  1. You probably wouldn't if you can easily point out polaris.
  2. It's a shame that few ruin it for the rest! 250 sounds a lot, could be lowered down!
  3. Well doing manned missions will definitely affect other spendings.
  4. this is a great forum with kind helpful members. I would like to know why wouldn't the new members have the ability to edit their posts. We all men and we all make mistakes, we all should have it When do you get this feature anyway?
  5. Will I'm sure the pressure problem will be overcome, once a safe habitat is provided on the surface on Mars for humen.
  6. This is no ugly at all! Functional and looks fantastic! May build one my self. Did you record the construction of it?
  7. If you don't mind me asking, what is the difference between a Telrad and a red dot finder? because they look the same to me.
  8. I like the hand made DOB base. Have you got a link to the topic or video by any chance?
  9. You can check my topic, as I was/still I'm in your position. I got good suggestion and help, may be handy. http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/190665-beginner-telescope/
  10. Why can't we enjoy life without lights at night? I mean apart from driving, do we need the lights?
  11. This one looks good. I have this one but I think I would've bought the one you mentioned if I didn't have one already. http://www.amazon.co...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  12. The 130M includes a motor and a red dot finder. the 130 have a finder scope. The 130 and 130M have 900mm focal length, while the 130P have 650mm focal length.
  13. I agree, but I don't think many will in this forum The amount of funding for manned missions is ridiculous. But I guess this decision is left for those who want to claim the victory and the success of "Man Landing on Mars" and those who spent all of their lives working on the subject will defiantly support such mission regardless of any other logical facts that will discourage the mission. In my opinion, a third party should come and make the decision on money spending that will take into consideration people affected by the recession and poverty around the globe, but again if we did not spend this money we would've not enjoyed the amazing discoveries.
  14. I received mine not too long ago, and can't wait to start using it. I like the feature that shows the position of bright planets. Does any one have any tips that will help using it? I mean I know the basics like finding the correct part of the map for the specific time and finding planets, but that's all really. Thanks for the comments everyone.
  15. Hello I'm wondering how popular they are and whether they have been replaced by softwares and apps. I know some say they are essential when using a telescope, but for those who have practising the hobby for a while, do you use/need them anymore? Thanks
  16. Yet someone in the reviews, think it's not great quality for the price !
  17. Can't wait till December-January where Jupiter will be closest in the year. this web site will help you show position of earth with other planets. http://www.theplanetstoday.com/ It is a live web site, you can fast-forward and check for future earth-planet line up. At the wnd of Agust, Neptune will be lined up with earth, but I guess it'll be really faint in our scopes
  18. Nasa's site shows that it's flying by Titian yesterday,NASA is emphasising too much on Titan, they almost worship the thing! I think it will just stay at Saturn and orbit it's moons, this was the goal of the mission anyway. Would be nice to use it somewhere else as well.
