Re: Solar film on 8 inch SCT

Won't make much of a difference save for resolution (of sunspots), which will be rather minute.

Re: WTB: My First Telescope!

If your budget is tight, I suggest you get a good pair of binoculars to start off with.

Re: Newbie with Celestron C70 spotting scope

A good eyepiece can fulfil the potential of any scope but that potential varies from scope to scope. Views with a good eyepiece will definitely be better than the views from an average eyepiece, etc.

However, a crappy scope will not become an excellent one with a good eyepiece.
