  6. I am thinking of adding a Skymax 127 to my armoury. There have been several versions over the years. Starting with the blue tube. Then a totally black tube. Then a black diamond with Schott glass and it's logo on the tube, plus the white end collars. The current has the same black and white. But no Schott glass. Just wondered if there is a perceived difference in performance. Which would people prefer?

  9. Well Knighty, when ever there is an up coming NASA announcement people always speculate about the Clangers. So they must be real,ha. My wife has a talking/whistling Clanger hot water bottle. So who can deny their existence? Lol

  13. Stu has probably hit the nail on the head with this one. That being the condition of the skies and seeing condition. Years ago the street scene was quite dark, not much lighting. Today everywhere is lit up. Go to central London and you would'nt know if it was night or day with all the illumination. Buildings lit up.Exhaust particulants in the sky being illuminated This goes for most of our towns aswell. So it's no wonder I feel that it is differcult to get the sharp contrasty views from a telescope that seemed more frequent in past times. Ah well.
  14. I am grateful for all of the input. I have considered a Celestron C6. But not sure how they perform on planets.
