    Viewing the sun directly through my 12" dob

    I must agree a frac would be a much better tool, something from 80mm to 120mm f5 to f7.5, but you would still get good views with a newt but as said not ideal. charl.

    yes that would be great, and the shroud is a must or all you will see is light coming in from the opening. charl.

    your going to need a filter covering your open end or if you have a small cap in your large cap you could put a filter on that but the full option would be the better. badder solar film is great for making your own. you will beable to use your eps as useal. charl. ps heres the film https://www.firstlightoptics.com/solar-filters/baader-astrosolar-safety-film-nd-50.html you can also get glass filter but there pricey and at 12inch I think you may have to reduce the size because I don't think the film is big enough or maybe thay do bigger sizes.

    Moon and Mars

    great moon mate, with the moon it helps to stack a number of images, I go for at least 50 but 100 or more is better, your a tad out of focus but a good image all the same, a barlow would be good for mars, mars is tricky at the best of times. clear skys. charl.

    thanks Wouter , its a daylight shot mate, it would only result in making noise to darken the background, my goal is to show as is mate. its a nice lighting at dusk if you catch at the right time. clear skys, charl.

    Todays Prom Action 13-9-18

    thanks Dave, you been hard at work mate, you havnt missed much, i think these proms have been the hilite of the month for me, still loads of cloud here today, i did try thismorrning but with no luck, the proms are still showing according to gong. clear skys, charl.
  13. im going to have to say it, crazzy money for a travel scope, a £500 ed scope would do the job just fine, is it made of gold or something, im sorry to be a neg but i was shocked to see the price and what its for. charl.
