Nuncius,

I can't help but notice, you're pretty much alone posting here. I hope you're getting more activity on your website and magazine. I really admire you for trying to get something going like this.
Best of luck!

I used the Google translate button and enjoyed this review. I have a 70mm refractor and a 150mm (6-inch) sct. I am hunting for an alt/az mount. I are going to try a Vixen Porta Mount II. However, I may be undermounted on the Vixen Porta Mount II when I add a Finderscope RACI, telrad, and eyepiece to the 150mm sct (14 lbs / 6.4 kg).

Nice review. Thank you for posting entries from your blog.

This is the "not all true story" of the J.E.S.S. Catalog of cluster and nebula.
I,m afraid that will bit confuse when translated by google. But maybe not. Originally in Portuguese.
These is the index post. Hope you all enjoy.
