  1. Thanks Kev. I will try to remember to post lots of pics
  2. Great build so far Kev been following it keenly since the start. Cannot wait until you build your rolling roof. Planning to do a build myself very soon and your build along with many other great builds on this forum have given me plenty of ideas and inspiration.
  3. Hi, Just interested what is the luna 100 list ?
  4. Many thanks Micheal they do look good and the price is reasonable
  5. Many thanks for the advice I will try and locate my local astro club and try some out.
  6. Hi, What eyepieces are best for someone who wears glasses. Any advice? I am looking for good priced not necessarily the cheapest or most expensive.
  7. As it was clear this morning I thought I would have a look at Jupiter shining brightly. I set my scope up and was amazed at the view it was the first planet I have observed. I got quite good detail several of the bands and colouring and could see two of its moons. I was gob smacked cannot wait to get a view of Saturn.
  8. Managed to try the scope out a few nights ago. But had a problem with heavy dew. What is a good solution a dew shield or heaters? What is good for eyepieces as they were soaked with dew within an hour?
  9. Hopefully can try it out soon. Thought it was going to be ok this evening but soon clouded over and now its raining.
  10. Is this suitable for the SW150PDS and is it still available?
  11. Whilst waiting for some clear skies decided to check collimation. Glad I checked as both secondary nd primary mirrors were out. Do these scopes go out of collimation often?
  12. Still waiting for clear skies, just cloud and rain. Hope not a silly question - My mount is EQ5 Pro with synscan - when using the mount using goto do the RA and Dec clamps need to be on or off?
  13. I have had a look at APT and will give it a try
