comments on southern hemisphere books

Posted By Andre Moutinho

Does anyone have any comments regarding the following books:
1) The Southern Sky Guide by David Ellyard, Wil Tirion
2) A Walk Through the Southern Sky by Milton D. Heifetz, Wil Tirion
3) Southern Stargazer, Philip

Any other cheap alternative ?

I know the best is Hartung's, but it's very expensive.

Thanks,
Andre

2" eyepieces and secondary mirror

Posted By Andre Moutinho

Hi,

I have a 7" f/7 scope with a secondary mirror of 32mm of minor axis and a 1.25" focuser. I am planning to use 2" eps with this scope but I need to replace the current 1.25" focuser for a 2" one. Do I have to change the secondary mirror for a bigger one or it does not have nothing to do with the used ep barrel.
Thanks,
Andre
