    Hi Brian,

    I don't know the whole story (maybe someone else can help out here), but sadly this site isn't being maintained anymore. Quite a few of the features don't work properly, and apparently spammers have attacked it (boy some people need to get a life!!!). See the announcement here: Announcements - Refractor Telescopes Forum

    Why not join The Sky Searchers like a lot of the regulars from here: https://theskysearchers.com/index.php (Some have even joined CN!!! )

    See you (and your images) there!

    All the best,

    - Dean

    Yep. A broken forum. Most of the list of online members are spam bots. Sad.
