Moonfish and revelation eyepieces

Hi all

I know the 30mm ultrawide 2" ep got rave reviews from s@n, but how do their 1.25" ep's fare? anyone tried them out? How do they fare with the more expensive ep's

Also since I got a 10" revelation dob, I've found someone selling revelation ep 1.25" set. Does anyone know if they're any good?


Also if you know of any good offers on ep's please post :)

CCD or astro digital SLR?

I have been thinking about moving on to a Starlightexpress, possibly the SXV M8 C although I still need to educate my self in these things. I was sticking to CCD technology because I always hear that digital SLRs can't handle long exposures with out creating loads of noise. Now I have just found this Canon 20DA astro digital SLR. What do you think of this? How would it compare to the SXV M8 C? ...

How did you choose your 2nd scope?

Hi all,

As the owner of a 6" Newtonian, and now thinking of upgrading to a guided scope, I'd be interested to hear of the decision-making process you took in the choice of your second scope.

What was the biggest difference , viewing wise, between your 2 scopes.

Do you feel you made the right choice?

If it is a guided scope, how reliable/accurate is the scope after months of use?

Hope some of you ...

advive please

I am considering buying my first scope and admit to being a novice.
Believe it or not my local Lidl supermarket is advertising this. A Bresser Skylux 70mm refractor, 700mm focal length with tripod, eyepieces etc. This is £50.
Will it be any use at all for planetary observation?
I would appreciate any comments, Peter

Updating telescope, Help please!

I so far have a celestron 4.5" and a meade etx 90 GOTO but am looking to update to the 10" Dobsonian sky watcher. Would this give me good views of planets and nebulas? as i want to view more.

I have a budget of £500, what would be best to get, or should i stick to getting the 10"?

Thank you!

Start up astronomer seeks guidance

I've been interested in stars and planets for years but only since 'Sky At Night' magazine came on the shelves have I a/ been able to learn more about astronomy without needing a degree and b/ given serious thought to purchasing a telescope so that I can take a proper look at what's out there.

With a start-up budget of £200 or less if possible, what would more experienced astronomers recommend as a first decent ...
