    I may be able to help there - I have something to complain about! My car failed the MOT and needs work doing! Does that help you with your problem? Oh no! It doesn't does it, because it's my problem - oh sorry - can't really help then... I'll go back to sleep now...

    NGC1499 otherwise known as Sh2-220 or the California Nebula imaged on Christmas Eve with a bright, 93% illuminated Moon not so far away. A total of 5 hours 10 mins using my Tak FS60CB at f4.2 with modified Canon 40D. CLS filter fitted but not much help in the strong moonlight. CS, Andy

    Looks like we can put this to bed now. https://www.quantamagazine.org/studies-rescue-ligos-gravitational-wave-signal-from-the-noise-20181213/ I for one am glad the results were questioned, investigated and confirmed. Now we know to a more certain degree that GWs were detected.

    It's a Meade with the "bird-jones" optical design (hence the short tube and relatively long focal length). Even though minor details are different I think it's the same scope as pictured in kipfords post.

    Very good Andy. Nicely framed. The 40d is still a proven performer.

    I think this thread has come to the end of it's usefulness now as well as moving well away from an astronomy connection so I'm putting it to sleep
