Re: WTB 80ED

Yeah very bent on going for it... The only thing stopping me is that I wanna use it as a grab n go / travel scope too. Maybe to catch ISON at the year end as well. But on the bright side this scope would be more portable! Hmmm... Me thinks I should get it too :P [smilie=confused.gif]

WTB 80ED [FOUND]

Hi all, am looking for an 80mm refractor for astrophotography. Price maybe around $500, would be good if you have tube rings etc for the scope. My budget's kinda tight but if you have any offers do drop me a text we can negotiate :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Re: Where in Malaysia has clear dark skies?

Thanks for the help on searching but anyway I found a resort further north near Mersing at Air Papan. Not sure if any of you guys have heard of it before - Air Papan Beach Resort. No idea how it will be but going up there this weekend. Haha. Anyone been there before? :P

"why not?"

"only the public are allowed in...if you want to view your own scope, you can bring it to Chinese Garden MRT to view there."

Try using live view to zoom in on the sunspots and focus? Hope that helps...

Re: Solar filter for C8

Ok seems interesting. The solar filter I have was bought a while back from astrobargains.com... Its a loose sheet though but I think I remember it is thousand oaks (Its black in colour). Just wondering, would it be better to buy one of those ready made/glass filters?
