SCT Electric Focuser

Posted By Miguel Olivares

I bought a JMI NGF-S for my LX10 from Adorama for $229.95. I am very happy with it. Focusing is easier and mirror shift is not an issue and I am able to use the telescope's focuser when I need to.

As far as I know, Microsoft released a patch to prevent this from happening--last July. It seems like some system administrators are not doing their job.

Meade UHT Coatings Worth it?

Posted By Miguel Olivares

Sky & Telescope on the Meade 8" LX200:
March 2003 issue

" is photographers and CCD imagers who will benefit most from the coatings. For visual observers a 20% increase in throughput means that the telescope will reach stars only 0.2 magnitude fainter."

"...the dark adapted eye is most sensitive to green light, where the UHTC coating is less effective..."

Magnascopium and Me.

Man, now you got me wanting to upgrade. My LX10 gives some surprising views when the seeing supports it. It shows E,F clearly in the trapezium, but a 12 or 16" would be nice.

What are you working on now?
