  11. hi guys.i have a 8" classic lx200 and various eyepieces.can anyone explain why i dont seem to be able to see many stars.if i point my binoculars into the sky,i see loads of stars in milkyway,yet when i do this with scope i dont!would a dobsonian be better for this?is my scope intended more for planets and moon.im having real trouble seeing anything like galaxies.is my scope not powerful enough for anything but planets?what would be a good scope for seeing galaxies etc with naked eye or is it only possable through imaging. also any idea which would be best for 8" sct classic meade lx200? Siebert Optics Black Night Binoviewer or wo?which is best quality etc.also do they all have 125 fitting or is there 2",which would be best if so?any pointers on good prices anywhere,best ive seen is wo at £169 free po.would i need extension to keep focal aperature?many thanks,advise most apreciated.

  13. someone is selling solar filters made themselves with od 5.0 baader Astro Solar Safety Film .she says it is safe to put this filter over eyepiece only and then look at the sun directly .this doesnt sound safe to me,im sure you would have to have a filter on telescope end also,can anyone advise,thanks
