  1. New Toy - 200P Got an upgrade

    I did the same as you when I upgraded to a moonlite, "I went for the red," I flocked my scope too, its worth the effort, and as you said the moonlite makes collimation easier, and more accurate. Clear Sky's.

    Astronomik are one of the best , I use both UHC and Oiii and find them superb additions to my kit, the link Dave has posted is also superb, the first time he posted it I downloaded it, printed it then laminated them, stops the dew from ruining them when I observe, I bought the UHC first then the Oiii followed.

  13. BST Starguider

    I have never experienced bad coma from my 12mm Starguider, as nightfisher has said, you may have been sold a dufff one, give them a ring they should exchange it.
  14. I was also admiring Mons la Hire, the shadow was huge, it reminded me of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, there is a photo of it from above with the shadow stretching out for quite a distance, the Moon was very impressive last night. We had our first frost, which is very promising, always good seeing with frost.
