  1. I went out with my 10x50's for a short time this evening and took in M31 as a starting point, I am lucky enough to have dark skies here, but its already been said, the moon is bright tonight and the view was really quite poor It does get better with less moonlight. I have no problem viewing M31 with 10x50's and on moonless nights its an easy naked eye object.

  2. Hello all,

    I am trying to set up my ocular views in Stellarium for my Meade ETX70. I have 3 standard Meade MA eyepieces 25mm, 12mm and 4mm

    Stellarium has accepted those eyepieces and calculated the magnification for each one correctly. However, it also needs the aFOV for each eyepiece.

    Could someone please be kind enough to point me in the right direction to find this information or explain how to calculate it.

    Many thanks

  3. have you looked at teleskopservice for the gso dobs?i looked at one and was close to buying but heard better reviews about the lightbridge and the skywatcher

    Thanks for that, Yes, the GSO is on my list for consideration, Im still undecided at the moment. But I can certainly get the GSO to here cheaper than the others.

  4. Many thanks for this :smiley:

    After a bit of a delay in the post, I finally have a nice pair of 10x50's so will trying to track down some of your suggestions, in fact I'll have to catch up on Octobers as well.

    But at the moment I am paying the price of my recent purchase......cloud, cloud..........and more cloud.

    I wonder if new binocular owners have to wait as long as new telescope owners for the cloud to clear. Surely not :grin:
