  1. What a fantastic image, definitely going to try something like this. THanks for re-posting.
  2. Silly question this, but I was wondering if anyone has any good ideas about where I should position my new Telrad finder. I have a Skywatcher Skyliner 200p Dobsonian. Ideally I'd like to position it between the focuser and the finder-scope but there isn't enough room. Would it matter if I positioned it just behind so that I can look between the focuser and finder-scope? I am a little concerned that if I do that it might be a bit too far from the front of the scope?
  3. Unfortunately I couldn't find the photo, wouldn't mind looking at it as I am thinking about doing something similar and would be interesting to see what kind of results I might get.
  4. Does anyone have any photos of how they have attached the protective solar film to the smaller apeture on the dust cap of the Skywatcher Skyliner 200P Dob?

  6. Thanks or the advice, as long as it's secure, I can handle Blue Peter. Will be interesting to see what it looks like.
  7. Many thanks to everybody for making sure this was such a great event. It was my first star party and I had an absolutely amazing time. Everyone was so friendly and I learnt so much. I can't wait for next year's event.
  8. jimmyjamjoejoe I am really interested in how you have used the cap on the dust cover to make the filter. I also have a Skywatcher 200p Dob. What kind of results are you getting and have you taken any special precautions to ensure that no extra light gets in and that the dust cap can't come off accidentally? I would be quite interested in seeing some photos of your set-up. Jan
  9. I like the idea of using the smaller apature on my dust cap, I just want to be sure that it won't let any more light in other than the light let in by the solar film. I am thinking about covering the edge with black tape.
  10. I wonder if there is anybody else who has used their scope in this way, some people seem to think this is safe others not so much?
  11. I'm going to try this as well, Martin from FLO also recommended the best thing to do to satisfy yourself that the dust cap will prevent any further sunlight in is to try looking at a bright light indoors first to see if its completely black with the cap fitted in place. . You can use just a couple of bits of tape to secure the cap so a gust of wind cant blow it off.
  12. I am considering buying a solar filter for my Skywatcher 200P Dob, and I wanted to check if anybody knows whether the AstroZap Baader Solar Filter advertised on FLO for 8 inch scopes would fit on my scope?

  14. Also I am really intrigued by the photo of the VIXEN GREAT POLARIS "GPDX" GERMAN EQUATORIAL MOUNT, any idea where I might be able to get one of those?
