  6. I'd be interested in this scope if you would meet up at Carlisle? I'm in Preston
  7. very nice, you have picked up some nice star colour and reduced the back ground noise.
  8. Thats because you have imaged everything else...
  9. Hi John That's a fine setup you have, I'm going to have to get/make something similar, my dob mount is too small, I brought the patio table in last week for winter, now its to low down In a nutshell, lovely scope let down by a few shortcuts, worst part is that it easily flexes under weight, hence I no longer use it for imaging.
  10. Hi , my scope is the UK Orion Optics VX6 with 10pv mirror upgrade http://www.orionoptics.co.uk/VX/vx6-6l.html It’s got a nice 2” focused The zoom might be a good choice I’ll give on a go ?
