  1. correction it is the 31 nagler and in my TV 101 see approx 4.5 degrees so this set up with the 0111 on the veil is great.
  2. will never depart from my 32 nagler. Are they not made any longer by TV?
  3. I agree - the only way to view the veil is with an 0111 filter. With it in my 32 nagler in my refractor give amazing views.
  4. I just purchased the new one and will try to compare my version from around 2010 to the new one on PNs. If all goes well will give my feedback. However they do make fine filters.
  5. yes, The transmission Percentages for 495.9 and 500.7 are 97.7 and 98.2
  6. Just received a terrific review in S & T (July) by Rod Mollise. Anyone else have the opportunity to try it out?
  7. thank you very informative. As I noted above the manfrotto 222 is no longer produced but now they have the 322rc2 - any using it? Also, does anyone know how the oberwerk or helios compares to the new AP 16 x 70?
  8. thanks chaps, I am seriously considering the oberwerk 15 x70 with a monopod. I like those trigger grips. The 222 is no made by manfrotto - they now make a joystick type but don't think would work for binoculars. Hard to find others but will check the above out. Oberwerk has one and think it was originally made by a company named Garrett. After using a TV NP-101 for so long and will continue to use hope not disappointed with the binos.
  9. thanks videos are quite helpful. I am going to check out the trigger grip does the head have a ball in it?
  10. They are a very personable and responsive team. I have never had a problem with one of them immediately getting on the phone to answer and inquiry or give advice. That is why they are quality through and through.
  11. in my 8 inch meade f/10 can go 31 nagler and that takes me to approx 1.29
  12. As for amateur scopes I think apo refractors - my 4" TV show great color. BUT a week ago I had the life time experience of spending an evening viewing through the Hooker 100" telescope on Mt Wilson, California. YES that is the one that Hubble used to discover that the universe expands. We observed a number of objects such as the snowball and saturn nebulae - colors were out of this word. For the first time we viewed a hydrogen star (never heard of it) - a white star with a beautiful red ring surrounding it. So, at 100 in a good location you can see real colors. Saturn & Neptune were also a knock out. This was dream come true experience.
  13. I have the Astronomik uhc and Lumicon O111 - both are quality filters and both work exceptionally well in my 4" fract. However, the darker the location the better.
  14. I have the astronomik uhc and lumicon O111 and both are high quality and work very well in my 4 and 8 inch scopes.
