  1. Thank you for your replies. I have to admit I have been thinking of getting myself a box to stand on, or some platform shoes. Was Freddy Mercury an astronomer? With his name and his boots... :-)
  2. Yes, I have: X2 Deluxe Barlow lense 1.25” (with Camera Adaptor) And 90° Star Diagonal (1.25”) Both came with the scope and with the supplied lenses being a bit ropey I'm wondering if I could do better replacing these too.. My mount is a syn scan AZ Goto although I also have an AZ 4 manual mount for those grab and go nights.
  3. Hi I have had my Skywatcher 127 for almost a year. I immediatly bought myself a couple of new lenses to replace the ones that came with it. I now have a 9mm Celestron x-cell lx, a 15mm npl vixon, and a 40mm npl vixon. These three seem to cover the range of what I like to look at within the confines of my equipment and light polluted sky. I was wondering what (if any) my next purchase should be? Would it be worth upgrading the Barlow and Star Diagonal that was supplied with my scope? I would at some point in the future like to attach a webcam to my scope and have a go at capturing Jupiter, Saturn and the moon. Any advice you seasoned astronomers can offer would be greatly appreciated. Jo
