  1. Turn Left at Orion is ideal for you. It really is as good as the reviews.
  2. The planetarium at Intech near Winchester does a fantastic show on the scale of the universe, highly recommended.
  3. I have a kindle but avoid any books where the diagrams are important. As good as the kindle is for reading books, they haven't got the diagrams right yet. Have a look at the reviews for TL@O on Amazon from kindle users.
  4. Thank you both, confirmed what I thought. Matt
  5. Hi all, long time reader, first time poster. I have a skywatcher explorer 130 on an eq2 mount but find stability a major problem. It takes roughly 30 seconds for vibrations to die down after moving or focusing. The latter is real pain; it can take a while to reach good focus with the repeated adjusting, waiting, adjusting... I want to upgrade the mount. I only use for visual so I don't need (nor can afford!) something too expensive, but I do prefer eq mounts; I tend to stick to one object for quite a while each session. Would an eq3-2 be a sufficient upgrade or should I be looking for an eq5? Thanks, Matt
