  1. I don't know if you'd be interested in this sort of thing, but I found an app for the iPhone that is helping me recognize the constellations. It's not great and it isn't free, but I think there are free alternatives. I have noticed it makes it a little easier observing at night.... Here are some screen shots from my phone.... Just an idea. HTH. Jim
  2. Thanks for the translation! Just looking at that site, is it worth the £50 to go up to a 10" or am I making the novice mistake of believing bigger is better? Jim
  3. I am having a difficult time finding the Skywatcher Skyliner 200P in the U.S. Is there a U.S. distributor anyone is aware of? Would the recommendation of the 200p change for someone in the States? The only similiar ones I have found use dowel rods instead of a solid tube. http://www.telescopes.com/telescopes/dobsonian-telescopes/skywatcher12inchdobsoniantelescope1.cfm I am a bit leery of that. It doesn't seem as durable and seems like it would be more likely to be a dust-magnet, yeah? Thanks, Jim
