  1. Thank you all for your advice. It has been most helpful. dreamcatcher
  2. Jambouk. My scope is a Sky-Watcher 150p Star Discovery goto with a 1.25mm focuser. I only use it for visual.
  3. HI all. I live on the edge of a small market town. I tend to use my scope in our back garden with reasonably clear views to two sides ( having our house and a neighbours on the other two sides ). There is mild to moderate light pollution from street lights. My query is this. Would it be worthwhile investing in a light pollution filter and if so what would be recommended? Thank you in advance for advice given.
  4. Hello to those who offered their advice. It has been most helpful. Thank you all.
  5. HI to all. I am new to astronomy at age 70yrs. I have bought a Sky Watcher star discovery 150mm with synscan version 4 goto reflector. My query is this. I am somewhat confused and am getting conflicting advice. Once the initial 2 star alignment is carried out is it necessary to do the alignment every time I use the scope. Some tell me it is and others say it is not necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in anticipation.
  6. I have a Sky Watcher Star Discovery 150mm synscan goto. I wondered if it is necessary to carry out a polar alignment with a goto setup?
  7. Thanks guys. Look forward to seeing some wonderful things.
  8. Hello to all. I am new to this fascinating hobby. I have just purchased a Sky Watcher star discovery 150mm synscan goto. I also have a reasonable number of lenses eg barlows plossl plus a Baader q turret eyepiece set I wonder if any members could tell me what I might be able to see through this scope. I realise that a number of factors will dictate what can be seen,but a rough guide would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your advice.
