Re: Comparison between 102achro, ed100apo, mak127 SkyWatcher

https://i.imgur.com/3mkhZkS.jpeg Bought this phone clamp for cheap , metal eyepiece loop with plastic phone clamp. Online is about $5 to $7 , I don't recommend this because the above eyepieces used are 14 to 20mm eye relief. This clamp cannot raise the phone high or far enough , must clamp at rubbe...

Re: Comparison between 102achro, ed100apo, mak127 SkyWatcher

https://i.imgur.com/zFLH0x4.jpeg Smooth movement with the mount head. Didn't test high magnification tracking.

Surprised the achromat background is warped , I never noticed this flaw at the eyepiece because the scope is portable and wide angle fun to use. https://i.imgur.com/dxF1cVd.jpeg ED100 winner wi...

Comparison between 102achro, ed100apo, mak127 SkyWatcher

I had this ed100 scope and az4 mount on loan for a few weeks and thought about making it useful. Unscientific simple comparison with phone camera on auto + 5 second timer , no dslr. Non-tracking mount , no cooldown for scopes , no zenith. Celestron Astromaster 102az achromat , 660mm focal length Sky...

Re: The Universe@CCK

Re: Eyepieces from binoculars and modification.

Minor brighten , resize edit and upload for threadstarter. Didn't resize until very small as I think it's necessary to see the smaller details for those interested.
