  1. Mount and eyepieces sold, so will re-advertise OTA and other bits in a separate listing. MODS - If I can't work out how to move this to the "Sold/Expired" sub-Folder, please can you do the honours? Thanks! Jon

    Televue 55mm Plossl

    Hi Stu, Not sure if you're still looking, but there's one been advertised on Astro Buy&Sell a couple of days ago. Jon

    Undecided but Hi.

    Welcome to the forum. I don't do photography (yet), but there's loads of good advice about imaging & photography in the "Beginners" section (and the "Grown Ups" sections!) Jon

    Hi from Bavaria

    Yup, sounds familiar to me!

    Welcome Dan. As a "returner" to the hobby, I find the forum really helpful and the members generous with their advice. Jon

    Astrokev's ROR - The Build

    Embaraasingly, I've done that! (although not on an Obsy). I now have a Second-hand Bosch cable-locator (I tried cheap ones, but this one really works).
  8. A unique bit of footage. Being "old", it also amazes me that the guy can post it on Twitter from space!

    Better late than never...

    Welcome! I ride a motorbike and don't have a car, so unlikely to get to gatherings (transporting kit is trick!), so the forum is a great place to make contact with other addicts! Jon
  10. Thanks for the answer and the link.
  11. And another thing .............! Although newbies can't create posts in the buy/sell forum (quite understandable to avoid scams and people just joining to sell something), its really useful to be able to view/buy as a newbie (or "returner" in my case). I've saved myself a fortune by buying a load of 2nd-hand kit from there, and got some excellent advice from the sellers in some cases. Jon
  12. Been here a couple of months now and found the Beginners forums an absolute goldmine of info! Its a great idea, because more experienced members who want to help can answer, but noobs (like me) don't clog-up the "grown Ups" forums with daft questions! Excellent forum all round, so thanks to all mods & admins for the work, and thanks to members for being generous with their time & knowledge. Jon
  13. Supplementary question!! What's an O111 filter used for? Is it primarily for imaging or visual? Thanks, Jon

    Hi from Bavaria

    Hi Bob, Noob questions a forum speciality in the Beginners areas!! Cheers, Jon

    "Hello, Universe!"

    Welcome from the Fens, John! As a complete beginner, the Beginners forums on here are really useful. I'm returning to the hobby after a very) long break, and the members are really helpful, esp in those beginners forums. Cheers, Jon
