Meade ETX-80AT-TC

I have had this 'scope for some time now and I am well pleased with it although I am still struggling with the setup process. I am mainly observing the moon and taking a few photographs with my wife's Fuji Finepix compact, some of which I have posted on this forum. My next step is to get a better ca...

Re: Moon shots

Glad you like the Moon pictures. They are singles exposures, taken with a fujifinepix compact which is my wife's. The Tamron lens is in my bag of old camera equipment and I am glad you mentioned it, maybe I should dig it out and try it! Now my son has passed me by with his pictures of the Moon and s...

Re: Moon shots

Here's hoping Brian.
I can see so I suppose you can.
It's a bit big!
Do I have to post each image separately?

Re: astrophotography

Hello Brian.
No, I haven't solved my requirements yet although I have looked at a Nikon D3300 and a Canon EOS 1200D and my son is helping me search the web.
He's very good at finding things.
I am still not sure about the 'T' ring and erm the other thing.
Any help would be appreciated.

Good! It worked.
The last fourteen pictures are through my new Meade ETX 80, a Christmas present from my wife.
I used her Fujifinepix.

Re: Goto scopes

Thank you for the reply Brian. After quite a bit of research I made up my mind for the Meade. The Skywatcher is only a Goto if you buy the 'extra' goto device. My wife is buying the scope for me for Christmas and her budget is £200 so it has to be the Meade. I downloaded the manual and watched sever...

Goto scopes

I haven't posted on here for quite some time, Facebook and lack of sky due to a great big tree being two of the reasons. So I have a question which I have asked before but now I have revised the question. I have the possibility of buying a goto telescope and I have researched two which are:- 1. Mead...
