Quote:@Skip, I'm at UT Arlington and can barely see the ring nebula and the great hercules globular cluster through my 6 inch dob. My best views of these objects came from a trip me and my dob took to possum kingdom state park (blue on darksky). The milky way there is marvelous. With so many stars and very little experience I easily got lost though
Quote:Looking good, Hernando !
It always amazes me though, how much different the Moon can appear depending on from which part of the world it is viewed !
I remember it at a similar angle to this when I was in Singapore and Malaysia, whereas traditionally to me, Tycho crater is always either positioned almost due North or due South, (depending on the 'scope accessories used), and similarly, the Mare Crisium either virtually due East or due West !
The South Asian full Moon's orientation however, is definitely something novel to Northern European eyes !
Best regards and many thanks for the loan of your 4SE "disassembly" photos, (above).
Quote:Hi phpnbr, The Philips unit is however potentially available, (currently out of stock), as the SPC880NC, flash upgradeable to the SPC900NC from Morgan's Computers in the UK, (but perhaps many other sources), and is supplied as an economically priced bundle which includes the necessary 'scope "nose-piece" adapter and Infra Red filter.See: http://www.morgancomputers.co.uk/product_detail/11781/Philips-Pre-flashed-SPC... As mentioned, I believe these comments I have made to be true. I, of course, welcome confirmation or correction and any additions others might care to make. Best regards, Tel
