    Default Hello from Europe :)



    Hi, I have always been interested in sky... however, without company everything came to looking at summer stars at night from the window Some time ago the friend got simple refractor... and mania began again
    At the moment I have no telescope yet, but I am thinking about SW 150/750 PDS + HEQ5 GoTo... also, putting money away for it (the plus: size, weight, suitable for astrophoto, quite big aperture, fast. Minus - collimation... I think. Well, it is my primary decision, not sure about it yet. Anyway, still need to put away the money)
    I live a bit outside of the city, not very urbanized area yet, so even if the skies are not dark, they are much better than living in city.
    I am interested in astrophotography - for now all the photos was with simple DSLR camera, Manfrotto tripod and programmable remote, simple constelations, Jupiter in wide angle shot and so on. Currently working on focusing, white balance settings when working with skies photos. Well, moon photos as well.
    Also, reading a lot about necessary accessories and even starting to buy some of them (well, the UHC filter or TeleVue Radian 3mm should be suitable for most of chosen telescopes, as well as DSLR - T2 ring...)
    So, at start I will be quite silent - nothing to tell yet, but if you have any advices - you are always welcome to write.
    yarb and JFD like this.

    Thank you for acceptance
    Also, if I may to offer - there is a need to put the information that the introduction thread will not appear at once - only after the review. I did not find such information in sticky topic first post, so I was quite confused, why I am shown 2 points for posting, 1 thread and 0 posts... as well as no thread visible. Quite confusing...

    Thank you for greetings I understand this now, but it is not highly spread, for example, in admin greeting message or in first message of sticky topic for newcomers
    Ech, too bad it is cloudy in upcoming evenings - got some clouds-free time yesterday, tried binoculars...
    And what - no comments on chosen telescope? I almost expected that
