Do you remember the
first day using your refractor?. Experiences?, Observing?. Did you
the date (year)?
The first observation was made, obviously, as soon as
the lens cell was fitted in the tube. The daylight observation of the
bell tower of
“Bagnacavallo” town showed immedaitely the superior quality. The real
first light was in the night, two days later,
on Saturn, Moon and some double stars.
Astonishing! The stars were really ... pin-point!
observing site?. Conditions of the site (weather, limiting magnitude,
transparency, "seeing".., etc)?
My favourite site is every open place were staying
with friends and sharing the beauty of the heavens. But when I am alone
move a lot. I observe from street level near my house (bad
transparency, medium seeing, limiting mag around 3 naked eye ... in a
What type of sky objects
do you prefer to observe with your Telementor/Telemator?
Of course ... everything!, but
I prefer planets, Moon, double stars and, from time to time, our Sun.
What is your best achieved
view or the most incredible view you have got with the Telementor?.
is the most beautiful sky object observed with your refractor?
Well, Jupiter, Jupiter, and
them, I almost forgot .... Jupiter !
What eyepieces do you
use?. Other accesories?
I use mainly an 8 mm Plossl eyepiece by Clavè and a 6
mm Zeiss on planets. On the Moon, a 12 mm Clavè and a 15 mm
small Zeiss with other telescopes?. What were your experiences on this?
I tested it side by side with my 15 cm Mak. Well, 15 cm makes a lot of
difference, but the quality
of the image is stunning.
Are you happy with
your refractor?. Pros and cons?
VERY much, more, having made by myself the OTA it
light and very easy to use. Cons? The finder, but it’s by Meade ... and
