- Hi all,
I'm new to this group. I just got a TMB 100/800 from Markus (I live in
Netherlands). I caught first light a few nights ago, just before the
clouds rolled in. Mars was beautiful, and I can see myself enjoying
this scope for a long time.
Question - I see a lot of posts about the Feathertouch focuser. Has
anyone used the van Slyke focusers? Seems like it makes using an
autofocuser routine like Robofocus easier.
Am I right?
Does anyone have any experience, photos?
Please let me know.
