  4. I think its explained in the reviews why its this price

  6. last night (3rd of feb) I was very happy with what I saw I went out last night to try some astrophotography. I got all my equipment set up then to find my camera was dead. so I took the camera off and put I'm my 10mm, swung over to Jupiter and had a gaze (you cant not, once its gone you'll have to wait a while before it comes back up). I noticed everything was higher in the sky so I went to see if m42 was any different but it didn't. I remember watching eyesontheskysDOTcom and he was talking about how to find M36 and M38. I found 'the smiley face' in Auriga moved to the left then swept the sky with my 25mm EP. Eventually I found a star cluster but I couldn't tell which one it was. I took a guess that it was m38 and moved upward and found m36. I did a little joy dance (because I had been looking for a while and this was the my second attempt) and looked back again. I didn't know what to look for next and I was freezing so I packed up. I was very happy that I found some new objects. I have a question though, how often should you collimate a dobsonian? thanks,
  7. thanks for the advice, I'll try something a bit more suited for dslr photography
  8. Mine's in the shed with a sheet over it. But if I were you then I would get a shed alarm to keep it safe.
  9. thanks. Do you thing I should try something like a star cluster?
  10. its an slr with a 2x barlow and yes it is the scope in my sig
  11. how come Jupiter looks like Neptune when I try to take photos of it, is it not focused or have I done something wrong
  12. I have one but haven't had a chance to use it.
