  1. Well done John. Sorry I missed your earlier post. Exciting times.
  2. The new telescope being offered by Skylight telescopes has a 101mm f/15 lens made by........Tele Vue! A bit of a surprise to say the least. Here's the link. http://skylight.myshopify.com/collections/the-skylight-refractor/products/copy-of-the-2013-skylight-4-f15-refractor

  4. I know one VERY experienced visual observer in USA who much prefers the TV barlows over the powermates. Ive been using the TV barlows 1.8x & 2.5x for over 20 years,highly recommended.
  5. I too have passed your video on to two people who are interested in starting astronomy. Very helpful. Thanks. Happy New Year.
  6. Great report and very happy you're enjoying it but all those details can be seen in a good 60mm refractor too. It's amazing what a good 60mm can show in good seeing. Your 90mm may be the best bargain in astronomy at the moment.
  7. To be honest I think a SCT is maybe not the best scope for tight doubles. Apperture doesn't rule ALL the time. Sirius is very tough from UK as it's never that high.
  8. Yes 100% sure split in 80mm APM/TMB f/6 with LOMO lens in USA desert. Very good article on cloudynights. Very reliable and experienced observers made it. The very best scopes for double stars are long focus refractors. My 60mm f/17.4 splits Izar eBootis so easily.
  9. I once bought a 2" errecting diagonal from WO and that wouldn't fit my TV Oracle 3, either.
  10. Great to hear you're pleased with it. You do know that photos of a new telescope are mandatory,don't you?
  11. I know that Sirius has been split in 80mm refractor. Seeing is always the factor. I'd love to try it but from Newcastle....No
