Filter Sizes Poll
« on: 09:46:41, 20 January, 2018 »
Just wondering what percentage of members use 'standard' 1.25" filters and how many use something different.

Rules:
Don't include filters you use for purely visual
If you use filters of different sizes, select the size you would choose if you could only have one size (including price consideration)

[In case you see it there and wonder, I am also running a similar poll on another astro forum.]

Thanks

Arrrh.... like we did with Keith and Nigel those times.. where you put your eye to a small glass thing attached to the back of a big glass thing and look as grey smudges... wondered what that was called  :blindfold: :urock: :gum:

Red field just seems to be a bunch of people arguing about whether they can see something or not and then having agreed it is indeed visible (with averted vision...don't get me started on seeing something by not looking at it) they then argue about whether it is on focus or not and who needs to make an appointment at Specsavers.
