:roll: ohnestly! everyone makes comments like that when ever you tell them you have telescope, its just not pratical to use it like that...better to use the smaller finderscope... much better. :lol:

i have taken one shot through my front room window with it at its highest magnification, of the neighbours TV antenna! which was at about 300x The house is about 100 feet away, the antenna is about 2 foot long...

just playing around really!

A good Friend and co-worker of mine is a dedicated amateur astrologist that has just bought a load of camera equipment for his telescope. He's got one of these motorized thingamajigs to compensate for the earth's rotation.

I'll also add that when I used my spell checker "thingamajig" didn't display and other wording examples. :shock: Weird!
Just thought I'd throw that out.
