I am associated with a college who had purchased a Celestron EDGE HD14 two years ago. Due to the high humidity of the place, there has been quite a bit of fungus which has grown on both the front corretor plate and the rear coma corrector lens which is inbuilt into the central hole. If anyone would know how to disassemble the EDGE HD 14 from the front and rear end it would be very beneficial.
Getting back into astronomy after many years. Really tasted the thrill as a youngster: eg
Jupiter Saturn conj of 1981 viewed through a 4" refractor
Splitting the double on the 'tip of the sword' of Cygnus - which as I recall were red and green.
Naked eye all night sessions in Spain and New Zealand.
For the last couple of weeks I have been getting off to dark skies a few miles from where I live and using 8x32's and I have just bought some used Celestron (Echelon) 16x70's which came a couple of days ago - since which time, in accordance with the Laws of Physics, the skies have been cloudy!
I am probably going to get an Orion parallelogram tripod, but there are long waiting times - in the meantime would love to know of any advice people may have on monopods / heads and a mount that will fix to the Echelons.
