  1. To me they look fantastic after seeing my photos of the andromeda galaxy that i tried a few weeks ago.... its a steep and expensive learning curve and im still at the bottom of both.
  2. I paid 274 for mine , so without looking into the details I'd say it was , but as always with eBay be very carefully and fully read what's for sale , make sure it includes all the bits and bobs that should be there...
  3. maybe the 5mm or 7mm for planetary and if you wanted all of orion then maybe use your finder scope? im still a novice myself and am sure others will have better advice..
  4. http://www.firstlightoptics.com/celestron-eyepieces/celestron-x-cel-lx-eyepiece.html these come highly reccomended , hope it helps.
  5. No apologies needed... i understood your post, but the only problem is ive not had a moonless clear sky yet since ive had the scope so im actually looking forward to an oppertunity to see it in all 25mm of its dark sky glory..
  6. im hoping to get better shots when there no moon to be honest, im still saving for a better tripod so can only get 3 sec exposures at the mo, its a learning curve and different that what i normally capture but im loving it
  7. http://www.flickr.com/photos/117550446@N08/12507953774/ Taken tonight, i know there not much good, but taken on a static tripod with 300mm lens set to 3.5 sec exposure....

  9. Thankyou for the responses, They made some very good reading and ive enjoyed every minute of this hobby so far, still amazes me that i was lookin at an image created over 2 million years ago... ~Thanks Guys...
  10. Thankyou for the replies, i actually feel a bit chuffed to of seen it, i tried on my old scope a few times but never ever saw it, but i got a funny feeling it was something to do with pointing the scope in completely the wrong direction ... lol Guess i got Stellarium to thank for tonight`s success ..
  11. Hi , after spending a couple of hours outside with some clear sky and stellarium I found Jupiter looking good through the new scope , had a browse round the moon then had a go for Andromeda , I understand a moonlight sky isn't the best conditions but several times I came across a blurred lump of silver/grey light in the rough location of Andromeda , was this indeed the galaxy or isn't it visible in a moonlight sky ?? Thankyou for any answers received
  12. Having done a small amount of research over the issue, as im also looking for new/additional EP`s ive decided the Celestron x-cel is the best option available to my budget.
  13. Am a newbie myself but i reckon the Skyliner 8" has the most light gathering abilities , so the more power so to speak.. hope that helps, but im sure some ppl on here will have better advice .
  14. I ended up buying the 300mm f-4 in the end , was twice my budget but it been worth every penny....
  15. Hi Darren , I've had experience with the 120 -400 and my advice would be to stay clear, OK, I wasn't trying for moon shots or anything but was using one for plane photography but the Image quality was terrible . could be a different story with moon shots though ??
