  1. 200p.will get you some wonderful views.and could be all you'll ever need.but go to the shop and see what dobsonions are all about.hope you get sorted out soon.try before you buy.make sure your able to lift it and fit it in your car if your going to be moble .I'd never change from my dobsonion. Merry Xmas.
  2. Viewing in 8" vs 10" dob?

    A good question. Myself I chose the 8" .as I'm getting on in years. And portability. I'M sure either will last you lifetime .and give you some excellent veiws.if you can find a used 8"/10 "dobsonion in good condition then that will help with your budget. Enjoy it they are both great scopes.and in all honesty you'l need to spend a fortune to out perform it.IMHO.
  3. Eye Pieces you would like to try out

    Just like more clear skies at the moment.but I'm happy with my bst eyepieces. Very good value for the money.IMHO.
  4. Beginner Scope

    Another vote for the 8"dobsonion. A fabulous scope.will show you some fantastic views.and simple to use.IMHO.
  5. Slowmotion control

    They slide past each other. Hope this helps.I too cannot find the YouTube video now.it is a simple idea .and not to difficult to make.I did put pics up about how I made the slow motion controls in diy astronamy section whilst.I was making it.
  6. Slowmotion control

    I will try to explain. The wooden center section has 2 separate holes.which the 2 metal rods go into.the lower rod is a plain rod.and is used for large adjustments with a locking knob.the upper rod is threaded.with a handwheel for fine adjustments.this a basic explanation. Hope it help you understand.
  7. Slowmotion control

    I can't upload a video to this site for some reason.much to my annoyance.but it works very well indeed.
