Quote:Thanks Chris. I have a non goto dob. So this may be a future purchase. I appreciate the advice.
Quote:Hi Ken: one of the reasons I bought a Mallincam was that my observing buddy has glaucoma and cataracts now and views through the telescope are dim at best. Solar system objects are usually viewable die to their brightness. He can see a TV screen just fine and now he can view any object. I know that this involves purchasing a fairly expensive item and adds some complexity to setting up. My friend has 95 percent vision loss but he hasn't missed out on observing. This time of year we both enjoy the warmth of a warm room while observing too.
Quote:Jon, Have you ever tried one of the camera mounts. LikeOrion SteadyPix Deluxe Camera Mount? Wondering if this will hold my point and shoot steady on my Dob?
