  1. easy, building an observatory. the best accessory ever Ian
  2. LO Mate, thought you'd find you're way 'ere eventually. we'll have to meet up sometime. Ian
  3. can't say I've tried the side by side but I got a WO ZS66SD to go with my 9.25 and it's a great little scope. in fact it was my most used scope until I got the Vixen. sadly the 9.25 hardly get a look in these days. Ian
  4. but if you're imaging the dim stuff it's very useful. Ian Ian
  5. I can't think why James, as you want to try some imaging take a look through the archives here and on UKAI and see how many imagers use the ED80, then you may get a feel for what they can do and how popular they are. Ian
  6. another vote for the ED80 here, unfortunately there's no such thing as a one scope does everything but the ED80 isn't that far away from it within your budget, just don't expect to get a huge image scale on the planets. Ian
  7. having another play with the 4021 before I have to hand it back. I didn't like the effect the reducer was giving with the Vixen so I thought I'd have a go without. I've only got three frames so far for the crescent and this is the result after 35 mins in Ha. and 50 mins in 5 min subs for M27 both through the Vixen 103s in Ha. and reduced to 50% I'm still having a few issues with the flats for some reason but it's not bad I s'pose. I'm loving the cam just wish it was more sensitive in Ha Ian
  8. nice one rog my 9.25 doesnt see much use at the moment but i wouldnt part with it ian
  9. took the words out of my mouth, the Bresser / Meade 10 x 50s from Lidl are great value for money. they are usually £15ish I think when the have them in. or you could go to one of the ebay merchants that buys them up and flogs them at a profit. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-BRESSER-10-X-50-BAK-4-BINOCULARS-CARRY-CASE-BNIB_W0QQitemZ180242541185QQihZ008QQcategoryZ10955QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Ian
  10. nope, take the lens off, attach the T-ring to the scope and then your camera will just connect to the scope as if it was a big lens. ian
  11. John, the first link Mark gave you http://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/detail.php?id=1900 has a camera bayonet on one side and a T-thread on the other, this is what connects the camera to the focuser. Ian
  12. mark set it to 5 your long exposure should overide it but better to be on the safe side. Ian
