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:The Helix looks great, he may just need more time with the setup.
Quote:I do not belong to Facebook and I have no interest in joining. It would be nice if Jason joined Cloudy Nights and share his experiences with LX800 here.If he was using Starlock, then it may prove that the internal Crayford style focuser inside Meade's new SCT scope is working well.I do not understand why Jason is the only one successful with LX800 unless his mount is the first to be fixed from the recall.Peter

Quote:A very tough crowd -- "His stars aren't round" & "I'm not impressed".Those shots at Links 1 thru 4 look really good to me, and the stars look acceptably "round".I'm not highly motivated to post images here.

Quote:I do not belong to Facebook and have no interest. Can anyone copy Jason's text from Meade's facebook and paste the text here so we all can read more information about the images?
Quote:That's as far as I can go but when I want to look inside more of Jason's images or information, it prompts me to login.Where does it say "5 minute subs"?Peter
