  1. Haha. This night sound ridiculous but I don't know how other people who wear glasses do it! I take my glasses off and cover my left eye with my hand and view down my right eye.this means I don't have my hands free for tracking!
  2. That's great! I just wanted to make sure.i wear glasses and have real problems looking down the eye piece!! ( I know that's a real big problem hah!) Im thinking of getting an eye patch!!
  3. Hi everyone thank you all for your kind replies! Is a bst a type of eye piece? Not a brand? I was wondering what a possl one is? Sory for being completely stupid!
  4. Hi I saw Saturn for the second time last night.the first time made me cry even though it was not great quality as the wind had just picked up. Last night night there was no wind and it was about 10 pm. And it took a while to find even though I had it in the finder scope no problem. i find it really hard to track. it was very wobbly and moved so quick.any advice to stop it being wobbly.also it was pretty tiny so I would like to increase the magnification. I have a explorer 150pl and used the combinations of thd lens and eye pieces supplied: 25 eye relief and 2x Barlow and a 10mm. Im ready to get better quality eye pieces but not sure! Thanks Luna
  5. Hi Me too from my back garden in Coventry. Though it was very wobbly and moved so quick.any advice to stop it being wobbly.also it was pretty tiny still amazing though! I have a explorer 150pl and used the combinations of thd lens and eye pieces supplied: 25 eye relief and 2x Barlow and a 10mm. Im ready to get better quality eye pieces but not sure! Thanks Luna

  7. Hi Bod-00 I have a 150PL. Just to warn you it is a long scope! I took it out on location (burton dasset in warwickshire- if anyone is familiar- great views but to much traffic and headlights!) for the first time over the weekend. I got mine in february and have been using it in my back garden- i live on a main road with horrible lights but can see Jupiter no problem with it. I been on the hunt for saturn, found it on saturday but then the wind picked up so wasnt much good! In terms of size the scope only just fits on the back seat of my Fiat 500. It wont fit in the boot. The mount would have to be broken up to fit in the boot. But my friend held it in the front sinceit was the first time we took it out and didnt want to start re building on our first attempt. Im thinking of trying to get a carry bag for it i wrapped it up in a blanket as i didnt want to scratch my car and to stop it rolling about. Im thinking of putting it in a sleeping bag unless any one knows of a cheap carry case? Sorry for hijacking this post, but any recommendations on good eye pieces. Ive been using the ones which came with it but know i should upgrade ! Hope that helps! Luna!
  8. Hey!! No sorry not scared me! I just been busy.ill give that ago!! Although i am trying to align my findeescope but my eye piece shows the image upside down!!! Not sure why! The finder scope shows the image upside down that is correct isn't it!!
  9. That's great! I have a chimnea cover I'll use that!!
  10. I was thinking what if im on a hill and not near my car.the bin bag thing sounds useful! Thanks
  11. This is a silly question I know.but what do you do to protect your scope if you get caught out observing in the rain shower. Im guessing it can resist a bit of rain like bikes do and you dry it down but do I need to buy a cover? Joanne
  12. done and had a few practises going through to the three differnt postions!
  13. now got to get it out of the meridian flip back to home north
  14. Ive done the meridian flip. NA di took photos of each one. North- south- meridian flip south and they all look differnt -- that must be a good thing! haha
