  1. That's a great idea, Picture of the month for sure
  2. Thanks Spaceboy. I bought a pair of 10X50 bins recently from Lidl. Haven't had a chance to try them out yet but probably won't be much addition at £18.
  3. Can anyone tell me how many degrees the Pleiades cover in the sky. I am looking for an ep that has enough tfov to take it all in one go.
  4. You are correct Doug, i made a hash of the original link. You got in just before i had a chance to correct it.
  5. Not a problem John, i'll update on here when i get a chance to use it.
  6. Thanks everyone, i bought it! If its almost as good as a Televue Nagler it must be pretty good (although i have never looked through a Nagler).
  7. I just came across this when browsing ABS and wondering if they are any good. http://www.astrobuysell.com/uk/propview.php?view=46553 I would be interested to know how it would perform in my scope at f6?
  8. I look forward to your final report Russ. The 35mm would give a 6mm exit pupil with my scope so i think i'd be ok. Also as John stated its not an overly heavy ep and shouldn't upset the balance of the Dob too much.
  9. Thanks guys. They sound really good for the price. I'm considering the 35mm for the extra fov over my 32mm plossl.
  10. Can anyone confirm if these are the same ep. I have read reports stating that they look identical and are available in identical focal lengths. If they are one and the same the Aero has to be a bargain.
  11. Thanks again for all the response's guys. I have came to a decision and its going to be the ED100. I hadn't considered the whole cool down time of the Mak and as i want it to be grab and go its not really ideal. I plan to have the mount permanently set up (covered when not in use with a rather large modified wheelie bin) and just lift the scope out of the garage and ready to go within minutes. I hope to build a better observatory in the coming months to house all my astronomy gear but that may realistically be in the new year. Anyway, i really appreciate all the advise and will post some pics on arrival of new baby!
