I've not used one for so long I reckon I'd have to revise it - forgotten everything - In fact showing you was probably the last time lol. But technology moves on and we all use goto's, phone apps, ipads, etc, etc....

Yeah, I remember thinking I would never use goto due to cost and not learning the sky etc, but curiosity got the better of me and i found the money and I love it now, even if it isn't proper astronomy ( eh Mick? :D )

 

Here's to many more

Cheers Pat :)

A much debated subject - some say it is proper astronomy - some say it ain't.


 


I allways think it's a case of right tool for the right job. If you're imaging you don't want to waste time finding stuff cos there's so many other things to do (camera set up, collimation, capture and guiding software, computer link up, etc). So goto is indispensible.


 


If you're entertaining a crowd with views though - you can't beat a nice large aperture manual dob in the hands of an experienced star hopper for that wow factor. :)
