    I'm Marty, ie NCAstronut

    And I'm a NC Amature Astronomer, sence 2000. I have owned a Orion 130eq, 8"eq, 10"dob. Been telescopeless for about 2-1/2 years now. I like trying new things/scopes, and my last one well was just to big for my living arangements. Looking forwared to one day getting another scope. I just love to watch the heavens. Got my eye on a Orion Apex 127mm Tube only, and use my camera tripod till I can do better. Right now I just bird watch, and gaze at the moon. And shoot a few pictures with my lumix fz35.

    Well if all go's as planed monday 05-03-2010 I'll order my telescope. Orion Astroview 6 Eq. This time, I'm keeping my telescope/scopes if I ever get another after this one. This will give me the best bang for my bucks, and it has the ability to track objects some. And with a few upgrades it will be all I ever need most likely. Latter this summer, I hope to get a dual axis drive. And maybe a few filters, and I will need a better viewfinder a 10X50, right angle finder I think will be best. I also would like to maybe install a better focuser sometime. But just the scope is all I can get for a good while. This is even a big strain on our budget. But I cant see getting anying less, after owning a 8"eq, and a 10"dob in the past.
