  1. Hi, I am thinking of getting some binoculars for my birthday ..... I Have an 8" Newt that I use mainly for imaging, But I would like to have a look around whilst im imaging... I do have an old pair of military binoculars that I am quite good at finding M31 and the orion neb ;-) But they are getting a bit past it now lol ... I am on a budget (like many of us) But the Celestron 15x70 are a realistic price ... just wondered what people thought ?? Im not that small, so I don't think I will have a problem holding them ! and Im not against using a tripod, but would be nice to just take them out and
  2. Some really natural looking images there .... very well done MM
  3. Hi Matt, yes I used a dovetail ... I took the screw thing out of my camera tripod and attached it to the dovetail... I then screwed it into the camera and used washers to make sure it was tight and pointing in the right direction ..... In short I bodged it :grin: Thanks all for the comments
  4. My first attempt at wide field .... EQ5 mount Nikon D200 18 x 105 lens. 28 x 50 secs . I know its not perfect but I am quite pleased
