Lunar Imapct Flashes

Hey there fellow amateur astronomers,

I'm currently doing a project on lunar impact flashes and will be taking observations with two remotely controlled telescope across the next year, when the weather is permitting and the Earthshine is optimal (having a good amount of shadow of the moon to allow the meteor impacts to show up). My main telescope is a 10" Meade telescope. I am using the data from videos captured by the telescopes to ...

GOTO mounts

I find the cost of the Skywatcher Goto upgade kits a rip off.For the EQ5 its £299,since this is "old" technology and the workings are nothing really special,its over valued.
Maybe Skywatcher should drop the price or someone brings onto the market their own kit at a much lower price tag.I can buy the EQ3 PRO at £385 all in which will carry my scope very well.

Does Dark Energy Really Exist? Does Dark Energy Really Exist?

Dark energy is a hypothetical form of energy that is supposed to permeate all of space and tends to accelerate the expansion of the universe. Apparently it's only a mathematical construct to make the formulas balance and to account for the missing mass in the universe and the observations. Nobody has detected dark energy yet and the exact physics behind it remains unknown. Well I don't believe it exists as I have a better theory. ...

mount maintenance

My EQ6 mount is left out in the garden (covered of course). After several years use, shouldn't I be lubricating the moving parts, and if so what when and how?
