Problems with coverdisk

Does anyone share my problems with the coverdisk? When I view certain Bonus Features (mostly films) the wrong one is shown. No amount of restarting or reloading will solve this. I am therefore stuck only to view certain videos.

Finder scope

I've got a Meade ETX-70AT and I would really like a finder scope to go with it, (for those nights when the Autostar and I don't see eye to eye!)

Celestron LPR Binoculars ?


Anyone out there who uses Celestron LPR binoculars? The write-ups seem to be spit, on the one hand they do an excellent job of cutting light pollution and enhancing the views of certain nebula. Others say that the BAK 7 prisms are not as good as the BAK 4's and the overall quality is not good.
