      Get it and love it!!! It's on my wishlist! 

  2. A friend really galvanised my interest in astronomy in the late 90's thanks in no small part to his 4" Vixen on a SP mount. One like it is still at the top of my wish list. I suppose the A105M is the current equivalent but whether it is just the change in colour scheme (gone is the grey/green hammered finish), the appearance of quality in the acros seems to have fallen. Don't know if that's true, after all it's just my visual perception. Sent from my LG-D802 using Tapatalk
  3. I'm also in Cornwall and this is exactly my plan. I love my 200p dob but a frac would be lovely when the weather is marginal. I'm only 8 miles from Land's End and right on the coast and when the weather plays ball a nice frac would really shine as we fall within the dark sky area and they can be breathtaking. But in the meantime I'm enjoying the dob and my new pair of 10x50 bins.Sent from my LG-D802 using Tapatalk
  4. That's the idea! And to keep the dust generated by 3 kids and other assorted furry creatures off of my nice shiny mirror. One of my best investments for the princely sum of £1 for 2, it works a treat.Sent from my LG-D802 using Tapatalk

  6. Apparently the Frac crew reckon its getting a bit quiet here so here's my 200p. Sent from my LG-D802 using Tapatalk
  7. Nah! Just put the scope on a taller stool [emoji3]
  8. I think they're great. Definately the best way to geta youngster started with a cheap real telescope. Much better than anything else in this sort of price range. Mine's a Skyliner 200p and we all know what they look like so I haven't bothered to post a photo, besides the little heritage is much prettier and more interesting to look at. Also it's one of an elite group of dobs that are educational to look at as well as look through.

  10. I don't know how much truth there is in it, but an experienced astronomer friend, who also happened to be a telescope designer, once told me that a refractor was roughly equivalent to a reflector 2" greater in diameter, so in this case 6". So you could probably push the magnification to the same levels as on the reflector.
  11. That's a total of 8 eps which are of a quality I am likely never going to need to better.
  12. I'd complete my set of My 68° and a part set of shower focal length Es 82° from 14mm down. A Made/Es/Bresser 2" 2x Telextender a Telrad and riser a RACI finder and a 1-10 conversion for the focuser and still have change to take the family out for KFC.
  13. Looking good. The more I see this little mount the more I become convinced I NEED one
  14. Looking forward to the review. I really fancy one of these. Sent from my LG-D802 using Tapatalk
