  1. In theory it will, but confirm that the input voltage is 110/240v switchable.... most are these days, but it doesn't hurt to be sure.

    A dream job for someone?

    That job has me written all over it.... one problem.. the address..... the commute is a little too far.

  5. Yup, forgot to mention Bobs Knobs.. I got those too and they make collimation MUCH easier.

    I can't say that I've ever seen streamers in a globular.. Do you think that it's and optical illusion?

    Messier 71

    Your sketches are very good..
  9. This is soo awesome.. nicely done.
  10. The laser collimator on a SCT will be useless. The best way is on (if not a artificial star far away) than a bright star high in the sky and center the secondary shadow on the the star out of focus at various stages at both sides of focus. If setting up for planetary imaging, than I do the same thing but through a CCDs.. which is probably more accurate.

    Venus - Oct 19

    Good stuff... daylight planetary, especially Venus and Mercury) observation is risky but obviously worth it.
