  1. Congrats on your milestone John. I don't think we even had as many as 100 members when you joined.
  2. I have the Takumar 50mm 1.4. Cost peanuts but absolutely love it. So well built, buttery smooth focus and defined clicks on the aperture. Used it for my recent attempts at Neowise. A little blue fringing on the brightest stars.
  3. Epic set of images Ant. NLC and the Comet.... Wow. How lucky is that. Wonderful looking image.
  4. Oh no, i packed away too early. Was the comet easily visible from Portchester? I was looking around 1am in Eastleigh but couldn't spot it.
  5. I need one of those..... I used to have one, it was awesome.
  6. That's a great timelapse. Also subbed and liked.
  7. Yes John, that is absolutely stunning! Wow
  8. That's awesome news. It's gonna be great!
  9. Great to see you getting back into it Ant
  10. Perhaps ask for Celestron's help first before writing off the SLT mount. Or as you say, it could the chance for an upgrade. You'll have no problem selling the OTA on its own.

Its a great scope, identical to the Skywatcher Skymax 127. The C6 is also a great scope, we have one, it replaced our Skymax 127 many moons ago. I only did it at the time as the C6 was cheap and the 127 sold for the same money. Otherwise i wouldn't have bot
