  1. Welcome Simon. I just (past week) bought the SLT 127 to replace a 5 year old 70mm refractor. First impressions of the mount and the scope are favorable. I did think of going for the SLT 130 reflector. In my case the fact I have to move the scope through three doors between storage and setup and the fact that much of my observing needs to be close to the zenith (postage stamp garden) made the shorter MAK the better choice for me. YMMV. Peter
  2. Thanks Richard. Unfortunately I am usually at choir practice on Monday nights (plug for Collegium Laureatum performing Verdi's Requiem on Sat 17th Dec, West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge) but I will keep and eye on the SNAA website. Peter
  3. Thanks for the kind words everyone. The clouds did lift for long enough early this evening to get the scope out to play - much to the unhappiness of family members wanting help with other items. An expensive DIY dew shield (black card and duct tape) worked a treat. Compared to the older 70mm refractor it was good to be able to find many of the double stars which I frequently failed to find before. Peter
  4. Just to say hi after lurking as a guest for a while. I'm in the process of upgrading from my five year old 70mm refractor to the Celestron 127 SLT so now its a case of waiting for the clouds to clear. New scopes definitely deserve the title of "cloud magnets!" Peter
