Hi from North Staffordshire

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm from North Staffordshire, England and I'm secretary of the North Staffordshire Astronomical Society.

I have several scopes including a 10 inch cassegrain, a TAL 2M, ETX 90 and a Skywatcher 120 refractor.

Most of them I use on a EQ6 pro mount, but not all at the same time!

Stumbled across this forum by accident and signed up straight away as it looks a very interesting place :icon_scratch:

I do a little astro photography with my Canon 50d.

Hi Puma, Welcome to the forum. I don't suppose your 120 refractor is an Evostar is it? I just bought one (yet to arrive) and would be interested in hearing anything about them. Cheers. CW

Hi Puma and welcome to the forum. Nice collection of scopes you have there and it is a shame that you can't put all of those scopes on at the same time!:icon_scratch::D

Mine is the Startravel 120 , the short tube version. I like it, especially for widefield viewing.

Ok, thanks, the Evostar is tle longer version, so probably better for planets & moon, but will probably get a 32mm lens and give some DSO's a try as well!
