  1. i have purchased the 5mm It will do for now and il start to build up a collection soon when stock levels are up in shops
  2. mines the 200p 1000mm black tube on an eq5
  3. thanks, thats a great explanation. Mines only 1000.. focal length though, il do the calculations The 5mm will give me 200
  4. 15mm shows jupiter detail?? i didnt think that would be powerful enough. Cheers for the link, i did find a website that had some but they are cheaper on yours
  5. The bst are in the budget im looking at but they are out of stock How bad would the 3.2 be under normal conditions compared to the 5mm? Il definitely be getting some low powered wide eyepieces
  6. never used one at this power and its the only one the shop has in, everything else is out of stock im after a high powered one with good detail within the £50 range for now. Il probably hold on for the 4mm to come back in stock
  7. only have the 10 and 25mm that came with the scope, only had it a couple of weeks
  8. saw that earlier, im considering it but im looking at a higher magnification at the mo
  9. Hi all Looking for an eyepiece for my 200p Been away from astronomy for a few years, sold all my stuff but now im back. im looking for a good planetary eyepiece with good eye relief up to £50. I used to have a tmb 6mm which i liked and used that with a x2 barlow on my skywatcher 250p. Ive been looking at the skywatcher UWA range as they seem to tick all the boxes.......but they are out of stock. I have found one place that has the 2.5mm in stock but im not sore if that will be too much on mine. It will give x400 magnification and mines capable of 405 x magnification.....but i li
  10. first scope is always amazing. seeing things you have never seen before blows your mind. my first was a skywatcher 130 newtonion and it blew my mind. i then upgraded to the 250 as i got a bloody good price on it and that blew it even more
  11. been on the forum for years now......just not been using it
  12. its only a toy for now, im still short on space due to other things i have going on. maybe one day i will have a large set up again
  13. Hi all ive been away from stargazing for about 3 years, it was a new exciting hobby when i first started out but weather and other stuff got in the way, i found that i was getting my stuff out about twice a year....I ended up selling it as it was just sat doing nothing and i needed the space it was taking up. my old set up was a skywatcher 250 on an eq6 with a few eyepieces, filters and a philips webcam plus a few little bits. Last night i purchased a secondhand skywatcher skymax 102 synscan at a bargain price of £75 as a small lightweight toy thats easy to set up and move around, not li
  14. well at least thats some good news then but still not good that they got away with it.... maybe one day things will turn up hopeing to get back up there sometime soon.....if the skies clear up ha ha
  15. Hi all, hows the astronomy center in todmorden doing after the break in last year?? I havent really been on the site since it happened and didnt find out if they ever got any of the stuff back that was stolen. i need to get the big blue time travelling tube out more often and maybe even take a trip up to todmorden again if i get the time.......and a clear night ha ha
