    May 7, 2016: 41-pane H-alpha mosaic

    Wow, excellent. Very sharp, even the proms are visible. What size is the full image?

    SGLX Tickets on Sale Now!

    Unfortunately I'm out too as I will be moving home instead, priorities and all that. I will remain a Star Party Virgin for a while longer. Good thing is it means I can have an immediate clear out of my gear and plan for my new improved observing site at my new home. A 102 APO is beckoning me.... Have a good one folks, I am sure we will meet up at some point. Paul

    What telescope etc are you thinking of bringing to SGLX?

    I had planned to bring my 10" reflector, my Tal 100RS and a little 66mm ED APO, but will now be moving house that week so have had to cancel. I will be there in spirit and will have to contend with viewing the eclipse from my new back garden. Have fun everyone and I hope to get to an event later in the year.

    SATURN - rings peeking over "top" of disk... :)

    'Quality' and 'inspirational' are the words that spring to my mind. Great work.

    When 2 Tals go to war

    Hi Jules, thanks for the side by side test, interesting read. I have just been out tonight and guess what I picked up? A 100RS courtesy of Fleabay to go on my SkyTee 2. It is the one with the 2" Crayford and blue coatings. Unfortunately the night sky has done a runner in Lancashire so I have been unable to test. Paul
  12. 66mm ED APO Baader 8-24mm Zoom Sigma DP3M Single shots are never that sharp but the seeing was quite good tonight. The 66mm ED APO is turning out to be quite a good little scope. Paul
  13. With a very suspicious £1800 BIN and with the same image as the scam ones from a while back? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Astro-Physics-AP130EDFGT-Gran-Turismo-Apochromatic-Telescope-Refractor-/291368941478?pt=UK_Photography_Telescopes&hash=item43d6f137a6 http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/156390-looks-dodgy-astro-physics-ap130edfgt-on-ebay/ Can somebody ID this? Paul
