BUYER/NEW USER TIPS
Subject: Performance Parameters Sent: Wednesday, June 27, 2001 22:47:15 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Rodolfo Mier) I made a comparison table (Excel file) with performance parameters for the ETX-90, ETX-125, and some bigger scopes. The table gives a cuantitative idea of the capabilities of each telescope. Congratulations for all your work, you and Clay are very important for amateur astronomers around the world. Regards, Rodolfo Mier (from Monterrey, Mxico). P.S. Last night I had the chance to use my new ETX-125. The city lights and the summer heat caused poor seeing conditions; however, after a rough Alt-Az home position and two star alightment all objects were in the FOV of my 26 mm and Mars tracking (even at high power) is excellent (after 1/2 hr I got bored and turned to M6 and M7 (wow)! I have not seen any galaxies yet. And I might not have the chance in my site. I would like to split gamma Virgo and test the resolution of my telescope. Any recommendations to split it? Or other good (with very similar magnitudes) binaries for testing resolution?
