  1. I've used First Light Optics a few times, but after this I won't be using them again. I ordered a Baader Skysurfer V on the 29th Nov, had a email from James the next day stating that there wasn't any black ones in stock, only silver & asked if that would be ok, to which I replied yes. So I checked the site to see if it had be sent & even sent a email to see if it had, still in progress & no replied. I phoned today, to be welcomed by a answering machine saying contact them by email, err...I did. So I have £76 missing from my bank account & no item, good deal that. Not Impressed Wayne
  2. Thanks for the advice, I think I'll go for Baader Hyperion 13mm
  3. I'm in the process of upgrading my eyepieces for my Startravel 120 & want one for deep sky at a budget of £100. Wayne
  4. Me & my daughter really enjoyed the star party, there was some impressive kit on show, just like to thank the organizers for event & all the friendly stargazers, looking forward to next year. Wayne
  5. Booked Thurs, Fri & Sat night, my first star party, can't wait
  6. At the moment I'm just taking photos with a SLR film camera. I've seen DMK 21AU04.AS Mono on FLO, does anyone have one of these & are they any good? Or should I go out and get a digital camera, if so can someone recommend me one under the £500 mark?
  7. I got the scope out this morning to look at Saturn, last time I looked at it the rings were head on, this time I could see them, wow! Also took a look at Venus.
  8. After watching the 1st & 2nd episode I enjoyed it, I could stomach Dara but Ross got on my nerves abit. Liked the photography tips & pics what some people sent in + the girl
  9. I like hiking, camping & cycle touring
  10. I'm planning on going to the Galloway in the next month or so before I go to my first SGL star party, with coming from Stoke on Trent I'm lucky to see a star, can't wait. Have any of you ventured up there?
  11. I'm thinking of buying a Skywatcher Skymax 102 tube only, but want to know which tripod is best? i've seen the William optics & horizon from FLO, not sure which one to choose? I like the height of the horizon because i'm going use my binos as well, does anyone know the height of the William optics tripod?
  12. I'm ready purchase a Skywatcher Maksutov 127 scope from FLO but i don't want the mount what comes with it because some are quite heavy & bulky. I want to attach it to a normal camera tripod for portability, what bracket will i need or does it come with one?
