  1. Nice Image . Had a few views through the Binos of Orion when I have been out at silly am learning the night sky.
  2. Hi all. Was Hoping for a few more to report on I.E M34 poss a few double clusters. But a high thin cloud bank just rolled over . After having M31 pointed out to me through OASI's high powered Binos I thought I would try and get my own through my 20x80s. Will admit that I was looking in the wrong area for the first 10 mins, I went and got a reclining chair(better viewing position) and a quick stellarium check and went back out. Not as bright as the Binos at OASI but there she was in all her glory . Went and got the better half and tried to point it out to her but the size of the binos coupled with the cloud she called it after 4 mins. Just waiting for this cloud to pass and hopefuly can add M34 and get a a look at Orion again . Just makes the urge for a telescope even worse:icon_eek:.
  3. What they said Breathing taking image to look at.
  4. Fantastic Image Kevin love the detail:hello2:
  5. Just a quick update. I did give them a quick email to ask about the 10" model. Due to shipping/carrying charges due to its weight, they will not import anything bigger than the 8". So I will have to think a few things over esp now Iam thinking about sitting on my hands for a bit longer and maybe get a set up that allows expansion in the future. Again like many other people its all down to the budget lol.
  6. SCTs say the LX200s or Celestron Edge HD Series are slow. As stated they run at F10. But add a HyperStar and these run at about an F1.8 to an F2. But this will eat £500+(depending on size) of the budget. Thing about AP is that it just keeps increasing the budget maximum:icon_eek: As others have said get the best mount you can. Then you should know what you have left for scopes,CCD,guiding equipment etc. I personal feel its a work in progress. People start with a decent starting kit then build it as funds allow. Won't say what scope mount CCD I was looking at when I thought I had £15k incoming(locked down for a fair few yrs) but when I added up what I had chosen it had eaten around 8k and I still could of gotten more. P.S. Olly has some really good tips ideas on how to get things set up and get you going within your budget limits .
  7. Posting images like that you need not say sorry. Crisp image and I love the detail , job well done
  8. Nice clean Image. Just hope my M31 will be as good(time and money permitting:D). Interesting to see how this shapes up with more data added.
  9. What he said. Amazing image/images . (Quietly praying for that Lotto winning ticket tomorrow)
  10. Amazing, Vast, Colourful Great Image love it as you can tell. Thank you for sharing Tim.
  11. A very well written review Michael. Seems to be worth its weight in gold that app . Do you reckon this is the sort of aid the hand set from the Orion SkyQuest IntelliScope gives . One more reason to get an IPhone, but I cannot justify paying the monthly charge atm Jason.
  12. Really nice image of M31 again one of my Fav DSOs
  13. Well to my untrained eye it looks marvellous Paul.
  14. Really like this image, made better that it's an unguided effort. Keep up the good work Nadeem
  15. Really like this image. Starting to appreciate the Ha images:D. Cannot wait to see how this image evolves.
  16. Another great Image Iam just gazing at today whilst drinking a brew. Can sit here all day and look at these but the house work not getting very far also:D. Great image Vincent.
  17. Both look great esp the film Noir all four in there as well Just goes to show the optics in that Dob are good. You up size these ones or used a Barlow???????. Seen it up for sale new with a Barlow and 2 eps, which is a cracking deal on a starter scope tbh. Interesting to see how Saturn comes out. Jason
