  1. New eyepieces

  2. Dobsonian Mount Modifications. - DONE!

    thanks btw guys, i will be posting a full follow up on that soon, just gimmi afew days or so, i still aint geting anygood sleep. once i get me a nice big rest ill be up to doing it. and nah no tripping over in the dark, it actually makes a good resting spot for my eyepeice case =) the scope folds over to the handle side, i can allso use my foot on one of the handles to move the dob which is neet too, gonna take off the old dob carrying handle and put a nice strong hook there so i can attach all my equip on it, planisphere/excessory cases etc.
  3. ETX Scopes

    orion's equip will be becoming cheaper soon allso, (inside info) =), there HQ is REALLY amazing i must say. to learn stuff there, just makes you look at the other telescope makers like fool's, for some weird reason.
  4. New eyepieces

    id have to agree with GazOC with that.
  5. New eyepieces

    id go for a 26mm, 32mm or 40mm, looking at your eyepeice set skip the 26mm since you have a 20mm 1.25, id probly go for a 32mm or a 40mm, i just stick to one 26mm 2" , but then again my set of 1.25's is alot larger then yours. i skiped 20mm 25mm range with 1.25's thats why i went with a 26mm 2"

    thanks for the pic grant, heh they did it exactly like me!, cept my wheels are on the other side, its a good thing tho, so i dont have to mod anything elese and the dob pulls back into the mount when i elivate it, heh i just built it the way i thought was right,didnt see that pic till now hehe, anyways heres some nice picture of it for you all =) it makes moving your 40kg dob 30x easyer!!! and nah the wheels dont hit the ground when it isnt elivated if your wondering, obviously, wouldnt want that!
