Why don't you email John and ask him.  If you submitted an image Craig there's a good
chance its in it as there are loads in the book.

I wonder if any of our members images made it into the book?

Hi Martin,


I just had a google at M13 images and it does seem like the star you talked about is not a double, so looks like your spider vanes are not aligned properly. I donít know if/how to adjust them though and remember the secondary should be offset slightly from centre since itís a fast newt.

Just to follow-up. Ian and I installed the VX10 in my Wigtown observatory at the weekend and managed a few five minute subs of M13. Early indications are that everything is good and there's no problem with the scope. I'm very relieved. I will probably gather more data before posting an image, and I need to tweak the polar alignment.


Cheers, Martin

Probably not John. I think it's all been said there before and I note that they closed off the last review to further comments, so I don't think that SGL are comfortable with this kind of review.


Cheers, Martin

That's pretty bad.   Are you going to post your report and photo in Supplier Reviews on SGL for a wider audience?

Lovely image martin and well processed, must admit this target is on my hit list before it
gets too bright to do anything.

Hi Martin,


Yeah I'm not too bad thanks, hope your well yourself.  Well I think thats a good idea to check the mirror to
make sure everything is in order.  Yeah you are right about there communications and the email response,
it would take very little reassure a buyer as to the issues found.  I don't think they appreciate the damage
they do to their reputations sometimes.
