    Hello Again!

    Hi Pip So far I've found the EQ2 with the little frac to be fine, the image stabilises after about a second if I tap the tripod and about three seconds when focussing (even at 150X - 180X), even more surprising there is no image shake when using the slow motion control in RA which makes tracking a doddle! I was expecting to upgrade the mount pretty quickly but I don't think I'll need to... The sad thing about the sea air is there probably isn't a solution for salt residue on the mirror - I had mine here for about 5 years before the coatings showed serious degradation - Im sure yours

    Hello Again!

    Hi All, Haven't posted here for quite some time so I thought it right and proper to say hello again..... So hello everyone and thank you for maintaining such an outstanding resource as SGL I'm very much a visual observer of the night sky and used to enjoy the views from a very nice Orion Optics short tube 8" reflector, unfortunately two catastrophic events conspired in its ultimate demise....... 1. Living next to the coast I hadn't appreciated the effect sea air and condensation has on mirrors. 2. Children! Long story short, having removed the mirror cell from the tube
