Hi,

A ordering the parts tomorrow for my first motorised set up. I am replacing my current 60cm dish for an 80cm.

All the dishes are described as 'offset' is that correct? (the one I need)

and are transparent dishes OK?


Thanks

Hi Spleech
or should that be splash seeing as you are splashing out hehe
Dishes of this size are normally offset yes but there are I understand prime focus of 90cm but wouldn't swear on this. I have seen the clear ones in fact there is one posted on the forum in the thread running for about a month where members are posting pictures of their rigs.
