TV-102i on the way

Posted By Don Wyman

Just bought a used TV-102i. That's the version with the tube shortened 5" so you can use a binoviewer without a compensator lense.

Does anyone else have one or have any experiences with one they can share?

Picked up used TV-102i

Posted By Don Wyman

Couldn't help myself. It just looked so lonely there on Astromart. Anyone else have one of these and can share some tips or experience?

Can we put this crap to rest and talk about Binos

Posted By Don Wyman

Enough already with the grade school infighting. Man this stuff gets old and it's the same baloney with different names. Let's get back to talking about binoviewers.

The Sun Today!!!!!!!

Posted By Don Wyman

Ohmigod get out there now! Huge prominences, several good sunspots. The sun seems to be completely encircled by prominences, big and small.

This is my first time out with my TV-102i, SM60 and Burgess Binoviewer. Incredible combination. Surface features are wonderful and so are the prominences. I only wish I weren't such a klutz when it comes to imaging the sun.

TV-102i with extension tubes

Posted By Don Wyman

Here's a picture of the TV-102i with the 2" and 3" extension tubes attached. I was surprised to find that I needed the 2" extension when using the Burgess Binoviewers. I wonder if it's needed with the Denkmeier or Televue units?

How did you find out and when do I get my first royalty check? Seems to me that I came up with the idea but you did it better.

20 Nagler Type 5 VS 22 Nagler Type 4

Posted By Don Wyman

Trying to decide between these two. I'm replacing my old workhorse 22 Panoptic for use in my 18" f/4.5 Obsession. Any thoughts?
