  1. Should be interesting to see the James Webb space telescope come into service in the near future, hopefully not a repeat of Hubble when it was first used, as it wont be close enough to reach with a service mission. I can imagine the images it will produce will be in a different league compared to Hubble.
  2. so my Ota was replaced today, so all good now, stuck the chesire in and gave the scope a good collimation as it was a bit off. ?
  3. welcome aboard, I've just joined my local astronomical society of which is a great way to learn and meet people. ?
  4. hmmm, problem is I haven't knocked it, scope sits in the corner of the room on its own, and with the recent weather it hasn't been used.
  5. Maybe the duck is floating on gravitational waves.
  6. haha, its been raining non stop since I left my local astronomical society Thursday night.
  7. it looks like the metal plate securing the finder inside the tube has caused it, could of been knocked or tightened too much and pinched the tube, nothing to worry about? just annoying as I've only just got it.
  8. bought my new skywatcher 150p dob less than few weeks ago, only used it three times and have just noticed what looks like a crack by the finder scope, what do you reckon, scopes secondary mirror was out of alignment out of the box, could it of been dropped?
