  3. There’s really no one scope that can do everything. An 8’ Dobsonian is the best purchase you can make for looking at the night sky, Its super simple to use and you will learn so much more. Just pick out a constellation and tour around it. You should be able to pick one up for very little money in the US and if at a later date you have some extra cash for an equatorial mount. you can pop a set of rings on it and use it on the mount. Throw in a reasonably good pair of binoculars, a stable tripod and you have the best of everything for next to nothing. The double setup will also let you share the views with family/friends Have Fun Steve

I've reduced my scope collection to 3, so now its time to start on the cameras Bargain priced for quick sale, Point Grey Grasshopper ICX 285 and Point Grey Flea FL2G ICX 655 Firewire Cams, both mono, both capable of long exposures. ICX 285 needs no introduction used in the Atik 314+ the grasshopper case lends itself well to cooling mods and has a loop through for a second cam. ICX 655 is a 5mp 2448 x 2050 3.45µm pixels 2/3 Sensor 11mm Diagonal. Glass needs a clean (specs from air duster) as Used in the Atik 450 https://www.atik-cameras.com/product/atik-450 £200 the pair, Cables, Laptop / PC Cards available Set two is a pair of High speed E2V 570's SOLD Basler Ace ACA 1600-60gm POE, Gige Mono Camera, Flir FL3-U3-20E4CC Colour USB 3.0 New in box 1600 x 1200 4.5µm, 9mm Diagonal The mono's been my favourite camera, most used, preferred over the IMX174, both are superfast, Mono would benefit for a clean on solar, Colour is brand new £200 the pair post at cost Steve
