  1. Just recently had led streetlights installed well shielded and directed...i can now see stars...so yep leds gets my vote.
  2. Unless its a flextube which require regular collimation...but even then its just a tweak.as for bobs knobs makes collimation a doddle
  3. Yes keith will watch it on catch up...but hardly ever missed a episode before they changed the schedule... dont no were i am with it now.
  4. Ha Ha what a muppet i am... this thread was started yesterday must start concentrating ...oh well another episode missed.
  5. Thanks for the info....hardly missed a episode when it was the first sunday in every month... dont no why they changed it.

    If we do get cloud i would rather have it now,what with the light nights.but lets hope we get a better autumn and winter, so we can get stuck in to some observing
  8. If for purely visual why not go for a 10",goldilocks of scope(not too big not too small easy to store and will give superb views) if finances allow Just be mindfull that a 10" dob is quite a weight but can be separated into two sections making it easier to move However if you want to do ap at a later date then the 8" is the one to go for.....good look with your choice
  9. The seben zoom has had some decent reviews on here and if you decide on a barlow get a good quality
  10. Maggie...Maggie...Maggie....Go...Go....Go......i think she is great for s@n very enthusiastic... or would you have some boring old fella hosting the programe at least she breathes life into s@n
  11. If you dont get excited at seeing saturn you"re in the wrong hobby....congrats
  12. Great choice and a cracking scope which will give you lots of fun and show you loads and some very good advise given there.with mine i had a few niggles...when extending the tube only one of the ball bearings would lock in place and if let go it would have fallen back down but yours seems ok.also when viewing close to the horizon with a weighty eyepiece it can become top heavy even when fully locked up.. so some counter weights come in handy.but for all the extras i have bought the one i would"t be without is a telrad which makes finding objects so much easier. enjoy
  13. I agree..but the 25mm is not too bad still use it now and then
