  3. hi, what do i need for viewing on a laptop,and some snapshots for keep a record of the viewing. Love watching open clusters. Have a SW-BKP200DS on an eq5(manual) mount. advise please, Thanks.
  4. thanks Alan64 i have the same pdf, and did all that is mentioned,this seems a bit well not robust as compared to a nut to hold the central screw.
  5. hi i finally got the bresser mount, while setting up the separator plate, i am not able to tighten it without the mount, and there is only a c-clip below the mounting threads on the main central screw to stop the whole separator plate and central screw from coming down Is this right or am i not doing it correctly. any help will be appreciated . Thanks
  6. wouldn't the fixed mirrors give a steadier image, the newtonian design OTS use all the accessories also so....
  7. Was wondering why MAK & SCT use focusing knobs that move the mirror, rather than have a regular focuser like Craford, Rack and Pinion.... Is there a specific reason behind this, i read some thing about the Image shift, this method causes so why not upgrade the design

  11. hi, there are tradeoff for each of the choices, get the beginner a portable telescope in which he doesnt have to fiddle with the optics
  12. hi i think ronin got it right, could the collimation issue cause the bad seeing at higher power if you have a barlow try it with 25mm ep,if the seeing is bad still you can put it to Atmosphere.
