Re: Buying a scope from USA

Astrograph thanks for the information, I have spoken to several shops and they have al said the DS60 doesn't have to be matched. Can you recall where your information comes from then I can quote it.

Buying a scope from USA

I am in the uk but cannot get the scope I want, has anyone had an experience of buying direct from Lunt USA. How do costs, service compare and do you have to pay import tax - thanks

Re: SolarQuest review

What about the tripod, is it solid? live in a windy area in Shetland, UK Hi There and welcome to the forum. I have the AZ GTi, essentially the non solar version but with the same tripod.

Re: Lunt 60 Pressure tuning question(s)

Not got a scope yet, many people have said they have to replace the seals frequently even after a short time

Does anyone have any photos taken by a Lunt60mm, DS50 scope and any suggestions for a good Mono camera for this set up
