    Not what you’d expect at Telescope House

    Weird Maybe their site has been hacked and someone placed it there.
  2. Amazing detail, simply stunning.
  3. Very nice read Richard really enjoyed it. Great scope and it looks well built.
  4. Couldn't agree more on the power of 3.

    How do amateur astronomers make money?

    As Gina says amateurs do not make money, if you want an income from it you either get a degree and a PHD and become a professor or if you are good with your hands make telescopes, mounts etc and sell them.
  6. This is my version. I call it the RocketMount as it looks like a rocket, original I know. And here is a video of it working, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vChMQ2Q8Q30&feature=youtu.be

    Clave 1.25" eyepieces wanted

    I need the following Clave eyepieces to finish my collection. They need to be 1.25" and generation 3 made approx 1982. These are pre Kinoptic and do not have filter threads. 3mm 5mm 30mm 35mm 45mm 55mm They do make a 65mm and 75mm but I don't think I would ever use these. Also any Clave eye caps and filters Thanks in advance

    It looks lovely Neil. I for one would be interested in a build thread as it's something I should be able to manage with the kit I have. As for the mistakes, only you know where they are, that's the beauty of making your own stuff.
  9. I would love to try these but at 3500 euros they are tad to rich for me.
  10. Very impressive N3ptune
  11. Looks good John, a very elegent set up

    Just getting started!!

    Buy the book "Turn left at Orion" it's a must for any one new to the hobby. It will give you all the easy targets your scope will be able to see, and step by step guides of how to find the objects.
  13. Well done Matteo. It took me many years to finally get it. It's really really hard so congratz.
