Subject: Ciao Sent: Monday, June 4, 2012 15:47:42 From: Antonio Frontera (firstname.lastname@example.org) thank you for your great site about ETX 125! I have a etx 125 with a MEADE LPI bought used. I have a little big problem: on my mac lion doesn't work. Doesn't work on a mac LEOPARD too.. and doesn't work on a WINDOWS 7. Either on a WINDOWS XP. This meade LPI sucks. The seller who send me (via ebay) is a person in who i trust... he told me that several month ago it worked well. So i WRITE TO YOU because i'd like to know only this: IF I CONNECT this object to every mac / pc (either if i installed drivers or not) ... i think that the DEVICE MUST BE releaved by the PC/MAC... almost REVEALED !!! or doesn't it? because i've to understand if i am doing some mistakes about install drivers. Thank you if you could help me Ciao 73Mike here: Hello from my observatory. I'm doing a dry-run for tomorrow's Transit of Venus.

Subject: will it work Sent: Saturday, May 12, 2012 13:42:09 From: email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) I have a celestron Se8 with a f10 I have a meade DSI II and am trying to get a whole pic of the sun or moon in one shot. My question is will a Meade LSI be able to do this? any help will be appreciatedMike here: I'm not familiar with a "LSI" not the Celestron telescope. But as I recall, the LPI is like a 6.7mm eyepiece.
thats whatI ment. LPI. I have a 3.3 focal reducer I want to be able to image the sun for the venus transit. I cant seem to do it with theDSI II. I was thinking about getting the LPI or mabey the Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imaging Camera IV, but I don't want to spend money on anything I dont need or wont work. I am not to good at math and people keep giving me formulas that I am having trouble to figure out. Would you have any suggestions on what i should do with the telescope I have?Mike here: You may get the LPI + focal reducer to give you a full disk image (or, depending on the telescope). You can see some very old images I did with a LPI here:
