  1. This year has had a major effect on my hobby. Mg gear has had so little use that I decided I can't justify having it lying around unused, so nearly all my Televue ep's have been sold and I'm getting rid of the Dob and the frac replacing with two pairs on binos and a tripod. Extreme grab n go and not massively expensive when not in use plus the 10x50's can be used on family walks.
  2. Not the FLO one but I have used one of a similar length with my old Heritage 130p and it fitted and worked just fine.
  3. The XW's are very nice ep's I have the 5mm and when conditions allow for x240 it provides excellent views.
  4. Have a look at the sun web site and read the article and the comments beneath some are really funny.
  5. Initially I found my Nagler 12T4 a bit tricky to use you have to get your eye placement just right otherwise you get blackouts. The 12T4 comes with a ring to aid with initial pupil placement did you get something similar with the 17T4? If you find you can't get on with the ep I can certainly recommend the 19mm Panoptic as a possible replacement it is a real beauty to use.
  6. There was a family who used a gas BBQ in their tent down on the Llyn Peninsula last summer I think the mother of the family died. Gas appliances should never be used in a tent.
  7. William Optics FLT 98 carbon fibre & tube rings and WO RD £1200 ono If that's for sale the Televue 2" Everbrite diagonal has to go £180 no offers And the Vixen Porta II mount as new condition £190 no offers Televue Panoptic 19mm £140 no offers I have other stuff too.
  8. Televue products are included it says so on the email but not on the website. Bear in mind the 10% is taken of the price before the VAT is added so it's more like 8% off.
  9. My brother has really come up trumps with my birthday presant he got me the Sir Patrick Moore Year Book of Astronomy 2012 and to top it off it's signed by the great man himself, I'm well happy.
  10. Personally I'd leave it. I would have thought it will have no impact on the views the telescope produces.
  11. I normally observe Jupiter at x150 or x200 so if you've been able to use x300 on it then you've seen it a fair bit bigger than I have. There is plenty of detail there you have to get your eye in which takes a bit of practice plus time at the eye piece. With your tracking scope this should be a pleasure to do. Have you got a seat? Sitting down to observe makes it easier to concentrate and this can make the target appear a little bit bigger.
