Tonight's looking promising.
May be time for the super dalek ...
I may only need these two all night.
Zoom shootout in small refractors soon ...
Watch this space.
These are all some very nice pieces of glass. You have quite the collection, Mak
Thanks Reggie. I've used the Baader zoom but the weather hasn't allowed me to night test the Celestron yet. They're quite different in many respects. I'll do a report/comparison when I get the chance.
I decided to put a Lynx Astro visual back adapter with a compression ring on my ED72.
This drastically improves the ability to rotate the diagonal in the focuser.
Why Synta don't put these in as stock is a mystery.
The diagonal is easier to secure now and doesn't rock in the focuser.
The ED72 focuser adapter has a different thread to other Evostar models and I've had to order a different one for my ED80. It's taking its time. I believe they may be made to order in the UK.
I've been experimenting with the 102mm Altair Starwave.
And added a second finder shoe.
This will enable the addition of an RACI for possible zenith viewing.
6x30 or 9x50?
