  4. Welcome, I'm pretty sure there was an8 inch mirror on astrobuyandsell. Steve
  5. Dont forget that whatever finder you use it needs to be aligned with your scope. I use a 6x30 RACI on my mak and wouldn't be without it. I just look along the finder to point to the right region then look through the finder and the target is there. Steve
  6. I've been in the hobby fully for just over a year now and started with an AZGTI and 127 mak. I don't have a great sky view from my garden so alignment stars were always a bit of an issue. I didn't really get on with the phone app so bought the synscan handset. To cut to the chase I've sold all the gizmos bought a solid manual altaz mount and paired the mak with a 150 reflector. I've used this combo extensively now and really enjoy the simplicity of it. Steve
