  1. Hello, Someone has experience on this upgrade (TOA130 to 4")? Would I go for a feathertouch (e.g. 3545) instead of tak4"? Thanks for looking, Luis
  2. 100% agree with Peter. Good border correction and wide field are EP lasting for a lifetime. From Hyperion onwards would be my advise... if wallet allows of course . TV Panoptic (used) are also a good entry point, nagler/ethos will take you to another quality step. Luis
  3. Hello Olly, In FS128 class, I would push to the TOA130 (I am suspicious ), being a slight faster scope and a triplet with better optical design. High cost and heavier - sure, but some used units sometime appear for sale at acceptable prices. Just my 2 cents.... Very complete review can be found in astromart of FS128 and TOA. Clear Skies, Luis
  4. Ok, I will take in account. Good if someone could give real experience feedback. I can always use the bino in the TOA130... Luis
  5. Hello, I have decided for an used TOA130 (FS128 was also on the list). TOA is rare in used market but some good deals appear tim to time. Triplet design, fast f7.7 vs. f8.1 are arguments in favour of TOA. It weights significantly, namely in the lens side , carefull to guarantee a sturdy mount... Just my 2 cents.... Good review in astromart: Astromart Reviews - Takahashi FS128 vs TOA130 Luis
  6. Hello, Have a TOA130 bought used, for litlle less than FS128 pries anounced. TOA is not very often available in the used market but I really believe it worth the difference as being a triplet besides the different optical design (heavy but sturdy ). TOA is f7.7 litle faster than f8.1 FS128. Just my 2 cents here posted.... Very good review in astromart: Astromart Reviews - Takahashi FS128 vs TOA130 Clear skies, Luis
  7. Megrez88 advantage is to be a f5.6 in 88 mm aperture, grab and go.... I got explendid views of brighter DSOs with nagler22, ethos13 - would you say that the binoviewer would require more aperture for good viewing, even for brighter targets? Thanks, Luis

  9. Hello Eagleseye, Very nice deep sky shots! Using any light pollution filter, especially for galaxies? Luis
  10. Anyone with experience on this target setup for observation - deep sky? Will the Megrez88 + WO Bino have focus with 2" diagonal? Tks for looking, Luis
  11. Thanks you all for the welcome and for sneeking at my photos. Luis
  12. Cool Image! there is a slight effect in bright stars - filters? What was total imaging time for L? Cheers, Luis
  13. Thanks for the welcome msg. Just left my recent Perseus double cluster image, lets say my first contribution! Cheers, Luis
  14. SBIG ST2000, G11, TOA130 @ f5.3, 20x120s L + 9x120s RGB Bin2x2, SDMask, DDP, CS2 http://astrosurf.com/santo/ceu_profundo.html Taken near Lisbon, Portugal. Thanks for looking, Luis
  15. Hello, I am new in this forum and hope to learn and share my knowlege in astronomy. Astrophotography is my game for about 1 year... not very often I do use an eyepiece in my scope Setup is G11+TOA130+ST2000 which I use near Lisbon, Portugal. Have a small/portable Megrez88+Bresser Giro for visual in holidays. Photos are in: Céu Profundo (DSO) Thanks for looking. Luis
