  2. works a treat on the horizon 8115 too, that tripod is more discrete than most lol
  3. i have one for visual and i do find the take some glare and glow off. it was a good buy in my own view
  4. small house, large garden out in the sticks with dark skies. a TAL 150APO on a CGEMDX, all the ultima LX's and the job lot for astrophotography (just to give it a whirl) cant forget the huge pension plan so i can retire now and divert all my time (or most) to gardening fishing reading and astronomy. yeah, think that would do for starters
  5. Cleaning the Telescope Mirrors here you go, this site should help edit -: second half of page
  6. you can use it, so long as the clouds are away. you just have a more limited time frame, the darkest hours are few and not exactly pitch black mind

  17. Sorry for the almost exact post, the first one never showed but has no decided to do so, thats mobile posting for you i guess
  18. 150P is an F5 150P8 is an F8 Both have a 1.25"/2" rack and pinion the ads state only 1.25" but thats wrong. The parabolic mirror is fantastic, high quality
  19. 150P is an F5 150P8 is an F8 Both have the 1.25/2" focused even though it stars 1.25" in the ads and that mirror…… tiz fine
  20. Tuff, you're getting another 150P really is a fine bit of kit and holds collimation superbly. Rolled steel tube 2/1.25 rack n pinion focuser, fantastic finder too. I would love the 150P8 to sit by the 150P i already own. Jules, at the price you buy them for, you can't go wrong at all
  21. i am getting that feeling again, best hide the wallet, cheers Mark, i am blaming you lol
  22. Eyepieces this wasn't up when i was looking into binoviewing with my newt, check the mark 3 click stop, looks fair
  23. never bit the bullet (not yet lol) but i did get informed that these EPs would be most suitable with the WO binoviewers i was going to get so.... sorry, no first hand i am afraid, only hear-say EDIT: i will see if i still have the E-mail, not sure but it might even be a question i sent to telescope house themselves
