That's awesome and would love to see things first hand! I am sadly still very new and have only basic knowledge but I guess we all to start somewhere! If you're cool I would love to organize something and just let me know. I do admit I love dobs...but I have Scottish parents and therefore like bang for the buck perhaps? However I am more than prepared to take good advice when needed and this may sound blasphemous but doing hours of visual to just a see a grey smudge did admittedly get frustrating at times but if EAA/VA can provide a deeper window into the universe then I am definitely keen! I don't expect miracles but from the videos I have seen from members on this forum I am more than interested! (Just in the process of getting some more funds together but that won't take long and gives me time for research and proper thought into what I need).
I will check out the NSN and subscribe to that FB page of the gentleman in NZ. Yes I look into the EQ mounts and simply put effort into getting use to using them! I am trying to avoid the temptation of a nice 9.25 SCT scope that I can get for about $1800 that has GOTO but apparently the focal length causes issues as it is seriously slow. Okay drop me a line of a time you were thinking of going somewhere and I can meet you there as I don't need to cause you too much trouble, or I can come to your place or somewhere neutral! Another scope I like the look of are the Explore Scientific AR152, but by the time you put a mount on them,,,etc it gets too expensive. I do like the idea of a nice 10" newt on an EQ mount (despite the naysayers, but again I can take good advice!!). Looks like my expensive Gypsy Jazz handmade guitar is definitely up for sale!! lol!!
Came to the right forum,, Scottish heritage members get front row seats in here,,, hard to believe ,,but I'm Scottish as well,,😂
