  1. is it best to get a pre flashed one or get the one that hasnt been flashed. what i am saying is basically is it difficult to do the flash yourself
  2. sounds like some of you had some bad luck with the clouds. luckily when i viewed jupiter at just past midnight there was no cloud. this makes a change as to be honest since i bought the scope in june i have probably managed to use it less than 10 times
  3. yes i agree. saturn was very good but jupiter is the better planet to look at even through a small scope like the one i have. very tempted to stay up late tonight but no doubt the clouds will roll in again
  4. have to agree, definetly the best night viewing i had too and seeing jupiter for the first time was the icing on the cake
  5. i have a sw130 and i agree that the mount does wobble a little bit. having spent what i did on the mount and scope i didnt expect a super stable platform for the scope. i think it is a very good scope and i am glad i purchased it
  6. i saw jupiter for the first time last night and it was well worth the wait. the word "wow" came out of my lips when i first came across it with the 25mm ep. after popping the barlow and 10mm ep in, the wow became even bigger. cant wait to get out there and look again
  7. i have a skywatcher 130 and i went for it as it was the largest telescope i could afford at the time. i couldnt get a dob as i have a storage issue especially with the base. i am planning on keeping mine for a while and then maybe thinking about a serious upgrade, to what i dont know yet
  8. I have a sw130 and i have to agree with dropping the goto mount and going for the largest dob you can afford
  9. thanks for that. think i will get one ordered as looking on the net for one was doing my head in. thanks for the info
  10. i take it morgan are a reliable company to buy from?
  11. must admit i agree with you on the mount issue. think in a few months i will look at upgrading myself. thanks for the advice on the eyepieces aswell
  12. thanks for that. i am having some great views with the scope, just wish all this cloud will stay away but may have to rely on the good old cold winter nights
  13. Have looked at the celestron eyepiece kit,any good?
