Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are Anger and Courage. Anger at the way things are, and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are. - St. Augustine

Quote:Due to its length, I've shelved the idea of building a scope. My wife, who is otherwise very supportive, has brought me back to reality. An f/15 is right now out of the question.But I can still dream...

Quote:HI VaughnIs your Newtonian really a 200 mm f-13. I guess it can be a spherical mirror and not need parabolising at this focal length?? I used a friends 200 mm f-10 a few years ago and it was amazing when collimated.
