33 doubles in Lyra

Recommended Posts

Mikea, ive had real problems splitting epsilon lyra with the 300 but easily resolved almost 100% of the time with the 120 so i usually use the 120. The added bonus is that its on a motorised eq3-2 mount. I think that the 300 is too good sometimes especially if the seeing isnt brilliant, i have split epsilon lyra with my dob but seeing was exceptional at the time... Im into sketching too which makes the 120 a clear winner. Hope this helps?

Am surprised at the above. Do any other skyliner owners find it difficult ? Thought it had good optics. I dont have any problems with my imperfect mirror.

I have a smallish 63mm secondary (21% obstruction when aperture reduced to 300mm), perhaps this helps a lot.

Do you mean you don't see black sky between the components ?
