Hello from New Jersey!

Hi all,
I am a retired astronomy teacher (high school and college levels, including operating the planetarium of the university I worked for) and a lifetime astronomy buff. I am hoping to see the total solar eclipse visible across much of the USA on August 21, something I have waited my entire life to see. I'm flying to friends in Rapid City, SD and we're driving south to Nebraska and putting ourselves in the town ...

Camera lens or an apo refractor?

The new Sigma 100-400mm f5-6.3 looks interesting and has received excellent reviews. It's currently retailing for £799. I figure you could get a 2.5" triplet apo refractor for the money. The lens of course offers autofocus and stabilisation on top of the variable focal length. But the refractor would have better contrast for astronomy work.

Thoughts? (I've already got a 66mm doublet refractor.)

where to locate the Barlow?

I lost my post !

Starting again
I have bought a refractor to replace my not good 6" Newtonian.
The scope has a 2" focuser, and I ordered a 2" diagonal and a 2" Barlow.
What order do it place the diagonal and Barlow?

Focuser > Barlow > diagonal > eyepiece
Focuser > diagonal > Barlow > eyepiece

The Barlow came with 2" to 1.25" adaptor, so I can use either 2" or 1.25" ...

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this

Equipment Envy

We've all been there! We see a photo online or in a magazine that was taken with a 999mm APO and a multi zillion, billion, quintillion terapixel camera. We think that if we just got a higher-paid job or won the lottery, we could get the gear and take pictures like that ourselves.

Apart from the fact that there might actually be some skill required, the fact is that most of us have to work, ...

A good starter scope ready for imaging ?


I am very new to astronomy and I'm looking for a scope and mount that is good starter to general viewing but I can use for astrophotography later. I recently went to a local club and had a look through a few different scopes. I was going to get a 8 or 10" dob but, one they are quite big to store and transport and I would need to collimate it so I think ...
