  1. I have never heard of Seben; but reading the first line about one of their scopes (114mm Reflector) it says this: "The combination of an enormous 114mm aperture and a remarkable focal length of 1000mm"...this tells me that they are rubbish. 114mm, enormous? That's a starter scope with the SMALLEST size mirror. I would go with Sky Watcher IMHO.

    Maybe they work well..who knows?....anyone?...anyone?....


  2. When it comes to photo editing, I am a novice (usually take bike racing photos & no editing) but will have a play around with it to see what improvements can be made - thank you

    I'm a photographer. I do a LOT of editing :Envy:

    I'll have a go if you like...


  3. So...with my limited budget which would be better. Both are the same resolution (1280 x 720)...So i,m guessing there is little in it. Both have been modded for astro use, from the looks of some of the posts on here. Or am I better off sticking with my Dslr?

    Eager to get down to the shops whilst there is a meager discount to be had.

    Any thoughts would be great!

  4. Hi Ras,

    Not sure if we're allowed to talk shop on here, only astronomy, so forgive me SGL if i cant.

    Yes, i do a little of everything chilli related. Have only done one season as full time, but have been growing chillies for years.

    Basically, started up a small farm, well not really a farm, but land i have polytunnel/s on. Only small atm. 1/4 acre max.

    I do alsorts. Fresh chillies, smoked dried chillies, plants of all sizes, sauces, chutneys, Oils (sometimes) and even have a local sausage maker i work with but these are only special order and not really something i want to sell. My main chilli is scotch bonnet, but i grow lots of others. Will be making my own chipotle this season as well as trying a paprika blend.

    Its all work in progress, and having been diagnosed with acute tendonitis in both wrist and being laid off ill for several weeks, its been a tough start to the year. Though the first batch of new plants germinated yesterday. Bonnets, bhuts, scorpions, hot lemon, jalapeno, tabasco, cayenne, birds eye and a few others.

    Do you grow for just for personal use?

    The scotch bonnet rules! I mainly make hot pepper sauce, the hotter the better. And yes, its just for personal usage. All grown at my humble allotment, which doubles as the site for my astronomy!
