  1. Managed to get my scope out a couple of nights ago, realised Saturn was up I managed to find it straight away and just took this picture with my iPhone. My Scope is a Dobs 200P , is it possible to get a better view than this? If so how? Thanks

  3. Im in the same situation as you People are saying to me 3x would be to much for the scope to handle Let me know ho you get on
  4. Thanks for the info. I will download the software now and I think I will collimate the scope again as I have moved house since it was last out and may of been knocked. Ive just got astro panel and Tuesday night is looking great for viewing.
  5. Hi all I was around a few years ago but never got much time to use my scope because of various things but now its set up again. I have a Dobs 200p 8" with the standard 10mm and 25mm ep and a 2x barlow. What can i expect to see at the moment and should i invest in a 3x barlow and some better eye pieces? Thanks for any help Gav
  6. Thats a great idea thanks for the help guys
  7. Oh that sound good i didnt realise you get instructions, with it been an a4 sheet though is it to small for the 8" dobs?
  8. I think i may go for a filter from flo as i dont want to try same money there my eyes are concerned.. Only problem is there out of stock, i have the dobs 200p so i need the 8" i think. Am i right in thinking the filter sits over the end of the scope?
  9. Hi May be a daft question but dont want to damage my eyes obviosly. I want to view the sun (as its finally showed up in the uk!) is this all i need? http://www.firstlightoptics.com/solar-filters/astrozap-baader-solar-filter.html Thanks Gav
  10. Was up late last night so before going to bed i thought i would check the skies and bingo! clear so i got my scope out to try and see my first Saturn. Found it straight away and was amazed, i was expecting it to be much smaller. Here is a picture i took just with my phone through the EP.
  11. Thanks for all the info. I got up at 3am this morning looking forward to seeing saturn only to open the door to find complete cloud cover.. was not impressed
  12. Im using the tal from flo as i heard good things about it Ive actualy just been out now and was able to make out some very faint black marks on mars. Certainly alot better than before. Was hoping to see saturn as its still clear but might be still a little low so i think i will get couple hours sleep and get up about 3am and see if i can see it
  13. Yea just a smallish dot on the 25mm barlowed cant make out anything. Thinking new ep's is the way to go. My 25mm says wide angle does that make a diffrence? Sorry if i sound daft im still learning.
  14. Yea thats a good description im seeing just a glowing orange disc. I was impressed with jupiter i could make out the main belts and see its moons. I will take a look at that software and maybe in the future purchase some new eye pieces. Im sticking at it though and now waiting for my first saturn
  15. Tried again tonight, cant make any detail out at all, its bugging me now. All im getting is an orangey glowing spot, cant make out any polar cap. Just this minute used the collomating tool and scope was slightly out but no diffrence http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t228/irvine6/6ac86b2b.jpg That was taken off my phone but it is what i see, is that right?
