  1. New myself and everyone is very friendly. Just starting out with my new hobby after watching UK TV programmes like sky at night in the past and finally bought a Skymax 90 to view the planets and stars. Welcome!
  2. Wow...many thanks to all of you who replied ....nice to know that there is support there for a newbie. All we need now in the North of England is a cloudless sky ?. I guess I might have been a quick to "mention" how useful it would be to get a Barlow lend from my daughter in"passing" to my wife ? although from what I've read it may be useful with the supplied super 25 wide angle long eye relief lens....I guess making a 12.5 mm? Can I ask why it is particularly called long eye relief? Tanks again and any advice given is most welcome! ?
  3. Hi all I've been lucky enough to buy a Skymax 90 as my first scope with a 10mm and 25mm lens. For father's Day I got a Skywatcher 2x deluxe Barlow and because we've had cloud for days went outside to focus on some TV arials..fascinating...and done leaves on trees...less fascinating?. However cutting to the chase saw a pigeon with my 10mm lens about 150 metres away and clearly saw him blink..buy using my new Barlow...a cloud of blurriness. Now is it because im trying to focus on something too close with a Barlow or should I be seeing something other than standard grey. Don't laugh...it maybe a stupid question but I was always told there's no such thing as.....(,this may be the exception). So hello to all and thanks in anticipation. All best Wooah 62
  4. This is all good information and 11 years on I've bought the Skymax 90 asmy first scope....thanks to all...hope you're all still enjoying your hobby ?
