    Really misty here, and with all the light pollution > it looks almost cloudy.

    35mm eyepiece

    Hi mrdusty If you are new to astronomy, perhaps give the 1.25" eyepieces a whirl for a while. You can always try 2" later. Personally I have all 2" eyepieces now, but it's down to many factors which you prefer, one of which is often cost.

    SGL 2018 Pitch Plan

    Yea it's a massive shame, we was booked for Friday and Saturday, and was hoping against hope that the weather forecast would improve. But it seems now that fri, sat are going to have torrential downpours and 50mph+ gales. Been looking forward to this event ever since the last one ended. But we are in two small cheap tents, if they don't blow away, they will probably float away . So like Steve, we will not be attending unfortunately, and similarly it was a difficult decision as we was looking forward to meeting everyone again, and having a laugh at the quiz. All the best to you all. Don't get too drunk or you may end up in the Wye

    Binoviewers

    I have only read great things about the WO bino's. Personally I have always wanted a pair, but it throws the weight of my scope off big time. So an extra counterbalance may be needed. Let us know how you get on with them (if you buy em).

    Reflector vs refractor

    Also depends on if you intend to do astrophotography. If you are visual then personally I would recommend something like a 10 inch Dobsonian. Probably best views per £/$ you can get.
  11. Great scope, enjoyed the views from it the other day in Wymeswold. Amazed how pin sharp stars are in yours in comparison to my 11inch. Different focal length makes a difference. Amazing comparing M27 (Dumbell) it was amazing in my 11inch sct, looked the same in yours initially, then I noticed loads more stars, and the longer your peered, even more,truly a sight to behold.
