  1. My OOUK is F6.3 and the APM 30mm UFF is mind blowing in it. It really does feel like I've got my head in a glass bubble looking into the cosmos. They're not cheap but omg they're worth every penny. p.s. I caught the Veil in it last winter amazing
  2. Would this be suitable.....? http://apm-telescopes-englisch.shopgate.com/item/333631373637 I have one and it is simply magnificent.

    Good afternoon

    How do Sam, welcome
  4. Your 'Norn Iron' header made me chuckle. I have friends from your neck of the woods. Welcome to the forum
  5. In all probability the 92 show was the one I witnessed. I was based at Lossiemouth, 8 lads off out for a few libations, stopped us dead in our tracks. Didn't get to the pub for at least another hour. It was incredible, the sky was on fire.
  6. You won't go far wrong with BST Starguiders https://www.firstlightoptics.com/bst-starguider-eyepieces.html For the money, they're great.
  7. I have the VX10L also and I can assure you that your focus troubles are now over. The in built extender is definitely required to bring any eyepiece to focus. Marvellous telescopes, I love mine.
  8. Yep, another vote for APM UFF 30mm. In my OOUK F6.3 10" dob the views are incredible. It makes you feel like you are actually in space. Brilliant eyepiece.
  9. Great first scope. Welcome
  10. That's great news, thanks. Is that a Berlebach tripod ?
  11. Marvellous. I shall be searching the second hand market in the near future. Thanks for your assistance all. Al
  12. I was hoping someone was going to suggest the AZ4 as it's a little cheaper than the AZ5. Would I need a pier extension at all ? Also, will the ED80 fit straight onto the AZ4 or will I need an adapter etc. Last one, aluminium or steel leg tripod ? I really appreciate everyone's help, thank you. Al
  13. Right guys, I think, possibly, this might be the one. Sky-Watcher Evostar 72ED or the 80. With budget in mind what tripod and AZ manual mount (from a weight pov) would be required. I'm factoring in the obligatory diagonal, not sure what di-electric means though . Are there any other must haves that I'd need ? Really appreciate all your help/input. Cheers Al
  14. Still deliberating guys, I'm not ignoring your replies.
