  1. Hi

    Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.

    What a bummer. Hope you get lucky and find a diagonal

  4. Great to have you back and running Mel.
  5. Hello from NYC

    Another very nice set Charl. Raining here at the moment but it is supposed to clear.
  7. M92 the tricky one...

    Lovely report and great sketch Richard.
  8. Hi :)

    Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL. A useful lesson learned. Normally you are much safer dealing with reputable dealers such as FLO. Hope you receive the correct order soon.
  9. Cleaning?

    IPAs John has pointed out, we really need to know which type of scope you have before we can give any advice.
  10. Hello from Portugal [Cédric Pereira]

    Hello Cedric and a warm welcome to the SGL. I am visiting your beautiful country in September.
  11. Cometographia

    Very nice find John. Some amazing illustrations there.
  12. Hello from Croatia!

    Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.
  13. Hi All

    Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL.
  14. I have both of these scopes and I find that I use the Dob more often than the Mak for much the same reasons as John has given in his reply. I use the Dob on an equatorial platform and the Mak is on a super track mount because I enjoy sketching targets. Having said all that my ED 120 frac is now my most used scope.
