I now want a suitable telescope to explore the sky and take photographs of images in the sky, I think the moon would be a good starting point.
I am a complete novice and I have a budget of £300/£400 to spend on a telescope, automatic tracking device, adapters and accessories. I need something that would be battery operated and not mains ...

HEQ5 Handset work a Meade LX 10?

Hi Guys

I need a handset for my Meade LX 10.

I was wondering whether my Standard HEQ5 Handset would work on the Meade LX 10?

I do not have a Dec motor on the LX 10 so it would need only to work for RA.

What do you think?

To explain, I am about to go on a photoshoot in Miami and need to plan where I can expect the sun to be at any given time. Eg sunrise is 7.24 today at x degrees, but next week at say 10am it ...

Dobsonian mount for existing OTA?

Hi all,

I have a 10" SkyWatcher OTA which I'd like to use on a dob mount. Now I know I can build one - and may still do so - but I wondered if anyone can recommend a source for the mount only?

is this possible?

Is this possible?
I took this photo yesterday through reflection of window glass using my SAMSUNG smart phone. It brings a lot of question to my mind what if we have more than one sun how the life will be looks like? Is the summer will be hotter, the day longer and more so I thought of share this with you to discussions.
SORRY I took this picture
