  1. Hi. You could use Babel Fish,if you want,to translate from English to Greek, http://babelfish.yahoo.com.(I tried and it is OK). As for the blowers,(they are three of them),one,is indeed cooling the Camera,while the others,are used for the scope itself. (He has opened holes from the inside,and as he says,it is very difficult and delicate job). Theodore.
  2. Thank you all for your welcome. And yes,I tried to learn about the types an the prices of the various telescopes,but as usually for a beginner,I was fully confused. I began from the 99.00Euros SW,and climbing up,I looked at the Equinox 120 ED APO,the Intes Alters an STFs,passing through the Mak Newtonians,such as the SW 190 DS- PRO!Yes all of these. Finally,I had a talk with a guy who is a star photographer,who cleared many things to me. He told me that if I had to look through a telescope,being in Athens,it would be difficult to observe many celestial objects,because of the many lights of the city,which "pollute" the sky. Then he told me,that the APO scopes I wanted,like the Equinox 120,were photographic scopes and not image ones,which are those I want,so he insisted that I had to go for a Newtonian,which would be cheap as well. Another issue for me,is that I don't want a scope to be heavy,because I have a sensitive right hip. So,I am here,and it is why I have registered,hoping that I learn enough about Astronomy and telescopes,so as I finally buy a scope good for me. Regards, Theodore.
  3. Hi. I have found some pictures from a SW 190 ED,sold a year ago, by a guy in Greece,into which you can see the blowers that he has put. AstroVox :: ?????????? ?.???????? - ???????? SkyWatcher Maksutov Newtonian 190mm ??????? Theodore.
