  1. Has anyone had a go with a 12 inch Revelation dob?
  2. They do, should still mange 400 quid I would have thought
  3. Portability is a bit of an issue it has to be said. I live in a delightful if small cottage with an equally small shed. I have done just about everything I can do with refractors and small Newtonians, I need more photons!
  4. A couple of hundred quid I would think john, I was thinking I might get 700 quid for the scope and what is a very nice tripod, what do you think?
  5. The time has come to buy a large scope, 12 inch , perhaps 14. Gentlemen , your recommendations based on the second hand price of my current outfit please.
  6. An 8 inch is very doable on your mount
  7. Ohh yes, they really are rather good
  8. It depends if you can handle diffraction spikes, they still annoy me sadly. I'd buy the ED120
  9. Patdon? Is it just me ? I have no idea what this thread is about?
  10. The ED100 is a fantastic planetary scope. Like John and Shane say the 120 is the one to go for if you can afford one. If not the 100 will not disappoint, I have owned both.
  11. I have always been tempted by a Mak Newton. Personally I would prefer a Intes micro should I go down that route. Skywatchers certainly do the job and good value they certainly are but unfortunately they do have all the joy and appeal of a toaster
  12. Mine you my old Europa wasn't a bad scope but you can't compare these with the latest models
  13. John is right the old ones had a few issues. The new ones have no peer, the RR of Newtonians. No other mirror set or primary cell comes close. I would have no hesitation in recommending one or buying another, my little difficulty was not the fault of OO. The focuser is not a clone, its the same focuser as steeltrack re badged
  14. The scope is amazing the focuser was the same as a steeltrack, its Baader I don't trust, over rated poor quality stuff on the whole. I have had there stuff fallen apart before....beware the baader zoom
