Ratings not being accepted, and ratings disappearing

Posted By Stewart Valentine

Somehow I unentenally gave Richard Harding one star.  I don't know what I "touched" but it was my entention to give 5. Can I change that somehow?

Instructions on changing a rating?

Posted By Stewart Valentine

I gave good written reviews of Richard Harding but it seems that I touched a one star rating instead of 5. How can I rectify this?
It bothers me slot.

I picked up one of those.  I believe I may not have all the connecting parts.  I would love to give it a try. Love to put it on the 228 my tmb.

Polishing the secondary of a c14

Posted By Stewart Valentine

Well,  my question is.  ,Is anyone doing that.  I heard a while back that Celestine corrected them on the secondary and tended to leave them a bit rough and realising them "could" be the ticket to better views.  I have an orange tube of the late 70s era that I would like to improve if possible

Generally underwhelming results from 8” LX200 classic

Posted By Stewart Valentine

Save your money. You need to get to 11 inch to really start to see stuff. I sold one complete for 1600. Deals are out there. I have a 9" apo. I get great views . A good 6 in. Refractor will be an improvement. My mewlon and c14 are good. Save , save and save . Then wait until you see what you want . I would go celestron but there are some others that are superb. I have bought good c14s for 7 to 800.
