    Hi From Essex

    welcome to sgl clear skies tonight
  3. just looking at them does it matter if they arent completely flat if that makes sense if you look at them they look slightly twisted is this correct? does it matter ?
  4. I need some help i know ive posted loads of threads about i wanna get a 8" dob etc but im thinking of changing my mind and going for something else. Ive been checking out ppls astro photos and thinking wow i would like to get into that and have some pics on the wall of what ive taken. i think it would be great to look at them and think wow i took them. The question ive got if i do decide to get into it does the scope have to be as good aperture as a dob or does it work differently to aperture.
  5. i used to live in wallington up until a few months ago light pollution round there is a nightmare at least you have the downs just down the road which isnt to far.
  6. Was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on this scope as ive seen a second hand one for a good price with mount £175.00 wanted to know what i could expect to see etc all the normal questions also which is better a 8" dob or this
