  1. i still didnt figure out what i am doing wrong ! so frustating !! the first thing that crossed my mind is probably an bad alignament..i assume. still managing to browse amoung the settings...hope next time i can figure out. did you removed the built in IR filter??
  2. i got mine almost a week ago, but it was too damn cloudy to give a try...cant wait !!!!
  3. thanks also for the info guys, i am about to buy mine soon...
  4. hello boys and girls ! i was so tired of waiting for warmer days, so i decided to take out my scope on saturday. temp was around 0 dgr C. not bad. after having a power tank failure in the first 15 minutes of my session, i decided to unblock the holding clamps and to a "manual" move of my scope. the main reason was also to test my new IDAS LP filter. well, THAT WAS MONEY SPENT WISE !! i live in a very polluted city, in the middle of an industrial park. the first thing that capture my attention is how black was the background while using the filter.i wonder how the filter will perform in a dark sky!! cant wait!! i never seeing Orion nebula that way(i am aware that using an UHC filter it will give me another WOW...but it's on my Xmas list)! a big WOW. i used my hands to see also the Pleiades, Jupiter and several other stars-but no DSO; not having any "juice" to properly use my scope, this is just a "raw" session. i hope in the future to pay more attention at my power tank. i will come back with a more accurate feedback, but i was very anxious to test the filter.
  5. cant get enough of it !!!! thanks

  11. Hey there. i do need some help/advice here: as you can see in my pic, i am a quite tall guy and have quite tall scope. i encounter the same issue every time i use my scope and have friends around me ! since the EP on my newtonian is way up there, quite often i need to release the clamps to turn the OTA and to adjust the EP according to my "audience" height ! is quite annoying, cant say "get a chair" and i noticed this issue is disturbing the viewing and the weight distribution of my OTA (the tube slides down several inches!) is there a device/technique that can be used/mounted on my mount to gave me a degree of freedom when doing this ? i remember seeing long time ago some kinda of double rings, bigger than the ones from OTA..cant remember for sure....so, here it is folks..show me the light/path pls..
