    Filter for an ST80?

    I recently purchased a kendrick solar filter , with diameter 95-105 to fit both my 70mm and 80mm scopes. The outer diameter of the ST80 dew sheild is 100mm so the 104mm should fit, if it has adjustment screws to tighten cheers

    Astronomy Center Ltd

    these have been advertising on Facebook of late, says founded in 2011, so a relatively young company id guess. That said, there does not appear to be a premises where this shop is run from , so Im guessing / assuming that its a reseller of equipment from an "eshop" and has to order and relay on a per order basis. Think I'll stick to FLO and a few other trusted sources good luck with it though, hope they come through for you

    If it was wrapped in polythene, shouldnt it be described as a Meteo-wrong !!

    EQ5 Altitude Bolt, again. Parts Suppliers?

    saw these on ebay, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Skywatcher-EQ5-Pro-mount-Upgraded-Latitude-Altitude-Adjustment-Bolts-/331079832954 I believe the EQ5 uses M8 bolts , the HEQ5 and EQ6 use M10

    Is it cloudier than it used to be?

    I agree with the contrails statement, the level of high clouds has certainly increased over the years.
