Quote: If you look at the Moon frequently, the variable Moon filter will be useful now and absolutely necessary when you get the 10". I find it actually painful to look at the nearly-full Moon through my 10" Dob w/out the filter turned down pretty dark.

Quote: The chair was something I was thinking of making myself. I think I have plans for making one some where. For now the lawn/patio chair works great even at zenith, although I rarely ever look straight up.
Quote:How are the Celestron OIII and UHC filters? Also placed the Meade lunar/planetary 4 filter set in the cart. Are these any good too? I know I will rarely need the color filters but it does come with the 13% moon filter and the price is under $30.
Quote:I want to leave as much left over from what I have to grab a used 10" dob when one pops up.
Quote: I'd rather see the Lagoon Nebula in my 10" dob and 24mm eyepiece, then with a smaller scope filterd to the hilt......without the aperture to pull in the fuzzies, the filter is just a colored piece of glass.
