    Other than visual astronomy (haven't got the patience or budget for imaging); I like a game of golf, a good cup of coffee / glass of wine, cooking the Sunday lunch, a rare night at the opera and a couple of pints in the local. I should probably include my three young children and a generally supportive wife!

  1. Definitely OIII first. It is rare that I use my UHC. Paul
  2. Looks like a lovely scope. Glad that it is living up to expectations. It looks like a surprisingly compact design for a big mirror. Paul
  3. Come on then. What were the highlights? It is a rare thing to actually setup and use a scope at a star party! Paul
  4. Glad that the scope is performing well. Thanks for posting the pictures too. Mag 14 to 15 galaxies! That galaxy count is really going to rocket. Paul
  5. Good choice. 10” gives enough grunt for DSO and is reasonably portable. I’ve got the flex tube collapsible version. That said. They are big scopes so storage can be an issue. Paul
  6. Wonderful eyepieces! I managed without a CC at f4.7. Definitely need one at f4. Although I sold my E21 to pay for the f4 scope. Enjoy Paul
  7. Almost 3D!! Splendid image. Paul
  8. !!!! You were busy. Glad that you had a good night. Paul
  9. Sounds like an interesting couple of hours. Shame that the 20pv Dob wasn’t better placed. Wonder if it could have lived with the fracs?? Paul
  10. Splendid! That one has got to stick.
  11. The 17.3mm Delos was my most used eyepiece in my f4.7 Dob. I found that 30mm showed slightly washed out due the too bigger exit pupil. But if the 30mm works for you. Stick with it. Paul PS. I’ve never tried a Morpheus.
  12. Show off. If only more of us had the courage to make the jump. Paul
  13. Looks like a complete set to me! As good as money in the bank. If it all goes wrong you can always sell up and slum it with a set of Delos.... Don’t blame you for baulking at the 21E. A very fine eyepiece, but the there are limits. Paul
  14. I find that something light weight and white does the trick (a tea towel). Do you really need ‘black out’ for solar observing? Paul
