Re: Posting in the Gallery

Hi Robin

I have posted the image of Jupiter above and I wish to delete the two posts that refers to Jupiter since it does not belong in "Posting in the Gallery". Unfortunately it does not allow me to delete these 2 posts myself. I have reposted it where it belongs. Thanks!

Cheers, Rick

Re: Saturn

I highly recommend the Explore Scientific Focal Extender 5x over Barlow. You can place the Focal Extender anywhere between the camera and scope without affecting or changing the magnification.
