  1. Do you reckon it's worth it? I have pondered it for a while now...
  2. Dont worry about being strong, you have hit the nail on the head. "With its included stabilizing tripod, you will get the perfect view every time" Oh thank goodness, you get a "stabilizing tripod"
  3. Bought the 30mm for my Bresser Dob. I presume it's not too close to the 35mm limit of an f/5? Also a very nice looking eyepiece
  4. Aside from the finderscope, they are well designed, well built, good value for money and easy to use. And the 10" is just £86 more than the SW 250px. Which, to me at least, seems like an inferior scope.
  5. Stumbled across this scammy affair today... I just had to laugh at their claims... wow that bird 10 miles away looks amazing! At least it has lower viginetting than "Brand 3" "#moonsurfer" "Get 4 Telescopes at Once"!!!!! I wonder if they would even deliver anything if you bought one... This kind of thing should be illegal... some poor person might just believe it... P.s I hope this is the right place to post... mods feel free to delete if not.
  6. Just a Rigel Aline... I was feeling a bit daunted by the whole collimation concept but it turned out just fine... I used this guide https://garyseronik.com/a-beginners-guide-to-collimation/...
  7. Ok maybe I'm being fussy... I'm sure it doesn't affect the optical performance which, by the way, was absolutely mind blowing to me... Seing M13 as a mass of stars for the first had me laughing out loud with excitement... I just feel sorry for any poor soul walking their dog nearby as seeing someone wearing a balaclava and a hooded coat laughing to themselves in a field must be pretty alarming
  8. Thanks very much John, I guess it's a, "you learn from your mistakes" situation. It has also highlighted the unusually high amount of debris on the primary that was there out of the box... Looks like it's due a clean
  9. Tonight I got in about 1 hour of observing before the clouds rolled through... At the end of the session there was no dew internally but the outside of the tube was very wet. After returning home I placed the tube upright with the with the cover on and the focuser plug in. Fast forward another hour I checked on it and both mirrors are completely dewed up! What should I do!? Or what should I not do...
  10. Let me know how you get on with the riser... If it works well I might consider buying one. Also as a side note, does anybody here know of a cheap way to prevent dew on my telrad... most time i've have is about 10 minutes before its completly dewed up. It may just be down to the conditions... half an hour later it was completly foggy.
  11. There is a perfect spot for a telrad between the focuser and the finder bracket.
  12. There isn't anything immediately apparent. The lens cover goes on ok. So no major deformities in the shape of the OTA. I will do a proper inspection later tonight.
  13. @FLO thank you so much for that Steve. I super appreciate it. customer service 10/10
