Hi guys, its me kronos, and i am about to purchase a new a new filter for my 5” and 8” scopes. I cant decide wether to buy a UHC or an oiii filter.
my budget it 70euros max
And i have settled between the uhc explore scientific
or the oiii explore scientific.
i am open to other suggestions in this price range
i am keen to observing more deep sky objects with better detail
Whichever filter i wont buy now, i will buy a better one in the future(for example if i dont buy the uhc , i will buy an astronomic uhc in the future)
So far i have loved the views of m42 (i have observed many more objects)and now thats its fading into the suns glare, i m starting to find more and more objects.Hoping to observe the veil and the lagoon nebula as long as some planetaries and definetly globulars(which i ve heard that they dont take filters(am i correct?). I ve heard that the oiii enhances contrast and dims the object, but is the dimming worth the additional contrast from the uhc?
i havent yet observed my first planetary , but i am planning to soon.I m really excited to see one!
I will make another thread similar to this then,asking questions that may arise and reach a conclusion.
I wrote this thread to ask about your preferences with filters(oiii or uhc) and for advice on what i should buy according to the objects i want to view)
thanks, any advice will be useful.
I am looking at buying one of these, and need some guidance.
Celestron Nexstar 4 SE
Sky-Watcher Explorer-130P Synscan AZ GOTO
Celestron Nexstar 127 SLT MAK
I ended up With these 3 Choices mostly because of the cost I am willing to do the first time, and it seems like they have some abilities (motorized with GoTo-options)
Priority 1: I want to observe nebulas, and galaxies (i.e. Andromeda) on a decent "zoom" and focus.
Priority 2: I want to do astrophotography.
I've read elsewhere on the forum than its preferable to have an equatorial mount for astrophotography. As far as i can see none of the above have that, even if Celestron Nexstar 4SE is promoting astrophotography on the product info. Or have i misunderstood here and one of the above has an equatorial mount?
The Product info on the Celestron Nexstar 4 SE says it has Alt-Az, EQ North & EQ South. Does this mean it has both options, az-al and equatorial mount?.
I think should add that i consider myself at least an "above beginner"-photographer, and Photoshop user. I use NIKON D810 - is this even mountable on one of the telescopes mentioned here?
I also have the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer mini. Can i setup one of the telescopes mentioned with this and call it a telescope with equatorial mount?
I guess some of these questions might seem stupid to you, but I just dont know alot regarding telescopes yet:)
Thanks in advance for any replies.

These are compatible with Canon 5D / 6D, etc, here are the links for details on these filters:
The Tadpole Nebula and the Flaming Star Nebula captured over three nights of the unexpected nice weather we had a couple of weeks ago.
A number of firsts with this image:
1. My first mosaic - keeping it simple with two panes!
2. First time I left my imaging rig outside... (I used a telegizmo cover) and it was perfect, allowing me to get imaging very quickly on each night
3. First time using powerful scripting tools in my capture software, APT, to move to the second pane and starting imaging automatically...worked really well!
APP was used for pre-processing and stitching the mosaic together, while Pixinsight was used for image processing. A total of 10.9 hours integration time.

Thanks for looking!
For sale is my Daystar Quark, Chromosphere version. It has had infrequent use and I can't justify keeping it. Works superbly with my ED80. It was purchased in July 2017 from Widescreen Centre so is still well within the 5 year warranty period. I am looking for £625 posted to a UK mainland address. Everything is complete in the box including instructions, USB cable and power adaptor. Payment by bank transfer please.
