  1. After few days with funny clouds and some haze in the night sky, i can try at last my new Barlow. I was little worried about the chromatism that sometimes the barlow lens ad to the views, but i don, t see any chromatism at all. I try it on Jupiter, Saturn, Moon and simply scanning some star fields, and everything looks perfect to my eyes. The 1.5x feature, that is achieved simply threading the optical group of the barlow (the black piece) into the filter thread of the eyepiece converts it into 3 possibilities: In the case of 25mm super plossl, i have 48x (eyepiece alone), 72x (optic part threaded), and 96x (full barlow). I don.t see any image degradation. In my 10mm ep, the full barlow gives 240x,nice on Jupiter and Saturn. The only thing is that the eye relief of the ep is too tight. I need another ep in that magnification with better eye relief and big lenses too look thru. The thread of the 10mm don.t accept the optical group, maybe the thread in the ep has something damaged, i don.t use it never before. Now, i just need to add 2 or 3 ep to my set, to have one low power widefield, and maybe an 8mm,and 6mm for high powers. I know that is not a spectacular first light, but is my first one.
  2. Thank you very much, your explanation is really useful, i will try, and see how accurate that system can be. I post my experience in next days. Best regards. Thanx again.
  3. Hi, i just presented myself yesterday in newcomers. I have a skywatcher classic200p dobsonian scope. I have installed on my phone the Skeye app. Skeye has the feature to work in "push to" mode, similar to the Orion Intelliscope system. What is the best system to attach my smartphone to the tube? Phone cover+velcro? I read that the performance can be wrong due to phone magnetic sensors and the metal tube of the scope. Some trick? Thanx in advance to all. Best regards.

  5. Thank you, i love the simplicity of the dobsonians, in 2 minutes, take the scope out, put the eyepiece on the focuser, and enjoy. Best regards.
  6. Thanx Rob, you are really kind. Sure, i begin to post my experiences or question in the boards very soon!! Best regards
  7. Hi Steve, i live near Barcelona, 35km away. I worked in Barcelona city for more than 25 years, is like my second home, but never lived on it. I live in a 20000 population village, more relax here, and better skies!!! Thanx for your welcome!!! Best regards
  8. Thank you!! In my opinion, a telescope is one of best things that money can buy. You become a space explorer from your backyard!!
  9. Hi, i..m on Stargazers Lounge for long time ago, but now i have a new scope at last!!! The scope is a Skywatcher classic200p dobsonian, and i received it just one month ago. I.m really happy with it. For now, i.m using the stock eyepieces that come with the scope, a 25mm and 10mm super plossl 52. Yesterday i was received a Celestron Omni barlow, and that expands my magnification range. I posted some pics with my set. Congratulations to Stargazers lounge team, this is one of the best sites to learn about astronomy and equipment. Besf regards to everybody
  10. Tottally agree, that ones from deepskywatch.com are the best you can find in the web. And the best of all...they are totally free!! :-)
  11. Hey my friends. I´ve have found an interesting article about the observation of the Horsehead nebula by a guy with a 6" reflector telescope, with some sketches too: http://www.perezmedia.net/beltofvenus/archives/000379.html I hope that can be interesting for the topic. Best regards to all. Joaquim Q.
  12. Hi to all. My name is Quim. I.m music writer and producer from Barcelona, Spain. First of all, sorry for my english, i know that i need some lessons!. I have been amazed about astronomy since the age of 10 (actually i,m 51). When i was 12, my parents buy me a 60mm refractor, a Zenith russian scope, that i,m keeping actually. For work questions i have been really busy during years, and time to time i take out my Zenith, and now i really want a big eye to observe, coz i have more time lately. I have been member long time ago of the "Agrupació astronómica de Sabadell", one of the most knonw astronomy societies here in Spain, and i really enjoyed the seminars amd observations. I have in mind to buy a Orion XT10g scope, coz i really want to explore mainly the deep sky. I love stargazers lounge and i read a lot of topics in the forums about scopes, eyepieces, deep sky... Nice to be here. Best regards. QUIM.
