  1. Managed to view last night, only lasted 15 mins, before the clouds rolled in, but brilliantly good seeing for those view minutes really bright and the reddest I seen in years
  2. Stepping over the dog, who decided at that moment to stand up, between my legs, and me reaching for support of the dual rig, and it toppled over with me, and taking the full brunt of the 80mm as I fell onto it, catching me in the higher rib cage, very luckily no damage to scope, but did end up with two cracked ribs
  3. And something simple like this will make the dob so much a easier to handle
  4. Decent Barlow, you can cut down on the number of lenses then. 4 would be more than enough, oh, and go for the 8"
  5. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sky-Watcher-100ED-PRO-SERIES/303652658201?hash=item46b31bdc19:g:VEoAAOSwR6NfNQ7y
  6. Yes, its the Baader Hyperion Barlow, cheers for the info. I have a 5mm X-cell, so will try that out first at some point, but do like the Hyperions
  7. Quick question, I have the 2.25 barlow, how well will they work with a Hyperion 24 and 17mm lens Cheers I'm considering getting either a 10 or 5mm, or would that be too much mag
  8. Ball-head camera tripod wanted, trying here first as not keen on fleabay crap or inflated prices Will need to be posted via royal mail or parcel force, couriers here are a nightmare could pick up if local to TA11 Cheers Edit, a spare quick change plate would be a bonus, needing to use two cameras
  9. is the Opticstar AR90S still for sale ?
