With respect folks, we have a section for members equipment photos - I'm not sure it's a great idea to start another one !.

I'll copy this thread into that section and leave a link here. Hope thats OK :smiley:

Here's mine, excuse the mess, ahem, I was, er, in the middle of something..... Barry

It'd be really helpful if someone somewhere put up a picture of a 16" dob, a 14" dob, a 12" dob, a 10" dob, an 8" dob and finally a 6" dob and then put a man and a can of beans in the photo for scale.

I'm sure such a person exists, but his/ her partner will have long since gone! Barry

Good lord badgerchap that 300P is a monster! Is the NEQ6 up to the job? Have you tried imaging with it?

Hi Dave,

Surprisingly the NEQ6 seems to manage quite well, although I must admit I was fairly shocked! Have had a dabble in imaging but a collimation issue prevents me from showing off the results :) Not too bad tracking wise though, I'll post something when these pesky clouds shift :)

Thanks badgerchap.

I'm sort-of investigating possible longer FL imaging rigs (For the long term) and have the 300 PDS on the list along with the 190 MN. Both of which would, of course, require a mount upgrade.

By the time I'm ready for either I would guess the EQ8 will be released.

If I'm honest I'd much rather have a smaller maksutov or Schmidt, but then the 300P is on semipermanent loan so wins on price! It's a bit of a behemoth though, so I might have to save some pennies for a nice C11 :)
