Purchased this hood from R-Sky a few weeks ago because I felt my hoodie wasn't sufficient for the job and at £29 I thought it was money well spent.

How right I was, the hood easily blocks out all light and allows me to observe with both eyes open the quality of the material is excellent very well made.

It has 3 buttons for different sizes and also keeps you warm as a added bonus.

You can also purchase the solar hood which would be also high quality.

In conclusion if your tired of neighbours lights or reflections of your scope or just want to observe with both eyes open then you can do a lot worse.

Clear skies ?✨???

Mine arrived this morning. Looks great. My wife says it really suits me and brings out my eyes...

Mine arrived today, after a completely hassle-free ordering experience. I'm old and silly. And it's getting worse by the day. But perhaps some of you are also of an age that you remember a

I'm currently using the towel and eyepatch method ;) Have thought about buying a proper observing hood though. Does it get in the way if you stop to look up or change eyepieces etc?

You put the hood around your neck and even with my glasses around the same area it's not a problem.

Heres the site I bought it from-

Richard, great its worked for you.
Even better you have posted a review.

So buying and postage from Russia was not a problem for you?

27 Euros or £24 is indeed good value in my book, so much so I have ordered one straight away.

After seeing this I,m going to have a root around for my old snorkel coat,does anyone one remember these?Not only were they very warm and kept you dry but the hood protruded 2 inches in front of your nose not so good for crossing the road but might be great at the ep.

I've used a black observing hood for years, for night time use and solar and wouldn't be without it.  To be more accurate, mine is an observing 'rectangle'.  It does tend to slip off me though even though it's fairly large, as one side is quite shinny and seems to slip out of position quite easily.  This looks like a far more secure option.  I'll have to give is some thought as pennies are short at the moment.

Richard, can you tell me if they accept  credit card payments?  I'm thinking of how a customer might get a refund if the item didn't arrive safely otherwise.  Thanks.

I ordered one this afternoon - Received an email showing my order, then about an hour later I received another email with paypal details on it. I'm happy with this...... With Paypal it's secure enough for a punt :)

Many thanks Sara - I use PayPal and was wandering if I'd be able to use it.  Thanks again.

......Perhaps Roman might wonder why the sudden increase of orders from the UK :icon_biggrin:

Roman asked for a link to the thread where I told him I'd heard about the hood :)

Yeah I used PayPal to no issues at all and arrived well packaged in about a week ?

Ordered one but can't see how the payment works, received two emails one mentioning PPal wallet with an email address but no payment details.

He will be pleased with all the orders no doubt there, it is a great product and a good price ?

I was asked to do a review when I first used the hood but I wanted to get a couple of sessions under my belt with it first ?

You log into paypal having copied the e-mail address listed in the payment e-mail.
You pay for business and services.
Need to work out the sterling to euros to ensure Roman gets his correct payment.

      Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well! I just wanted to ask if anyone had any ideas for projects to do, as the sky is clearing up and i wanted to make the most of it. Anything, maybe finding or tracking a certain celestial object or mapping the moon! I'll leave it up to you!😊

      Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well! I recently joined this forum for the express purpose of answering this question: Why does Mars look like a simple star through my telescope? I have a Starsense Explorer LT 80AZ refractor with a 10mm, 25mm and 2x Barlow lens, and my telescope has a max magnification of 189x! So why is it, on a pretty clear winters night, that the mighty Mars, the Red Planet , looks like a humble star. I love stars (who the hell doesn't) but i rather hoped to see a planet. What am i doing wrong? AM i doing something wrong or is my telescope inadequate (i doubt it though). I use the 10mm plus the Barlow, and still nothing. Is this just how Mars looks through a telescope like mine? Or maybe i'm not looking at Mars at all. Although, according to my research, the Red Planet currently resides in the constellation of Aries. Correct? Please. please answer my question as it is driving me up the wall. Plus, if anyone has the time, could someone recommend a good astronomy app, other than the starsense one, that you can just point at the sky? Thank you so much for reading this. Have a lovely day.

      Hi, I got a skywatcher classic 200p just before xmas and I havnt done much planet viewing due to not having more than a 10mm eyepiece for magnification. I recently got a 2x barlow lens and tried viewing last night with a barlow and 10mm lens and it came out very blurry and I couldn't see any detail and it still seemed quite small. I was viewing on a close night when there was a break in the clouds so may have not been the best conditions. Any tips for how much magnification I need and how to see it better. Thanks.

      Hello, 
      I've been into astronomy since I was young and more recently astrophotography. I've just (finally) got my new telescope, a Celestron AVX 9.25" Edge HD with various accessories including a reducer lens. I'm still trying to get the auto guider up and running as that's being a pain and need to get a dew heater for the telescope (currently lookjng for a decent one). I'm also looking into what filters to get as well as that's still fairly new to me, at least for the astrophotography side. 
      I'm also very much into microscopy and looking at microphotography, I'm currently saving up to get a new microscope. 
      I've also got a facebook group where I share astronomy and science news, where members can share astronomy and science news or their own astro or science images, discuss things, etc. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2494142714158646/?ref=share
      Anyway, hello to all from Cambridge, UK :-)

      Hi everyone,
      I really want to get out and do some observing- it's been a long summer! 
      Does anyone know of anywhere near Glasgow that you can get to by public transport that's ok for observing.
      I'm not looking for super dark skies- I just want to do something.
      I don't drive so mugdock, campsies etc are out of the question. Kelvingrove has been ruined by that glasglow event every winter. 
       
      Thanks for any help!
