  1. Thanks Goibi! At £400 it seems a bargain for a scope of 6 inches!
  2. Great image Daniel! What mount did you use with the telescope, as my EQ3-2 is quite a lightweight mount? Thanks
  3. Hi all, Does anyone have any experience or know anything much about the Altair Astro GSO 6" F9 Ritchey Chretien? I am looking for a scope to do Planetary imaging and Lunar imaging with. Is this a good telescope to do that, or are the better alternatives for under £500? I currently use an EQ3-2 Mount, but the Altair Astro GSO 6" F9 Ritchey Chretien appears to be quite light at 5.5 kg! Here is a link to the telescope: http://astronomia.co.uk/index.php/telescopes/altair-astro-telescopes/ritchey-chretien/altair-astro-gso-6-f9-ritchey-chretien-astrograph.html Thanks Tom Chitson
  4. Thanks Ronin! I'm definitely going to get a webcam, and a better Barlow! The stock barlows are so useless! This is my 3rd scope already! I've previously had a 5" Newtonian, a 4" Maksutov, and now I'm onto the 3" Refractor, which definitely produces the best image quality, despite less aperture!
  5. Hello everyone! This is my first post on this site, so hopefully I'm doing things right! Im 16 years old and currently own a Sky Watcher Evostar 80ED on an EQ3-2 Mount, with an RA motor drive. I used a Nikon D3000 for imaging. This scope works great for widefield shots of the Moon and deep sky objects, but I am interested in planetary and Lunar work. Is there any scope anyone can recommend for under £500 that would fit on an EQ3-2 mount, that is good for lunar and planetary work? Also I am looking to get a webcam/high frame rate camera for around £100! Is there any good models people can recom
  6. Just e-mailed my local council about the street lights down my road. I attached a picture of the light pollution aswell to show the council how bad it is.
  7. I got a Sky Watcher Evostar 80ED yesterday and it is great for only £500! Its light enough to be mounted on only an EQ3-2 mount which is only £180, so it seems it would suit what you're looking for! ________ Sky Watcher Evostar 80ED DS Pro APO Eq3-2 Mount Celestron Upclose 10x50 Nikon D3000 DSLR
