Re: 5" vs 6" SCT viewing/ astrophotography in Singapore

Long focal lengths are like looking through a straw. It is very hard to locate and see anything for starters especially locally. Perhaps a wider field scope of the 4in refractor class would be more suitable, a good compromise for visual and AP.

Re: A Newbie's Shameless Adventures in Imaging

Not sure, but it is slightly elliptical apparently, so perhaps this is close to the real shape?

Newbie's Starting out in Astrophotography - WHAT to BUY?

A Newbie's Impression of the Samyang/Rokinon 135 F2 for AP

As a departure from my earlier reviews, I would like to write about something predating those green/blue scopes. This was about 2 years ago. I had wanted a wide field lens for casual AP while on holiday, as and when the opportunity arises, with the family around and only a few hours of night time av...
