Hello From Ontario Canada

Hello All

I am looking forward to improved optics coming my way. I have been out of the star watching with a telescope for a while but.... I bucked up and purchased a new 180MM Maksutov from Orion and with it an Atlas go- to EQ mount. I have in the past been to a few Star fests events in Ontario with my little 4.5" Tasco Newtonian. Yes it was a Sears department store special, which I quickly modified for 1.25" eye pieces. This is what cut my teeth with astronomy before other interests got the better of me. That was ten + years ago. So I will give you a product review when I get the package.

Cheers.

Thomas

welcome to sgl, i have the 180 mak, great scope

Hello Nightfisher

I am looking forward to this new unit. Can you tell me what ocular preference you use with your 180 Mak. I have a mitt full of plossl eyepieces from 10mm to 40mm. These are all 1.25” They are of good quality as I purchased these in the early 90’s Japanese manufacture with good coatings. Is 2” the way to go?

Thanks in advance.

Thomas
