My forlorn dobs set up and ready for another night of poor transparency.........


Recommended Posts

Here's my big dob (12" f5.3 OOUK) and my planetary dob (6" f11 on a home made Equatorial Platform) ready to start another night's observing. Even though the conditions are rubbish, I managed decent views of Saturn, a few doubles and some of the brighter objects like M13 etc.

At least they look nice.......:) (and the blummin' patio needs jetwashing!).

Hi. Nice set of scopes you have there. Think you may be down the road from me in Stockport. I'm in Stalyvegas ?!?!


Cheers John, I am indeed!

Wow that's a beast , wouldn't look out of place in Libya lol

:) you scud be right.

Laurel and Hardy look great there Shane :eek:

unfortunately, I am more the Hardy than the Laurel myself these days. the 6" is a right spindly tube but great on planets and lunar.

Looks like a champion set up! :icon_salut:

I'm like you, I enjoy my patio in the dark, then no one notices that it hasn't been swept in awhile!


cheers Dan

I totally agree. Unfortunately, my wife likes sitting on ours in the evenings and weekends :mad:

I've given up jetwashing the patio. It looks just as bad again within weeks.

true true. I only do mine once a year though so not too bad. :(

Ye Shane for get the patio!, we are only interested in the scopes :BangHead:

that 12" Orion looks huge, must give you some great views :p

I do love the 12" dob. It would definitely be the last to go if I had to sell up. Must get out to dark sites more often now I know after my brief stay at SGL6 that I can get all my gear in the car.

Awesome setup Shane :(

cheers Kris. it's always nice to have options.
