  1. This is what I use. A little expensive but lightweight, long lasting and lots of connections. Worth the money for me. https://www.skyatnightmagazine.com/reviews/accessories/bresser-portable-power-supply-100-watt-review/
  2. Hi, I am wanting an ES 30mm 82° eyepiece if anyone has one to sell. They are out of stock everywhere that has them at a decent price with no word of when they will be available again. Thanks.
  3. I believe the human race will be already wiped out by then. Either by killing each other or by us ruining the planet we live on.
  4. I know I’ll be pushing it with the 9mm for most nights but would be a nice option to have for those rare times? I will take a look at those eyepieces you suggest too, thank you.
  5. I am just wanting a good mix for everything really. There’s also an option of a tele-extender. Would that be worth getting at all?
  6. I am looking at getting a few ES eyepieces for my CPC 1100 (F10). I looked at televue but can’t justify the extra cost when the ES ones should be more than good enough with this scope. I am wanting wide fields as obviously the scope naturally had a narrow FOV. I have a 2 inch clicklock visual back and 2 inch diagonal so I am thinking of the following and would like to hear people’s opinions on if you think these are a good choice/mix of eyepieces. ES40mm 68 degree ES 30mm 82 degree ES 20mm 100 degree ES 9mm 100 degree.
  7. Hi all I am looking to add the Baader maxbright 2 binoviewer to my Celestron CPC1100 F/10. I am using a William Optics dielectric 2 inch diagonal at the moment. I know I can buy a 2 inch nosepiece for the binoviewer so my question is, is anybody else using this combo and achieving focus ok because of the quite long light path? I have spoken to the great people at FLO who think that it should be ok but there is a small chance it won’t be and I’ll have to change to maybe a baader diagonal with shorter light path and I’d rather not have to do that if I can help it!

  8. I have Helios Lightquest 16x70’s and on a tripod I can make out the rings of Saturn. Well, more like a disk round Saturn but still I am very impressed with them especially as I’ve read that it wasn’t possible with magnification under 20. The 4 main moons of Jupiter are clearly seen too. I had Celestron 15x70 but I sent them back after 1 day, you couldn’t make anything out in the night sky with them. Everything just looked like big grey golf balls but they would focus perfectly on buildings. I’m glad I spent the extra money on the lightquests.
  9. Hi Eddie. Yes I’m aware of this and it’s something I would like to pursue whenever you guys are up and running again. I visited the observatory at Crosland hill once many years ago but I understand that it’s not in use anymore?
  10. Hi everybody. I’m new to the forum. I’ve been interested in Astronomy for many years but not really done much with it apart from some very casual viewing with a small scope years ago and more recently with some decent binoculars and a tripod. I’m wanting to get into this hobby a little more seriously now and I will be investing in a scope at some point. I like the look of the Meade Lx90, probably the 10 inch version and hopefully I will try and maybe pick up a second hand one if I can find one at a decent price somewhere but I am also open to advice from the wise and experienced folk here! I’m
  11. Hi all. I’m new to the forum and I stumbled across this section. Is there anybody that lives in the Holmfirth/Huddersfield area? I’ve been interested in the night sky for years now but not done much serious observing and it’s something I want to get into more. I wouldn’t mind tagging along with you one evening to see a few things in the night sky if that’s ok. Thanks in advance!
