    Here's this month's discussion thread.

    No April Fools jokes, please. This whole forum mess is enough levity for all of us.

    Thanks for the updated new page.

    Now if we can only get the photo (and a few other things) fixed~

    Thought I might have an image to post up but got carried away with the ROI (region of interest) tool and it's just to pix elated to post. Oh well chalk it up to still learning!

    Large AR coming off the rim, so naturally we are clouded out for the next 7 days!

    Quick question, I have a Celestron XLT120 f/8.3 that I got at a pawn shop, sometimes it gives good results sometimes not, not sure about the quality of it. High Point has an Explore Scientific 127mm f/7.5 a demo from N.E.A.F. on sale, it sounds like it would be better glass than the XLT120, wondering if I should get it to replace the 120 and would I notice a difference on solar?

    Thoughts?

    Jeff, I have a Celestron XLT120 that I've had for years. In my opinion, the XLT coatings on the glass are as good as they come... bright & clear. I've used it for white-light images, but have never tried my Quark on it.

    There is a possibility that your's was abused before you bought it at the pawn shop?????
