  2. glad to hear the good news. Are the floor tiles OK? otherwise you incur of the of the Commander in Chief
  3. Something has definitely emerged http://soho.esac.esa.int/data/realtime/c2/512/ http://soho.esac.esa.int/data/realtime/c3/512/
  4. Hi Baz/Steve, I know your frustrations only to well, having had my foot in plaster for the better part of 11 months, a few years ago. I recently got my hands on a decent observation stool for €20 in a local secondhand shop and to be honest I'm still scratching my head as to why I didn't get one sooner. I used it for the first time tonight and I enjoyed 2 hours of pain free time at the scope and like yourself I got some wonderful views of Jupiter and the Moon. Best of luck with the physiotherapy, it will seem like a complete pain, but it is well, well worth it in the long run.
  5. I set up earlier this afternoon, thinking it might clear later in the evening. But no joy, I called it quits at 6:00pm when the rain started.
  6. A wonderful night here in Dublin. Just after finishing up a three hour sint at the scope during that time I managed to,get a good,look at the following. Mizar Albiero Pleiadies Double Cluster Ring Nebula Altair Coathangar Cluster Dumbell Nebula Deneb Polaris Really chuffed with myself it is the decent eveing I've had in ages.
  7. After finishing up a good nights obs, I was dismantling my set up and my Better Half seeing my CPC 9.25 sitting off its tri-pod on the kitchen floors names it R2D2. Which has struck ever since.
  8. Good progress made today, now have all the bit 'n pieces together. Let the fun begin
  9. Have just started to gather the materials together for have a bash at it.
  10. I use Google Sky Map on my Samsung Galaxy II, it is free and I have found it to be very worthwhile. I also have Astro Panel for the weather and Aurora Buddy for predicting the Northern Lights.
  11. Cheers John, I've just installed it
  12. I recently bought my first edition of S@N mag for my ipad and I have to say I was disappointed as a lot of the content that is normally included on the CD was not available or at least I can't find it yet. I always enjoy the monthly sky notes on the CD, previously with Patrick Moore and Pete Lawrence and more recently with Paul Abel. I probably won't renew my ipad subscription if these item are not included.
  13. Cheers alan g I am considering getting one myself and I am please to read the positive review.
  14. A wonderfully clear night here in Dublin at present. Got some great views of Saturn. But boy is it cold.
  15. A definite must when I'm in London next time. Might even take the boat down from Tower Bridge.
