  1. nice one mate just nicked about 50 and ill try to see how many i can see through my 6" refractor
  2. to save time changing over the scopes, ive scene a similar set up but it seems ill be changing over the ota's from veiwing to imaging by the sounds of it, unless im convinced otherwise.
  3. thanks for the help guys i would like to see them david
  4. hi, i am saving for a Skywatcher Explorer 200P with neq6 pro goto mount, ill be using it for visual purposes for the time being until i save for a apo refractor for imaging, say a 80mm or 100mm, could this mount handle these scopes together and how would i go about putting them together.(what equiptment would i need to buy etc) thanks dave
  5. Thanks for the help guys, just read the artical and its a good little read, although i have a feeling im just skimming the surface, all in all i cant wait till i get my first scope for AP, found one that looks good its the Skywatcher Evostar 100ED DS-Pro Outfit, it comes with a reducer to take it from f/9 - f/7.5, it also comes with the HEQ5 syntrek, would this mount be sufficiant coz anything bigger is out of my pay load.
  6. on a personal note, just wandering why i cant see the photo i uploaded of myself.
  7. What about the scopes claiming to be esspcially for imaging i think there called astrographs or some thing? found one Skywatcher Quattro f4 Imaging Newtonian,Anygood.
  8. thanks for the help, im glad i asked because if i listened to the advertisment and how awesome most of these scopes are for AP then id have a scope thats not up for the job. Conclusion:- its all in the mount.
  9. Thanks kris, so what is a slower scope like rgt with f/8 be more suited for? Have been looking at the Celestron Omni XLT 150mm at f/5, would this be more suited for AP, the mount that comes with this is a CG-4 equatorial mount, although it has no motor drive or goto its just a regular mount, would the goto be a requirement for AP, if not what sort of assesories do you require for AP
  10. thanks for the help guys, you are right johnny its does come with the advanced c g5 mount from harrison telescopes. i suppose really what i am asking is it better to get a refractor like this for photography or a reflector (with a good mount). just had a look at the c6 ngc and its not to shabby indeed , do you think that the mount would handle the c10 for AP? i have been looking for a apochromatic refractor because ive heard they have superp optical views for photography but im just not that rich so trying to find an alternative, i was previously going to buy a 12" dob before getting interest
  11. Great stuff especially from the beginners, gives me hope for when i start next year, keep it up.
  12. I have been pondering on a new scope, initially a dobsonian reflector, althought after thinking about it more my intrest has gone into photography, i have been reading a bit into it and mainly found that refractors are more suitable, firstly i would like a bit of advise for a quality refracting scope suitable for photography without spending the world (£1000 budget), i have found one (title) but have little knoledge on the right scope for the job, open to all suggestions. thanks david
