  1. We have a few clues as to what space smells like. First of all, there were interviews with astronauts that we were given, when they had been outside and then returned to the space station and were de-suiting and taking off their helmets, they all reported quite particular odours. Astronauts reported the distinctive smells when taking off their helmets following space-walks. Apparently what comes across is a smell of 'fried steak', 'hot metal' and even 'welding a motorbike'.
  2. Hello Telrad, I'm new to the forum. Welcome to Stargazers lounge
  3. I find it highly unlikely that the technique descibed here would benefit the contrast of any reflector telescope. Although, post-observation storing on a cold night at a latitude lower than 0 would prehaps prevent any dew condensation descending onto the primary mirror.
  4. Hello I'm new to SGL having recently acquired a 10" Dobsonian. Firstly, would it be advisable to buy a Zoom Eyepiece, maybe 8mm-24mm (Meade or other make?) Secondly, would I be able to use this Zoom Eyepiece with a x2 Barlow? Thank You
  5. Hello I am new to SGL and have recently purchased an SW 250px FlexTube Auto with 2x Barlow. I have not yet had 'first light' with the new scope, due to cloudy nights; although I hope this weekend are clear skies so that I can get observing. Cheers
