    Hi Sheeprug, Warm welcome to SGL, hope you enjoy the forums. Great scope you have there too.
  2. Hi Michael, Great report as always, Congrats on the comet spot.
  3. Hi Gareth, That is a cracking image, some easy tweaks. Congrats , look forward to seeing more of your work.
  4. You would not be disappointed with either!! My choice would be the ES having looked through both in a large dob.
  5. Hi Len Warm welcome to SGL, hope you enjoy the forums. Looks like you started like a lot of us with a present of a refractor in younger years. You are now building a great setup, congrats. Hwyl!

  7. Just think how far away Saturn is ... That is great work with your current setup.
  8. Watch out for the fake ebay buy it now....
  9. Hi Colin, Warm welcome to SGL, hope you enjoy the forums. That's a fine setup you have there.
  10. Hi Dave, I have used a dual thread adapter on my mak to take the thread to t2. Then a t2 screw on nosepiece. To be frank with the internal baffles on your scope I do not know if you would see any benefit. Can pm pics if you would like them.
  11. Hi Lewis, Warm welcome to SGL, hope you enjoy the forums.
  12. @roy, also biased to refactors here, 4 to 1 mak!, But the op's reqs really are mak/sct heaven.
  13. From your interests in observing it would be a mak \ sct. But I am biased
  14. Hi Mike, Warm welcome to SGL, hope you enjoy the forums. Brilliant location, one of my favourite Atolls. Stunning images, look forward to seeing more of your posts.
  15. Good luck Gordon, 100% cloud here at the moment.
  16. Once you have a power unit capable of giving at least a good nights viewing, is where the diy sets in. There are many threads on SGL with projects to distribute power. This is one I did for a friend, with an integrated four dewstrip controller an inverter for a laptop, usb pass through and two more 12v outputs.
  17. Congrats they are fine ep's. There has been some good value maxvisions, Agen are usually keenly priced.
  18. HI There, Warm welcome to SGL, hope you enjoy the forums. A couple of books 'turn left at orion' and 'sky&telescope pocket star atlas' will help you round the sky. Also download a planetarium program, lots out there but try Stellarium, its great and free, to be found here ;--- http://www.stellarium.org/
  19. Hi There, The eps that come with a standard scope are ok to get you going. ind your local astro group and go along to one of there meets and see what others have and what may suit you best. The BST explorers / starguider ep's have a great reputation and are around £50 each. There are a couple of guides on eyepieces to look for :-- http://www.swindonstargazers.com/beginners/eyepieces.htm http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/43171-eyepieces-the-very-least-you-need/?hl=%20eyepiece%20%20guide

  21. Thats a great review Bill, thanks for your time and for sharing the review.
  22. Hi Paul, Welcome to SGL, and that is a great first post. Plenty to finbd with a pair of binos. The site mentioned above binocular sky is a great resource as is Stellarium, its great and free to be found here :--- http://www.stellarium.org/
  23. A lot is personal preference, which is why some have multiple scopes.
