  1. To bring you back to an Olympus for sale, on yet another forum, £200 with a kit lens: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=721718&highlight=uk John ps. I would still go Canon.
  2. I think I have given a good heads up including a link. You can look at the post without registering. John
  3. Just one other thought. I always consider a possible exit strategy. By this I mean, how easy will it be to sell my camera/kit should I wish either to upgrade or to exit. Following a number of classifieds forums I find that Canon and Nikon sell without too much bother. Other makes, including lenses tend to "stick" on the forums unless they are an absolute bargain. John
  4. Why is this not posted into the constellation section of Astropedia. DOES ANYONE USE ASTROPEDIA??? John
  5. Here is a link to a 1000d canon. You would have to register to post. http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=146057 John
  6. Body only, 7,000 actuations, bought January £175. Not mine, just heads up on another forum. http://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=146057 John
  7. Amanda, I understand that you contribute to Astropedia. Here is a list of Open Clusters, many with links to images and maps. http://astropedia.stargazerslounge.com/index.php/Open_Clusters John
  8. A good barlow or a powermate does help to double your eyepieces. John
  9. Neelam, I have taken one of you images and cropped it a bit and removed some of the noise. You should be able to pick up a nifty fifty on the photography for sale forums. John
  10. Les, Thats a nice image. With this standard, when are you going to sell all that redundant kit!!! John
  11. Rob, I am sorry to hear that your scopes didn't entice anyone to buy. I am pleased that you are staying in the hobby; it must be an omen!!! John
  12. Thank you all for your kind comments. The 400mm is on a 1.6 crop camera that makes it 640mm. I am hoping to buy a tripod and head soon, but there are so many to choose from. I think I will have to pay a visit to a retailer. With a tripod, I will be able to achieve tighter focus. John
  13. I had a try with my new lens last night. Yes, a shot of the moon. f8, 1/160 and iso 200 John
  14. Lulu, I can see what you mean!!! John
  15. Luke, I think Celescope is using two refractors as his main imaging set up. I think they are the Equinox 120 and the Equinox 80. Its always good to look at the gear some of the imagers are using. John
