uninsured for loss or damage and they are not prepared to take that risk as a seller.
  13. Here is another link with more ebooks and other links for ebooks on the page as well. Looks like NASA intend to keep releasing these for the near future.
  14. They might be easily recollimated but if so why hasn't the seller had them fixed themselves. I'd be very wary of buying ....even if they are a bargain price.
