I was wondering if anyone out there has tried the Eclipse GOTOSTAR system yet? How good are the GOTO's? How does the system compare to systems by Meade and Celestron? How easy was it to install? Thanks in advance for any information. smile

Gotostar question

Posted By Michael Traub

Other then the funny noise the motors make how do you like the GOTOSTAR? Are the GOTO's accurate? I was thinking of getting one for my Vixen GP. smile

Solar filter visual vs photo

Posted By Michael Traub

No you will not be losing anything. You will have to take slightly longer exposures though. The only difference between the two is the density of the coating on the filter. smile
