Peak Star Party 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Unfortunately I won't be able to bring my telescopes but I'll bring my lovely eyepieces including ES 14mm 100deg, ES 30mm & 8.8mm 82deg as well as my WO binoviewer. So you all welcome to use them.

I think eyepieces are the top of my purchase list this year unless someone has a solar scope for sale lol.... Do want a solar filter for mine but not sure if any will be on sale or not :-)

Aha well I would like a proper one this time as I do have a home made one for the 10'' . My other half is thinking of buying me some bino viewers for Xmas so need to decide what eyepieces would be best for me :-)

others may disagree but the two things that transformed my ability to find anything quickly were a red dot finder (Itelrad) and a RACI finder. it's such a wonderful combination that it's almost cheating :grin:

Telrads work so well on a newt, i am so glad i got mine, even better when i looked through it the right way round :Envy:

Sounds good, want the best I can get but not over £100 each... Not rich enough yet lol

if you are OK with eye relief, in my opinion the best you can get at all are the TV plossls. try a couple at PSP and see what you think the only thing they lose to anything is eye relief to some extent, weight and price (i.e. they are lighter and cheaper than anything else nearly as good). for about £50 each used......what more can you say.

The distance between your eye  and the lens  if you wear glasses you need good eye relief i.e more distance.

I think the 25mm is a great eye piece but some don't rate it? It's much easier with eye placement than the tv delos I have
