  1. I got the opportunity to buy a GSO 10" deluxe, hardly used, for a bargain price. I´m aware the step from 8" to 10" is very subtle, but it was interesting to do a side by side comparison before I give away (more correctly trade it with some non astronomical stuff) Skipping the physical differences (there are a few), The 10" was very subtle, but still noticable better than the 8" on most galaxies. Especially on : NGC3628 (leo triplet), the whale and crowbar galaxy, and if I remember correctly the silver streak galaxy. As expected: The 10" was far superior on globular clusters (M3, M5) Rune
  2. Enjoyable read. Good luck with the rest of the Messiers. This list is of course impossible to complete from my location 59 degrees north. I`m spending the current moon- (and cloud) less nights nights doing a side by side comparison between my 8" and 'new' 10" dob. Your dobsonian looks very nice indeed, frosty or not. Rune
  3. May I suggest you leave the tube ~1cm from fully extended, when using the barlow. You might achieve focus then. Try it using 25mm barlowed. Rune
