In this issue of 'Sky And Scopes'.....

1)In this months issue we have highlighted a few of the new additions to our site.

If you like this ezine maybe you could do me a big favor and 'pay it forward'. If a friend passed it on and you find it interesting, please subscribe here....

ZenithsStar 80II ED

The William Optics ZenithsStar 80II ED features the latest and arguably the best DDG (Digital) Focuser currently available.

This focuser offers a superior performance to many other typical 2" Crayford focusers, and is more robust and features more load bearing capacity.


Losmandy Titan

The Losmandy Titan Mount is an equatorial mount that supports up to 100lb instrument weight, and includes the head, weight shaft and two 21lb weights, extra 7lb and 11lb weights are available.

This one is definately for the serious astronomer who has a high quality scope and wants a mount to do it justice.


Coronado PST Personal Solar Telescope

The PST will show you the dynamic, ever changing prominences at the edge of the Sun as well as filaments and other surface details in amazing detail, all in the brilliant and distinctive red color of hydrogen-alpha light.


Skywatcher 300pds Explorer Telescope

The Skywatcher 300PDS Newtonian Reflector incorporates the same superb mirror-set as the Explorer-300P but with two significant advantages.

A Dual-Speed 10:1 ratio focuser is now included for excellent focusing precision. Also the tube length has been slightly shortened to optimise performance for prime-focus photography.


Lunar Planetary Filter Set

Now you can bring the cosmos in for a close-up with the intense, high-performance Zhumell Lunar Planetary Filter Set.

Included are #12 Yellow, #80A Blue, #21 Orange, and a Neutral Density Moon Filter (ND96-0.6).

Each one is designed for 1.25-inch format eyepieces to assist in viewing details in planetary and lunar landscapes. Once you incorporate these color filters into your setup, you’ll wonder how you ever did without them.


Where it warrants it we will have a feedback form covering each section, so you will be able to leave your comments, ideas, tips, images and thoughts on all aspects related to astronomy

Until Next Time, Keep Looking up..............
