      Hi yes I managed to view comet C/2019 Y4 ATLAS  it’s in Camelopardalis initially it just looks like a star however after training my eye I’m sure I could see some tale debry I’m useing a Meade 12” ACF the moon was also great night previous to last and managed to rank the power up to £609 x which is rare last night when was observing two meteorites passed in the field of veiw which was nice to see

  2. Hi I,m considering in purchasing an APO myself however are the TAK! Really worth the premium price tag I be mainly useing for visual maybe somewhere down the line imagining or video Astronomy at some point the only reason I ask is in some reviews and testing against cheaper brands the under seems not to be that far behind ie in quality

      Yes I used to have an CPC 9.25 good scope however got that little thing called aperture fever unfortunately deep sky can be a little more differcult around my neck of the woods however I’ve found Astronomy can be a little bit like fishing wait years for that good catch similar to Astronomy just the same.even tho the planets are still quite low in the horizon at moment I still had pleasant views of Saturn at around 380x I think tho in a few years time if I cannot bring darker sky’s to me I have to go to it

      Well my current set up is a Meade LX90 12”ACF have a sky bortale rating of 6 not to bad for outside London on good nights and seeing conditions the scope can shine however I’ve heard that people have looked through an 14”Sct side by side with an 6” APO and preferred the APO that’s under even worse sky conditions then mine I think however in dark sky conditions the sct,s would come up trumps I think as aperture rules so I’m considering the Skywatcher Evostar 150ED what I’m trying to achieve is what I can see would like to see in more image detail and contrast I suppose sometimes in life quality can be better than quantity?
