  1. The solid one means less light reflections on the mirror . It will also suffer from less dew. I would go with the solid one.
  2. We're going back... it's official!

    I see that other countries have said they are going to the moon as well. Would that be the reason the U.S.A , has decided to go back.
  3. Great Astronomy YT channel.

    Very good . Loads on there to look at.
  4. Moons of Neptune and Uranus

    I think more aperture is the curse of this hobby. Always want a bigger one Chris .
  5. Moons of Neptune and Uranus

    That is a very good image Chris.
  6. Do these EQ5 Gears look normal?

    The play in my CG-5 is the same. I adjusted the motor like you. You have just got to watch the gears do not bind.
  7. Deep Sky Imaging PC - best spec?

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-i7-7700HQ-Graphics-Windows-7RD-833UK/dp/B0735FQVP6/ref=sr_1_1/259-2077228-7306747?ie=UTF8&qid=1512040982&sr=8-1&keywords=msi+gaming+laptop&refinements=p_89%3AMSI This is what I am using. Will need a bit of work out of the box to get the best out of it. Had it about 2years now. Battery life is only about 4 hrs max. Done loads of imaging with it. Very pleased .
  8. Plato and Valles Alpes

    That has come out very good. well done.
  9. Loads of items for sale

    Sorry Peter , did realise that. My apologies.
  10. Loads of items for sale

    The price of all the items are listed in the first post , just not repeated with the pictures.
  11. Spoilt myself in the blackfriday sale

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06X92NQYF/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Got this as a warehouse deal for £189 on Amazon. Very pleased.
  12. I had a C11 & sold it for a CPC 800 HD. I get a lot more use out of this , because it is so easy to set up & use. APM 152 refractor is what I would go for. Bigger is not always better sometimes , as I found out. A lot of the time I ended up using my 4" refractor, that is why I sold it in the end.
  13. The Outer Planets & Moons

    Very good. To get the moons as well is really amazing.
  14. A Good Night for Uranus and Neptune!

    Very good Reggie. . What sort of Mag was that taken @ , to get the pictures. Just wondering if I could get that , with a webcam.
  15. Starsense for Celestron

    https://www.firstlightoptics.com/slt-series/celestron-starsense-accessory-for-celestron-mounts.html As they are £289 new, I would go with that. Any problems & FLO will sort it out strait away. I would say that is £50 over priced. Should have no problems with a new product. S/hand .
