  1. Hi guys.

    Just bought a Meade 5.5mm super possl EP. Tried it on Jupiter early Sunday morning. Very good image. Could see the cloud banding too.

    First go with the new EP and couldn't help thinking that the image was a little fuzzy / blurry.

    Think I've ruled out collimatiion. Not sure whether it's the higher magnification, was low on the horizon, not especially dark or whether there is something wrong with the EP.

    Any advice for me guys would be much appreciated.

    Ive seen other people's images from the dob section on this site of Jupiter and Saturn and there lovely and sharp.

    Thanks

  2. Just bought a revelation 30mm 2" EP from telescope house (£37.99). Was going to get the 32mm skywatcher panaview (twice the price) but settle on the revelation after some advice from the chap on the phone. Had a go with it last night. V pleased with it. This is my first wide angle EP so have no basis for comparison. Have I made he right choose or is there a suitable alternative I should buy before I officially welcome the revelation to my EP collection.

    Thanks guys

  3. Well after a few months ownership of my 8"dob I found M81/82 last night. They really are faint fuzzies. Used a book called left turn at Orion to help me star hope there.

    Stayed up until 1am (kept the mrs up too for her to see)

    I've read that with an 8" scope you can barely make out the spiral arms. I could barely see the galaxies themselves. What would help me with this. Higher or lower mag EP's ? I'm just about to order a 5.5mm and a 32mm EP but have read recently about 12/13mm EP's and how good they can be.

    Any thoughts / advice for me would be much appreciated

  4. I took an amazing photo of the moon by holding my iPhone up to the EP the other night. Very impressive and surprising results.

  5. Wow. I didn't even think about the size / weight of the EP. I've got A 2"inch EP adaptor that cane with the scope. Would that help or would the above weight / balance issues still apply.

    Surely people who have the same scope as me have these EP's. I've seen a photo on another thread of some sort of adaptor that's secures the EP in place. Would this help.

    I really appreciate your advice guys. I'm new to this and the last thing I want to do is waste my pennies.
