  1. Can anyone tell me if these are good for imaging on my laptop? I use a 8inch Dobsonian with synscan. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231843859041?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Thanks in advance
  2. You could try lugging it up the Wrekin down the m54. Great views from the top.
  3. Your new scope is a very good choice indeed and its one of the most popular scopes being sold today. You will get excellent views of the planets and dso targets. After having mine a few months I upgraded the eyepieces to bst ones which work great. A decent Barlow is also a good purchase when the funds allows. The only problem I personally had with the scope was with the straight through finder scope which due to recent surgery I found uncomfortable to use. Once I purchased a right angle finder to replace the stock one then all was well and dandy. I have since upgraded to the goto flextube type of one, but that was only because it was a deal I couldn't refuse but it's still the same views as the old one but easier for me to use. Im sure once you get used to the scope then you will understand why its so popular. Good luck.

    Welcome Sammy. Your getting a very good scope and I know you will enjoy it.
  5. Hi, Ive just bought that telescope too although from secondhand. Would be nice to know how you get on with those EPs with youre scope. Im using the bst with mine and they work fine.
  6. I seen this in the magazine and its very impressive indeed.
  7. Welcome back to the fold.
  8. I have the 25mm and the 8mm. Both are very good but the 8mm is excellent in my 200p.
  9. I find it very satisfying looking at the moon in a 25mm EP.
  10. As above it needs a quick clean and go from there.

    Hiya Pete, welcomd to the big SGL.
  12. Also I dont think there is such thing as a bad scope, its just a fact that some scopes are better than others.
  13. Good luck in your choice buf if you go for the aldi one then at least you wont be wasting to much money if its not the hobby for him. If he does get into the hobby then he can always upgrade when money is available to spend.
