I purchased a Skywatcher 150P DS as it was slightly bigger than my old refractor. Being a reflector I had no real idea what to expect as I hadn't used one before.
So I set it up and waited for a clear night.
A clear night came and I had the best view of Andromeda I have ever had. Stars seemed slightly clearer and there was definitely more detail. But me being me wanted to image all of this. I won't go into detail but reflectors are renowned for their afocal focussing troubles. Never the less I thought I was up for a challenge.
The resulting nights saw me getting more and more frustrated until last night I found that the eye piece was loose so I checked it and found that the 2" to 1.25" adapter was in two sections. So I unscrewed them and found I could screw my camera directly on the scope using the T-ring.
So these are my first "real" pictures. Not much but a starting point.
Anyways, lets call this day one with the new scope and I'll hopefully be able to improve on the above.
