4505New Megrez 80 SD II
- Jul 1, 2005Hello fellow astronomy enthusiasts.
I just purchased the 80mm Megrez SD package and should receive it next
week. I need some advise from other scope users. I would like to use a
binoviewer like a Siebert or a Burgess/Stellarvue. David Yang told me
that he is pretty sure that it would work fine without the diagonal,
but I would like to use it with the diagonal as it is easier to
observe near zenith. He could not ascertain that using the diagonal
would work well. Does anyone has experience with this setup?
I would like to use a lightweight alt-az mount to put on my Bogen
3246 tripod. Any recommendations? For the short term I will be using a
Bogen 501 head.
Last question. Which filters are the most useful for observing the
planets and DSO's. I ordered the WO VR-1 filter and a Meade variable
Polarizer for Moon observing. I am fortunate to live in an area with
dark skies and minimal light pollution. Thank you in advance for your
much appreciated sage advise.
