The all-around best catadioptric has got to be the Celestron 9.25:
And as the review states, it works very well with a Losmandy GM8 mount (the ad is not mine):
What you're asking for would cost 5-10X what you're willing to spend. You can get an entry level scope and a few cheap eyepieces for that price, but that's about it.
A decent cassegrain telescope will cost you about $1000 and is probably the best bang for buck for deep-sky and...
Ivan, think someone should lock this topic and ban (q)?
Ban me? You want to ban me because I asked you a couple of questions?
Perhaps you have an anger management issue if something as simple as being asked a question leads you to hostility.
Why don't you tell us what you REALLY think?
I do have a feeling that the Earth’s magnetic field, as well as any stray fields, may have an impact on this one way or the other.
A ‘feeling?’ What about evidence, got any of that?
I think I saw somewhere in here about someone getting headaches when around high voltage lines - I have...
I see that you are still with us O' feathered one
And I come back to find cheap shots have been taken against the humble Q. Lets look at them shall we?
(Q) is a delicate sealed vessel struggling to contain a mass of nutty notions, a pot waiting to crack. I think he secretly...
A first year student may be able to tear my theories to pieces, however they are not theories so where do we go from here?
Nowhere, you’re story does not check out, its all nonsense.
I will admit that as an inventor, I have managed to give myself an edge which means that I can dowse under...
There is too much involved to cover the whole area of mental dowsing in one go…
In other words, you have no clue?
The physical laws involved are Geomatic Flux eminating via solar flares and UV rays which cancel them, plus the aid of lunar reflection to enhance dowsing ability.
Thanks - I read them through, however there were no clear answers other than "there is no "cause" in the heavens followed by an "effect" here on Earth. Instead, both planetary and earthly events happen simultaneously and are mutually reflective. Neither is the other here on the Earth below."...
I feel I have simplified the workings of mental dowsing down to a few physical laws as to why, when and how mental dowsing works.
Please explain - what physical laws exactly? How does mental dowsing work exactly?
One point I wish to make is that mental dowsing is as real as any other of...
So, how exactly do planets millions/billions of miles away affect us?
And why do no two astrologers ever agree on their premonitions?
I don't ever remember Astrology being associated with science - when did that happen?
try to think through realistic and logical trains of thought about how their ships operate.
This is where the UFO nutters lose it as they can never understand the physics behind their so-called “realistic and logical trains of thought” yet press on with their claims stating that aliens MUST...
While searching a topic on Google, I ran across a link that lead to Physicsforums so I clicked the link.
The next thing I knew, my computer was under massive attack. Viruses were being delivered as anti-virus warning windows began popping up. Spybots and Malware were being delivered - found...
