  1. Hi, Yesterday I had received a very nice bag for my 200p dobsonian which makes it much easier to transport and put away. However I have just one question which may sound a bit daft to some of you. The scope fits the bag perfectly however I have to take the finderscope and rds off as they are to tall to fit in the bag. I was just wondering do I need to keep aligning it every time I remove them from the scope or should they stay aligned ? Again sorry if this is obvious but just wanted to ask. hope you all had a good Christmas
  2. Thanks I also have a RACI Finder as well. That’s how mine is set up.
  3. Hi I have just managed to finally put my telrad onto my scope however I have had to put it on the other side of the finderscope. Because of this it’s a bit awkward to look through especially when the scope is at a low angle . I was wondering is there a better place to put one or not? Or should I only use one or the other not both? thanks

    Astro inspiration for 2019

    Would like to start doing some solar work and also double stars which i havent tried as of yet also the lunar 100. Also would like to finally buy a imaging rig.
  5. Thanks for all the help. I have decided to purchase https://www.rothervalleyoptics.co.uk/geoptik-nadira-astronomy-observing-chair.html this chair
  6. I forgoten that I had some money left over from a voucher that some one had given me so have used that to get the pro version, thanks for all the help.
  7. I tend to do that as well,when it’s cloudy just like looking at the stuff that I could see next like you said . I have just got the interstellarum atlas and was hoping to use it as well as one of the apps.
  8. Hi I currently use stellarium on my iPad along with the free version of Sky Safari. I was just wondering is there a big difference between the pro versions compared to the other two? As im not sure i can justify the price for the pro version but maybe if theres more essential features. Thanks for the help!

    Geoptik Nadira Observing Chair

    Thanks for this Alan, was trying to find a good chair and was trying to find reviews of this one not many came up. as ive been kneeling most of the time when using my dob and was abit awkward in certain positions. Have just ordered it and cant wait for more comfortable observing
  10. Hi Im currently looking around at getting a chair for observing eith my 8 inch dob. I had seen one on flo which looked ideal but was £160 i was hoping for something a lot cheaper which is lightweight. I was looking at ironing chairs but not sure if they would be durable enough. What do you use? Thanks

    What did the postman bring?

    A telrad finder, 9x50 raci finderscope and a 28mm 68 ES eyepiece, had a bit of a sending spree this week
