  1. Hey guys I'm an aspiring beginner astronomer and observer, and I recently inherited my grandfather's old telescope. It is a Meade Quartz with the LX Pulse drive. Only one problem, he left me with no instructions. I learned about the Barlow lens, and how it magnifies the normal eyepiece, the only problem is I have no idea how to attach it. The hole where I normally fit an eyepiece is far too large for it to fit. The size of the hole can fit a 26mm lens. Is it because I have brands mixing and it can only fit a Meade Barlow? I appreciate the help.
  2. Hi For sale: set of BST Explorer ED 25, 18, 15, 12mm and 8mm BST ED Starguider Eyepieces. I recently bought these eyepieces with a scope on SGL and they are in as new condition. They are wasted on me as I only use eyepieces for alignment before imaging. I want to sell them as a set so will not consider splitting at this stage. I would like to sell for £150 for the set. Collection preferred, but I might be able to deliver within reasonable distance by arrangement. Thanks Barry
  3. Thanks to recommendations from this forum, I recently purchased a Bresser AR-102s/600 refractor. (I apologise for the rubbish weather lately, it is obviously my fault. ) The supplied (1.25in) diagonal is very cheap, all-plastic construction. Even the barrels. And I would like to upgrade as soon as possible. This telescope accepts 2" accessories, so I want to begin by getting a decent diagonal, then upgrade eyepieces later. I had my eye on a William Optics 2" Dielectric Diagonal, but then saw an Altair Quartz Dielectric Diagonal 2" Push-fit for almost half the price. Altair also make a 2" Lightwave Premium Dielectric Diagonal, which falls roughly in the middle of the price range. I've heard very good things about the Williams Optics diagonal. My question is what are the Altair like. And is it worth spending the extra, for what is a relatively "budget" range OTA? Recommendations for 2" eypieces that I should consider are also welcome. Thanks.
  4. Is anyone able to offer some suggestions as to an eyepiece upgrade for my Heritage 130P? It came with a pretty OK 25mm eyepiece (and a less OK 10mm) and I've invested in a Celestron Omni 2 x Barlow and a Omni 15mm eyepiece. But I'm hoping to find a better quality eyepiece to replace the generic 25mm. Ideally I'd like something in the 25-20mm range - soemthing with a wide FoV for Deep Sky (mainly galaxies) observing. Thanks for your input.
  5. As a rookie stargazer, and someone that has replied heavily on this website and it's very, very helpful members, I want to take a moment to reiterate what I've been told on here over and over again.... If you're a new night sky enthusiast, I can't stress enough the difference that a quality eyepiece makes when viewing objects through the scope. If you're going to spend time outside (especially during the cold winter months), then get the most out of that time. INVEST IN GOOD, QUALITY EYEPIECES. The difference is substantial and well worth the extra paper. So thank you for all the members that pushed that notion on me, and hopefully my testimony will influence someone else to pull the trigger on a better price of glass for their scope! jon
  6. Hey SGL, So i have purchased a set of Celestron EP's with some filters and upon inspection some of the filters seem to not look overly "clean"? Several of them have what could be best described as water marks whilst another has a piece of something on the filter... Am i able to clean these at all or would it damage them? I haven't got round to checking the EP's but i would hope they are all okay! Celestron Eyepiece and Filter Kit 1.25in (Purchased from here too) If anyone has any advice on cleaning them (if possible without damaging them) or what to do that would be great I am not sure what is considered reasonable and what isn't when it comes to this sort of stuff!
  7. It's been a week since Christmas. How about some reports on new eyepieces received as gifts (or bought for yourself)? To get things started, I received a 17mm ES-92 and have had a couple of chances to use it in both a coma corrected dob and a flat field short tube refractor. It's easy to use with eyeglasses, has a very wide field of view that can be seen all at once without straining, is as sharp at the edge as a Delos (which is to say as sharp as at the center), has no discernable field curvature, and seems to have nearly constant angular magnification across the field. The weight and size do have to be managed, but it is well worth the effort. I haven't tried it without coma correction or flat field correction or with a barlow yet, so no reports on those aspects yet. I measured the AFOV to be 92 or 93 degrees as claimed using reverse projection with a flashlight shining into the field lens. Usable eye relief was measured to be 17mm using the same technique, so just a millimeter less than my measured 18mm for the 10mm Delos. Overall, I'm so stoked, I hope to get the 12mm and other focal lengths as they become available.
  8. I have no idea how this is possible, as I don't take my eyepieces with me anywhere other than outside, but I managed to "misplace" my 10mm eyepiece, which came with the telescope. This may be a blessing in disguise since I can now upgrade it to a higher quality one. That being said.... I'm taking suggestions for quality, but reasonably priced replacements. Also, I'm curious about this "Luminos" series I see form Celestron. Any thoughts/ideas about them? Are they overpriced, or worth it? If they're worth it, why? Thank You, Jon
  9. Hi all, I'm looking at buying a Skyliner 200p scope second-hand, but it doesn't included a mount or eyepieces. Is it possible to: - Pair this scope with reasonably a priced mount (<£100) or even a tripod used for birdwatching (do you need a specific mount for this scope?) - Get an OK set of eyepieces (<£50) used for seeing planets and some beginner DSO. - Advise me on a telescope mount and eyepieces compatible with the Skyliner 200p for the prices stated above. The reason i'm asking is because my funds are limited ATM, so i'd like to buy a decent telescope with the intention of upgrading its accessories as funds permit and my astronomical knowledge advances. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  10. So I have recently just gotten the Saxon 200mm reflecting telescope, and with it I received an erecting eyepeice to view terestial objects. Problem is, people are saying to insert into threads and I've tried to do that but it doesn't fit? How do I correctly place the erecting eyepiece onto the telescope? Please help! Images of regular eyepeice for space objects (28mm) and other parts included to help.
  11. Hi all I am putting together an oil-bath auto-collimator rig to check over my reflectors. It occurred to me to use an off-axis guider body and its pick-off prism to feed the light source in - no heath robinson pipe assembling. Then I can just use a positive eyepiece where the camera should go to examine the ronchi lines to estimate the optics quality. This raises the question - I would need to put the ronchi screen on the telescope side of the prism - say in a filter mount . Is this too far from the source ? Is the source to ronchi screen distance important ? Cheers Mike
  12. Hey, whenever I clean my eyepieces or filters, theres always a mark left from the cleaning tissue. What am I doing wrong or is this normal? Also, Im using optical grade tissue paper. Is it better to use a microfiber cloth? Thanks for the advice.
  13. Hi all, For the first time in my life i have bought a telescope(celestron astromaster 130eq)..So iam very intrested in seeing my favourite orion nebulae , How can i get a closer image of it like shown in many pictures..Is it possible to see very closer from this telescope and how the color comes? is the color of nebulae is fake or real? What eyepiece can i use to see the distant deepsky objects very close and clearly... Thank u....
  14. I have been looking at the Stargazer's Stellarscope (link below) sold by 'The Original Gift Company' but it has no reviews... does anyone know anything about it. Such as, is it any good, etc? TIA http://www.theoriginalgift.co.uk/ogc/stargazers-stellarscope-1985040?cm_mmc=pla-_-google-_-shopping-_-1985040&gclid=CjwKEAjwtNbABRCsqO7J0_uJxWYSJAAiVo5LiED0BjlY7M5vWICO8ueswaRv2KQXOw3oOjvbUjZINxoC7wXw_wcB
  15. Hi, I recently bought an orion XT8 dobsonian (focal length: 1200, f ratio: 5.9). It came with a 25mm plossl and I bought an 11mm 82 degree explore scientific, mainly for use on small deep sky objects. I am looking to buy a planetary eyepiece. I really enjoy using the ES eyepiece so was considering buying either the 6.7mm or 4.7mm ones. The 6.7 doesn't seem to offer enough magnification and its focal length seems too close to my 11mm but if I bought the 4.7mm, I'd worry about its performance (someone told me that using an eyepiece with a focal length near the focal ratio of the telescope was a bad idea). Thank you. Ben
  16. Hi there, anybody got a 22mm T4 for sale. After a little research for a mid to long FL ultra wide that I can wear with glasses, I've decide on the Nagler 22mm T4. Hopefully someone has one in their eyepiece case feeling deserted and usurped by its cousin the Ethos. Good home waiting to lavish said eyepiece with all the attention it will ever need; subject to the vagaries of British weather of course :-)
  17. Hi there I am searching for an eyepiece in the 82 degree AFOV arena suitable for eyeglass wearers. I have astigmatism (Left -3.25, Right -2.25) left eye is dominant. I really like the look of the 26mm Nagler T5, however it's listed as 16mm eye relief, and I have some concerns that this might not be sufficient ER for my use. Anybody out there ever used the 26mmT5 with eye glasses? If the T5 isn't going to do the job, can someone recommend a suitable alternative? I already have the Televue 32mm Plossl and had thought about the 31mm Nagler T5 as a potential replacement, however the 32mm is a recent purchase and I would prefer to hold on to it for a while yet. Telescope is an 8" EdgeHD. Kind Regards Paul J.
  18. I've had a zoom EP on my radar for a while now, ease of use and more time actually observing is important to me. So when a second hand Pentax came up on SGL no less and at a very affordable price I couldn't resist. Specifications I will use the first light optics link so you can read up on it a bit more here's the link: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/pentax/pentax-xl-8-24mm-zoom.html First impressions What can I say it's certainly a big eyepiece but not as heavy as I thought it would be. It feels solid and just oozes quality, nothing in the design of the EP has been compromised or overlooked. When I first turned the EP so the ER went from the least to full extent it felt so smooth I smiled to myself same for the magnification which felt almost as smooth very reassuring. First session Telescope - Celeston Nexstar 6SE I setup for my session same way I always do no changes what so ever on how I position the tube on my stand. I did use a higher mag then what I usually do around the 17mm mark rather then 25mm and honestly I've never had more accurate alignment. When putting the eyepiece in the diagonal I was very careful to tighten the pins enough and make sure the line which shows what mag it's at was facing up. So onto my targets first up was Saturn, really good detail on the rings I could definitely see different shades of colour and the rings were simply breathtaking. I could make out 2 of the moons fairly easily but my attention was mainly focused on the planet. Conditons allowed me to go up to around 10mm anymore and the degradation was apparent immediately this did improve later on in the night. The Pentax was extremely forgiving on we're I positioned my eye I did use the ER to the max setting. Comfort was immediately apparent, no blackouts or any sort of trouble finding my correct eye position. I did try observing with my glasses on but I've never been comfortable with wearing my glasses during observations. I think you could definitely use this EP with glasses on but not for me. Next on my list was the moon I added my moon filter and started at 24mm. The moon had a very detailed cool look about it, the craters and mountain ranges along the terminator were almost 3D it was stunning. What I also found within the first 20 minutes of observing was the zoom mechanism was very easy to use almost intuitive along with focusing as your increasing mag it all seemed very natural. I also popped in my 2x Barlow just to see if I could, I managed to get up to 12mm which would be around 6mm with the Barlow and the views were still pin sharp, it was like I was on a mission to the moon incredible. For my last observations of the night I chose M13/M52. M13 was stunning as always but what became more apparent was the crisp and detailed view of the stars and surrounding star field. I was able to identify a lot more then a low/med/high intensity of brightness for each star. I tried to portray this in my observational sketch and the actual cluster I've never seen it so prominent or big as it was at 17.5mm. M52 this was my first observation of this stunning open cluster. Immediately apparent again was all the stars were pinpoint and sharp throughout. I kept my mag at 24mm and for the first time felt a bit constricted with the 40 degree field of view but what made up for it was the detail and contrast sharp across the field and a lovely dark background stunning. Conclusion I was going to do a pros/cons section but I soon realised I don't have enough cons. As far as I can tell there's 2 cons price and fov. If I'm honest the price is justified 1 EP which is magically 7 and fov I believe is personal taste to an extent. Fov was only an issue for me at 24mm when observing an open cluster and to be honest I expected this. What was apparent through out was how easy it all was, how clear crisp and detailed everything was. The zoom mechanism adjusting your focus all went hand in hand. The comfort factor was huge not once was I frustrated with eye position or reflecting light artificial or natural/moon. So I'm very happy with my purchase, honestly I can't see why everyone hasn't got a zoom? Here are a few pics of the Pentax for your viewing pleasure. Thank you for reading my review. Clear skies ✨💫🌙🎨🔭 Richard
  19. I am the happy owner of an ES 82 degree 18 mm eyepiece that I use together with a Baader MPCC coma corrector on my SW 200 mm f/5 Newtonian. Until now I have been using the CC directly attached to the filter thread of the eyepiece, which I know is not correct. I now wish to buy the corresponding spacers so to be able to use the optical system correctly, but this is seemingly more difficult than I first supposed. According to the CC specifications, the distance between the flat surface and the focal plane (camera or eyepiece) should be 55 mm. I have verified this when using the CC photographically and that worked fine. If one removes the T-2 adapter and uses the M48 thread instead, as I do for use with the eyepiece, this distance becomes 57.5 mm. Thanks to this table in a post in Cloudy Nights I was able to figure out that I need a spacing of 32.5 mm between the coma corrector and the eyepiece. The post includes some references to spacers, but aside from the Baader ones (28 and 14 mm, see here) I am having trouble to find suitable spacers in European retailers that would add up to 32.5 mm. This is why I would like to ask you for help. Has anyone solved this problem before? If so, how? Where can I buy spacers suitable for adding 4.5 mm optical path to a system with 2", M48 threads? Thanks in advance and clear skies!
  20. Hi I finally bought my first telescope last week; a SkyWatcher Skymax 127 with EQ3-2 mount and I am enjoying it so far. After doing a lot of reading and searching for answers to my many questions (many of which were answered by SGL), I find I have more questions than I started with! It's amazing how the more you know, the more you realise you don't know. At the moment I am concentrating on my next eyepiece to avoid information overload. I have been using the kit 25mm eyepiece that came with the scope and have been enjoying the pin-point stars. It seems like an OK eyepiece. I'm sure once my eyes are better 'trained' and I've had the privilege of viewing through higher-end eyepieces I will understand the limitations of that eyepiece but for now it seems fine so I have decided to supplement my eyepieces rather than replacing the existing ones. I have a BST explorer ED 12mm already and am now looking to add a 32mm. Now, I understand that my scope is slow at f/11.8. As it is slow, am I right in thinking a simpler lens design such as a Plossl is better for more light transmission or would a well made more complex design be ok if it is well made? With a small, slow scope like this would I notice the difference between a modestly priced lens such as the Celestron Omni 32mm Plossl and a more expensive 32mm? Is the difference between eyepieces on this scope worth spending the extra pounds or is it a case of diminishing returns? Is the infamous Televue 32mm Plossl noticeably better even on a Skymax 127 (I might have to consider saving my pennies if it is)? After looking around, these are the ~32mm EPs I can find within my budget. The Panaview is stretching it a bit and it is also a 2" but I would consider it if the difference is worth the extra. I am leaning toward the Vixen 30mm (or would the 40mm be better?). I know there is an element of personal preference but I could do with a little guidance to get me started in the right direction. Revelation Plossl - https://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/Revelation_32.0mm_Plossl_Eyepiece_1.25_.html Celestron Omni - http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-celestron-32mm-omni-series-plossl-eyepiece/p1528190 Vixen NPL - https://www.firstlightoptics.com/vixen-eyepieces/vixen-npl-eyepieces.html Of course, please feel free to recommend any other EPs you feel may be more suitable I should mention that I wear glasses and can't view without them due to a rather impressive astigmatism that would turn all stars into doubles! Apologies for the many questions and many thanks for any help you can offer. Carolyn
  21. Hello I have recently bought an Orion XT8 dobsonian (f/5.9, focal length 1200mm) which comes with a 25mm Orion Sirius Plossl (AFOV 52°). At the moment, this is my only eyepiece. I need advice on which eyepiece(s) to buy for both planetary and deep sky observing. Because my budget is only about £150 (~200$) and I would like to buy a high quality eyepiece which I can continue using as I get more experience and better equipment, I thought it would make sense if I only bought one eyepiece, preferably with a low enough focal length for some planetary observing but a high enough one for smaller deep sky objects. I know this is slightly unrealistic but for the time being I don't mind being able to see very little detail on Jupiter/Saturn and Mars as a very small red dot. I was considering buying a Baader Hyperion 8-24mm zoom, but the low field of view at 24mm (50°) put me off slightly as it renders the eyepiece useless for me at that focal length (as I already have the 25mm plossl). The ES82 series seems like a good option and I was considering getting the 8.8mm or the 6.7mm. Thank you, Ben
  22. Hi guys, I have a Skywatcher Heritage 130p and I am looking for an upgrade to /additional eyepieces, mainly for planetary and lunar viewing. At the moment I have my eye on 2 eyepieces - a 6mm66º uwa 'gold line' eyepiece for about £20-30, and an 18mm Baader ortho eyepiece for £50 ish. However, I have recently come across the Celestron eyepiece kit for about the same price (maybe slightly more, but not much) as the 2 eyepieces previously mentioned eyepieces put together. What is the quality of the celestron eyepieces compared to the baader? I've heard that the baader is a good quality eyepiece and one that I wouldn't really have to upgrade in the future. On the other hand, the celestron offers many eyepieces, a barlow and some filters for a great value, but obviously if they are poor quality it may not necessarily be better. I currently only have the 'super' 25mm and 10mm stock eyepieces supplied, and live in the light polluted area of north London. Any other suggestions would be great as well, thanks Dan
  23. Hi everyone! My telescope came with 2 eyepieces, a super 25mm and a super 10mm. The other day I was looking at the moon (using my super 25mm and a x2 Barlow as always) and I decided to swap round my super 25mm to my super 10mm and it was a much better image! I could see right into the surface and view the craters inside the craters! Can someone please explain why the smaller diameter eyepiece works better? Thanks
  24. Hi everyone, I am just starting to use my canon 1200D with my telescope using a t-ring and ofcourse want more magnification but i want a set of barlow lenses not just say 2x or 3x, so i hit ebay looking for cheap but sort of ok quality ones, I came across datyson ones for under £10 which on at least one site have good reviews but obviously i am not going to take the word of a site i dont know that sell thems word for it so I figured i would ask here, if anyone has tried these and can give a honest assessment of them it is the members on this site
  25. Hey guys, I recently purchased the Orion XT6 and I've been very pleased thus far. I've been using a 25mm eyepiece, and was slightly disappointed. I'm very new and didn't realize all the technical stuff about eyepieces. I'm very much into viewing things like the planets, not as much deep space. (Jupiter and Saturn especially) So, that being said, should I get a 10mm, a x2 Barlow or should I just get something else? I'm really looking forward to seeing your suggestions! (If you have any photos of Jupiter or the planets using one of the eyepieces with no added zoom from the camera, etc that would also be great) cheers, Tom
