Evening all, a couple of months ago i asked if some one could tell me what certain things in the sky might look like through my scope and some posted a link to a website that allowed me to enter my scope and ep, it would then show me a skecth of the obhect with the size and brightness i would see it. i think Talitha? any idea what the site is? many thanks

  15. I have posting around lots to try and get some ideas of what filters are good for me however am not having much luck. To put it simply, i have quite a few street lights around my area, some are the older ones with a orange glow, however some are the new, very bright white ones. My scope is 90mm apature and is a refractor. I am looking for something that will reduce LP and enhance contrast on things like Nebulae and galaxies. Can some help with what would be best and where i can get it? i am looking at spending £20 and will def go second hand! cheers
  16. ok cool! are they not the Ep's that come with sw scopes?
  17. ok will do, but if you can recommend a decent ep for about £20 than i will be interested! any ideas welcome!
  18. evening all, just wondering, found this EP that is at a discount price and thought it looked quite good for the money, do people think it would be good? ScopeTeknix Super Kellner 8mm 1.25" eyepiece Thanks,
  19. Evening all, just wondering, where i live i am getting quite a lot of light pollution atm so want to purchase a new LP filter as i broke my old one! well my dog ate it actually! I am looking for one that will greatly reduce the LP as well as give me a lot higher contrast for galaxies etc.. Any Ideas? i am willing to go second hand if thats possible.
