I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.

Quote:Perhaps a "starlore" or "constellations" section, something more tuned to how the old timers used the sky to gauge time, navigate, predict the future in a sense...prepare for good times & the not so good times. That's right..goin old school on the net!

Quote:The main discusssions in the "Telescope Specific" forums are about GOTO and mechanical isssues with Meade and Celestron GOTO systems. Changing them to Celestron Automated Systems and Meade Atomated Systems would be beter descriptions, as their other aspects are mostly discussed (or should be discussed) in the reflector, refractor, and CAT forums which would be otherwise redundant.

Quote:Quote:I'd like to see a 'Filters' section, as I have no interest in them, and they tend to clutter the Eyepiece section.Thanks,-Chuck Looking back over the threads, it is very clear that the subject of filters does *not* "clutter up" the eyepieces section. Eyepiece threads generally vastly dominate the number of filter threads. Filter threads have popped-up in a variety of forums (Beginners, Equipment, Eyepieces, Imaging, Deep-sky, etc.), not just the eyepiece forums and are not really a large enough class to justify a separate forum for them. Again, if you don't want to read a thread, you don't have to. Clear skies to you.
