    Encoder upgrade to Orion Optics Dob

    I agree. Using the OO VX14 with the nexus is a dream. Easy to set up and use.

    Total Lunar Eclipse 2019 Info

    Work tomorrow but a drive east might be my only chance to get a view. The unreliable forecasts frustrate me.

    Total Lunar Eclipse 2019 Info

    Looks like the usual low level cloud cover here... So frustrating but I can’t recall the last decent night for months. Given the lack of accuracy though I will have to set the alarm to check with my own eyes during the night.

    Lunt LS80THa and eyepieces/accesories

    I use the Baader zoom in mine. The Lunt is good but I tend to use the ED120 with Baader Herschel wedge alongside the LS80 and actually find the Lunt zoom works very well in that. Also one of the best I’ve used is my TV radian 10mm. Solar shield is a very good idea and I also made a large cover to allow longer sessions without frying. A great choice of scope but I would question the focusser marking with the retailer and seek a replacement.

    Show us your set up in action at night.

    That is an interesting tabletop mount in picture 1
  6. Very good images and I like the presentation format too

    July Lunar Eclipse

    Sadly the forecast for tonight is poor - I’ll keep my eye on th sky later maybe lucky to get a gap.

    Live rocket launch

    Amusing subtitles... always interesting to watch a launch
  9. Yes it is - very pleased with the performance both WL and normal night Astro
  10. Nice write up Mike, always a pleasure to read. I can relate to your experience completely. That’s a lovely looking scope and the performance sounds excellent too. I was amazed at the OOVX14 and now usually flip between that and the TV85 for night - though the VX14 can’t be described as portable it is still manageable and great for dso with the nexus push to system. I do use someone’s cast off 120ED for white light alongside the Lunt 80. I’ll be interested to learn what name Stanley’s brother eventually gets christened with

    Solar viewing protection

    I suppose we all get used to the conditions we live in... just sounds so hot compared to the U.K. we’re gritting the roads because they are melting A few cm of snow and we shut down, a few hot days and a few weeks with no rain and we’re ready for hosepipe bans - not very good at handling anything outside our fairly narrow comfort zone

    Solar viewing protection

    Totally agree

    Solar viewing protection

    Totally understand that comment - my half Irish dna really doesn’t like this weather.... Next up will be the air con version I’ve been managing mini sessions - just in shorts and fully screened with the solar shield - works for about 15 mins then need to dash into the shade to recover for a while Ironic - had some great viewing this week and it’s been incredibly hot and a full moon...
