    I asked the same sort of question beginning of 2014 963 comments later. New scope brings the bad weather [emoji17] http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/207446-when-is-this-weather-going-to-end/page-1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hi and thank you all you all have helped me in choosing the right scope I think I will go for the revelation it's just down to do I go for the 8" or 10" the 10" is in bbc's sky at night review and they seem to like it. http://m.skyatnightmagazine.com/review/telescopes/revelation-10-inch-m-crf-premium-dobsonian Decisions decisions I'll order either one within the week but thank you all.

  4. Wow that Revelation 8" F/6 Is practically the same specs as the zhumell even with the cooling fan same size eyepieces as you said it's only the finder-scope that's straight though that's definitely one to google and consider. Do you know anybody that's had any experience with the revelation optics etc? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Hi all I've got astrophotography kit. but I'm looking for a good 8" dobsonian telescope so I can set up quickly. I want one with good optics and maybe some decent accessories I'd love to get the zhumell z8 deluxe dob telescope and even tho they've stopped making them or discontinued them I've found a place that's got one for £314 this place http://prubuy.uk/catalog/product/view/id/29666/ But I've never heard of them but have googled them and they say they seem safe and also have loads of reviews on they're Facebook page. The other I was looking at is the Orion skyquest xt8 plus. That's around
  6. Reading reviews on it....it's suppose to be very good especially used with this http://www.firstlightoptics.com/reducersflatteners/skywatcher-85x-reducer-flattener-for-ed80.html Flattener reducer which I'll also purchase and ive googled images with it and there are some stunning images Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks guys that's really helped me a lot I was going nuts trying to decide but hearing from people that use these scopes I think it's a clear winner for the ed80 thank you Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hey guys and girls Im looking at these two scopes but which is best for astrophotography they will be mounted on my skywatcher neq6 pro mount. But which should I choose as they're around same price with the flattener? skywatcher evostar 80ed with flattener http://www.firstlightoptics.com/pro-series/skywatcher-evostar-80ed-ds-pro-outfit.html Or skywatcher evostar 100ed flattener included http://www.firstlightoptics.com/pro-series/skywatcher-evostar-100ed-ds-pro-outfit.html Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
