    Time to get the dob out

    Clear here too but only till 10 might chance it though
  2. Excellent result,nice one
  3. To keep things simple the sw 150 skyliner on the dob mount might be the way to go,won’t take up much room,very portable and comes with a 2inch focuser,a tad over £200 or even cheaper secondhand

    As above,9 out 10 time it seems to be the power supply oh and welcome to SGL
  5. You could get a secondhand 200p reflector on a dobsonian mount for that which would give you a lifetimes worth of use,they come highly recommended on here.Oh and welcome to sgl
  6. Are pony tails back in vogue?Peace man.

    Is it just me but I don,t remember ever seeing Mars as bright as it is at the moment.The magnitude is -1.8 and I heard it may go out to -2.2 that,s Venus territory.Maybe somthing to do with the dust storm possibly reflecting more sunlight back?

    A few craters from this week.

    Excellent some incredible detail there.
  9. It’s what’s called a “bird jones” design which incorporates a lens in the wonky focuser making collimating nigh on impossible,an sw130 on a eq3-2 secondhand would be the way to go.

    Hi there and welcome to SGL.Clouded out at the moment which is the norm here atm.

    Eq6 bubble level

    As what’s just been said.
  14. I think there’s over 3000 of which 2/3 are defunct but still buzzing around.Can be a right pain especially for the imagers.
  15. I would of thought it would be dob users that tend to use the 100* eps therefore less nudging (I hate nudging)I use 70* myself which to me seem ample,however some numty did let me look through a 21 ethos and grrrr#&@mmm!.
