  1. Thanks all for the replies. Peter, I love that set up! I wish I could put something permanent down, but being in the Army I move far too often.
  2. Hello all, I am new to astronomy, but have reached the conclusion that I want to move purely to the dark side. I currently have a Celestron CPC1100, and was contemplating going down the wedge route etc.. however I have now decided that rather than compromising, I'd rather sell up and start from scratch. I have been looking at a lot of different options, and would like to know others suggestions without prejudicing the responses by venturing by own initial preference. My skill is at level 0, my budget around £2500. I have a Nikon d610 DSLR, and would be prepared to use this initially with the intention of buying a CCD later (when I have more pocket money). Thanks, Tim
  3. I bought my CPC 1100 with a baader focuser and diagonal already attached. Now that I have tried to put a T-adapter on, I see that I am missing something somewhere as it does not attach. Should there be something between the telescope and the visual back (the visual back and if so is it easily replaced? Thanks, Tim

  5. Hello Lewis, Welcome to the forum. Tim
  6. Hello, warm welcome to you. Tim
  7. That shows it off better than just looking at the pic from the nasa website. Incredible!
  8. Exactly the same here. I did buy a new scope which I maintain is for the benefit of the childrens' education: really it's all mine!
