Eyepieces for WO Binoviewer

Hi Guys

Having just acquired a secondhand WO Binoviewer complete with 2off 20mm WA eyepieces I was wondering whether to purchase a 2nd Skywatcher 32mm SP Plossl eyepiece to give me a larger FOV and less magnification. (I already own one of the 32mm eyepieces)

Has anyone used 32mm eyepieces in a binoviewer with an SCT , if so , what are your opinions ?

Skywatcher Heritage 130P eyepieces.

I've just bought a Heritage 130P.

This was bought to a budget as a first scope to see if I enjoyed the hobby.

I've used it a couple of times and really got on with it. However I've read that better quality lenses would enhance it greatly.

I have no idea what lenses/makes to buy. Can you give me any recommendations?

Major Dew Problem on SCT Corrector Plate

Hi Guys

I have had my Meade LX10 OTA out this evening since 6pm.

I had my dew shield secured.

Just been out to do some observing at 9.45pm and the corrector plate is totally dewed up!!

I have only had this OTA a few weeks and this was my first real observing session.

Is it that this evening is particularly bad ?

Do any of you have this problem ?

Calendar as Wallpaper


Couldn't find any similar post on this subject. But then again I never find the search facilities on forums of very much help.

Anyway. Is there a possibility of providing the Calendar in electronic format? either as just image files or as an auto changing wallpaper. I use two monitors so it would be nice if you can have the MONTH on the primary display and the IMAGE on the secondary monitor (or vice ...

Hi from North Wales

Hi my name is Trish and I have just started looking at the skies. My husband bought me a second hand, only used once, Sky Watcher AZ127 for Christmas. I've managed to look at the moon several times and my oldest grandson who is 6 looked at the moon last night using the lunar filter. Wow he was very excited.
