  1. Hi Erik, a warm welcome from a not so sunny Scotland. all the best and clear skies. Scott
  2. Excellent i love this image!
  3. Yes where i am its great, no city glare so altogether pretty good skies. just wish we had more cloud free nights! Scott
  4. Hello and welcome, Now that really is some set up!
  5. Lovely early morning here so just took a few pictures with the iphone, as for creeping around you will get used to that!! Jupiter and the moons are a lovely sight in the scope. Enjoy and all the best!. Scott
  6. Quick photo of theese 2 this morning cant make out Saturn in the photo i did see it however, very low for me but glad i managed a wee look.
  7. Skies are as grey as grey can be here today, great images again tho!
  8. Yes pretty much exact same although reflectors tend to be much bigger apertures so solar film would have to be bigger sheet size. very easy to make you own. give it a go, just be sure not to damage the film however, good way to check is to hold the filter up to the sun with the naked eye check for tiny holes. all the best. Scott
  9. i made this filter for my Evostar 120, made with plywood and Baader solar film nd50. Scott
  10. Hi Geoff i too suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis in my knees so i totally relate to you problem, and i'm only 43!! still, i get out as much as i possibly can and do both imaging and observing, totally agree with the polar alignment comment!! i use a foam pad as it helps a lot. anyway all the very best and don't let it beat you!. Scott
  11. Another in agreement for FLO being the best, great service and care. all the best with new scope and enjoy. Scott
  12. Would it be Kembles cascade perhaps?
  13. Thanks again for the replies, i have decided to wait until i can afford the HEQ5 and make do withe my current set up till then, been a great last few nights with the skies here and im really making the most of it as well. thanks. Scott
