    Sorry but I can't see the reply. Is it because I am new with under 5 posts?

    Welcome to the Astronomy Forum and thanks a bunch for joining us.

    The 8SE is a very fine portable telescope for viewing the night sky. You can even do some alt azimuth mount astrophotography with it; enough for you to try astrophotography out to see if its your thing or not. If so, then you will want to purchase a German equatorial mount for your 8SE a couple of years +/- from now.

    Hi Adam. It's great to have you join us on here. And, congratulations on the new 8SE telescope. That was very nice lunar image, with lots of nice surface details along the terminator. Welcome to the forum Adam, and keep us posted with more of your astrophotography work.

    Bit of a bump.

    Have had a go at some photography, man trying to focus and find at planet is hard via camera even with an eye piece.

    I got the starsence, focus motor and neximage 10 to play with.

    Below is my first taster with the neximage 10.

    I have found though there are a couple of specs of dust on the inside of the lens on the refracter annoyingly.....

    But hey, practise makes perfect.

    Regards

    Hi, allesclar. Thanks for the update.

    Unfortunately, since you were last here, the forum has gone downhill. It is overrun by spambots. Many favourite features no longer work, such as uploading images. And, as a result, most of the members have left.

    Please read the Important Notice in my signature, and follow the link you will find there. The Sky Searchers is a new forum where many of the former members from here have taken refuge. It has the same helpful, friendly atmosphere that AstronomyForum.net used to be known for. I hope to see you over there.

    Regards,
    Kathy
