  1. I was going to say if it has the same tube diameter as the ZS66, it would be smaller and lighter than the Megrez 72, but looking at specs on their website, they both weigh the same and the Megrez 72 collapses to a smaller length.
  2. Floaters are one thing, I have a piece of loose jelly in my right eye that has to be check once a year. The hospital won't do anything about it unless it causes a cataract. If I move my eyeballs left to right a few times quickly, It looks like someone squished a spider on my eyeball and it still kicking it legs about . It destroy the view in an eyepiece, though with a binoview it looks like frogspawn.
  3. If you want to go down the Vixen Portamount route then I would go for the Portamount II than the mini version.
  4. Backlog????????????????? Yesterday, I ordered two eyepieces and an adapter................today they arrived. What's going on?
  5. Thanks for the coments so far, something for me to think about.
  6. As it says in the title. At the moment I am using a Baader Hyperion 13mm and that is the best I have got for the PST. I would like a zoom eyepiece that is at least equal in performance. The contenders are:- Baader Hyperion MkIII Meade Zoom Lunt zoom Pentax XF 19.5-6.5mm Any others, I'll be happy to hear about.
  7. Can't help you with the labels, but the image is great, nice catch.
  8. Another tip is to get the Vixen Tripod accessory tray http://www.vixenoptics.co.uk/Pages/mount_tripod_accessories.htm . It clamps on easily and helps reduce vibrations, especially if you have heavy eyepieces that you can keep in there. I would also reconmend Vibration Supression Pads First Light Optics - Celestron Vibration Suppression Pads. They certainly help at higher powers.
  9. William Optics 7x50, the view is very clear and sharp with these.
  10. I always thought it was Astreya Optics who did the optics on the WO158, the same as the FLT98. I could be wrong about the 158 though.
  11. Looking good, I was out with my PST this afternoon and that large prominence did look good.
  12. Thats a good looking photo.
  13. The Hyperion zoom seems a useful bit of kit for the PST.
  14. Does the army still train there, there'll be plenty of flares lighting up the night sky if ther're doing there night exercises.
