  2. The Moon in 3 lights and close ups 29-11-17

    Some of the best moon pics I have seen in a long time. typically how many photos were in the stack? Tony
  3. Optical Wonder Baader Fluid

    I use Calotherm lens cleaning spray on my glasses and they have all sorts of coatings on them. They are still in perfect condition. I also used it on the objective of an ED80 scope with similar results. I normally use Baader Wonderfluid on my Astro gear but it did leave a film on the ED80 objective that the Calotherm subsequently removed. Tony

    What shutter speed did you use?

  8. Try going to mpb.com and look for a good used lens if you want something that you may not use a lot.
  9. Best sky app

    +1 for Stellarium on the PC. I use Luminos on an iPad and it is very useful and informative. Tony
  10. Astroboot sell short ones at a nice cheap price. I bought one from them and it works for me.
  11. Helios Apollo 10.5 x 70 binoculars?

    I have both the 10.5x70 and the 15x70 Apollo binoculars. I am a few years older than you, but what the eyes can handle is very much down to the individual. I can hand hold the 10.5x70s for a period of time and they feel very solid in the hands. I would not attempt to hand hold the 15x70s. The exit pupil on the 10.5x70s is still very bright as even at worst it is the equivalent to 10x50 according to some calculations for exit pupil and old eyes. I had a pair of old Russian 7x50s and the Apollos are much brighter but that could be down to modern coatings etc. Tony
  12. Slow motion control knob.

    Astro boot have them on their website. i bought one and it does the job. tony
  13. Effect of powermate (2.5x) on focal plane

    Whenever I use my 2.5x Powermate to take photos of the moon with a DSLR, I have to add a 50mm + 35mm extension tube to my draw tube. Anything less, and it will not come to focus. This is true no matter which refractor I use. Tony
  14. Best beginners dslr

    Try MPB.com. I have bought and sold equipment with them and they are very good.
