  2. Hi All , Does anyone have one of these filters in their kit and , if so , how do you find them ? Would they perform better on a SW 130P rather than on a Meade 90mm `frac ?
  3. With the 2 Baader filters , Continuum and Polarising , that brings the price of the Lunt Solar Wedge up to about £250 - is it worth it at this point of the Solar cycle ?
  4. Does anyone test their eye pieces using artificial stars, either home made, or commercial such as the Astrozap? One way of testing optics when there are no stars, and when out and about maybe. I presume astigmatism and lens edge performance would be shown up.
  5. For Sale: Two 11 inch Astrozap Dew Heater Tapes I have a two 11 inch heater tapes for sale, they were used on my CPC1100 and are working fine. (one remaining, other sold to Kevin) See: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dew-prevention/astrozap-dew-heater-tapes.html NOW SOLD!
  6. Hello everyone, second big night out with the scope and wasnt a bad one at that. The moon was at 98% full so bright as a spotlight on my now "claimed" dark sky spot out in the sticks around fife. Didnt see anything but the brightest stars but Jupitar, Mars and Saturn were still there shining bright as always to much enjoyment. The moon however was spectacular. I found that the moon filter was taking alot of the detail away and hiding alot in shadows so opted to use a 90° angle mirror and a barlow coupled with a 20mm lens to give a duller picture and it was fantastic! Got a quick pic on my phone looking through the lens. Dew wasnt a problem this time thanks to my new astrozap heat strip. Works very well - too well actually. Anyone have any hints on how to get the optimum temp on it as i was fiddling around with it abd no matter where i had the adjuster set i keep getting whats looks like thermal currents within the scope/dew shield distorting the picture occasionally. Any help negating this would be good but although it did stave off the dew completely. Also on that note my main optic on the front of my refractor is very dirty from the last dew build up ... how do i go about cleaning it cause ive heard mixed opinions on cleaning the main apeture.
