  1. Rigel cap came and i tried collimating with it and it was piece of cake! Superb piece of kit and no wobble!
  2. In the mean time i purchased Rigel Aline collimation cap, so i'm going to try with it later and see what happens (fingers crossed).
  3. I'll try with electrical tape and i'm going to put some PFTE tape around th.e focuser thread
  4. Greetings! My scope has finally arrived and first thing first i went to collimate the scope. I think i have prepared for the job thoroughly enough by reading this and this plus i have watched few videos on youtube. So full of nervous anticipation i put the cheshire eyepiece in the focuser and with the help of previous guides i started collimating! Gasp! It all went relatively smooth with minor sweating on my part and it was looking like i'm going to nail it, until i accidentally rotated the cheshire... ... and to my horror i saw that everything is out of collimation!
  5. Fantastic! Thank you very much for in depth how to /cheers
  6. I'll then stick for now with 9mm barlowed for high power, and yes Krk have really nice geography and nature, especially before and after the high tourist season
  7. I live almost dead on 45 parallel Currently i have 9mm Ultra Wide CELESTRON 66° which i plan to use with a barlow so i would get around 160x, i was thinking about 3mm eyepiece for those good seeing moments to push the scope to ~220...
  8. Thank you all for your insights! I have - 15mm Gold Line, Ultra Wide 66° already, 32 mm is great idea for finder eyepiece. On the subject of moon filter, should i get ND96 0.6 or 0.9? I'm worried that 0.9 would be too much for my scope.
  9. Greetings fellow humans! I have Heritage 130p arriving shortly and i want to buy few things for it, but i'm not 100% sure they are right for this scope. Would this barlow work O.K. on this scope and this collimation eyepiece? If not what would you recommend and why?
  10. Hi! Are - 20mm Gold Line, Ultra Wide 66°, (15mm eye relief), 1.25" (31.7mm) (an excellent budget upgrade to the standard eyepieces that are bundled with telescopes). Weight 99.8g (inc. caps), £20. - 15mm Gold Line, Ultra Wide 66°, (15mm eye relief), 1.25" (31.7mm) (an excellent budget upgrade to the standard eyepieces that are bundled with telescopes). Weight 78.3g (inc. caps), £20. - 9mm Ultra Wide CELESTRON 66°, (15mm eye relief), 1.25" (31.7mm) (an excellent budget upgrade to the standard eyepieces that are bundled with telescopes), Weight 117.8g (inc. caps),
  11. I expect fuzzy greys A fter some thinking i decided to go with 150/1200 SW Skyliner Dobson, in the spec is said that it has Pyrex primary parabolic mirror, Cryford 2" focuser with an adapter to 1,25", it comes with 10 mm and 25 mm EP (it does not state FOV or maker), and with a 6x30 finder scope. What else do you recommend to buy in terms of filters, eyepieces or collimator device?
  12. Oh one important thing that i forgot to write is that my primary observing spots are on gravel roads with some bigger chunks...
