    Default Hi all



    Think I should say Hi from Devon, England,
    I've been into astronomy all my life, but haven't been able to spend the time I'd like in enjoying it.
    I'm the very recent lucky owner of a Meade LX90 10", so recent, that the skies haven't been clear enough to put it through it's paces!!
    Good to meet you all
    Vince

    Hi vince ,Welcome aboard the forums . That 10in. lx90 is a planet killer for sure .Did you get any accessories with it ? I have a 8in. lx90 and love mine . They are awesome machines . With mine , i have a astrozap dew shield , 12x80 antares finder , telrad finder and a wedge for EQ mode .. What is happening with the weather is called the new scope curse . It happens to most , if not all amature astronomers when they get a new scope or new accessorie .. Good luck with your new scope and clear skys ..

    Welcome, Vince. It will clear up eventually for you. I've been lucky here. I've had a week of perfect seeing since I got a new eyepiece last Monday. Unbelievable!

    Hi Vince, I'm a newbie from Qld. Australia. I used to live in Cornwall ("Jackdaws", Two Waters Foot) near Liskeard, and came to Oz 28 years ago. Love it here but miss the Pasties.

    Cheers, Dave
