  1. It is a slow starter.. i remember the first time i watched it i turned it off shortly after the crash scene thinking what the hell is going on this is weird, thought he was hallucinating etc, boring..!!! about 6 months later a mate was talking about it in work and i mentioned the above and he was like "oh my god you must re-watch it to the end" and lent me the dvd, so I did and it was well worth it....
  2. My kids are ill and got me up at the crack of dawn this wknd, and as I entered the kitchen with the lights off I was greeted through our huge french doors by a pitch black sky about to hit sunrise, with a lovely crescent moon and Venus just above it... so popped out and grabbed a quick pic with my mobile and think it came out quite ok for a quick mobile pic and thought would share it....
  3. well its still perfect with all the manuals, bags, in the original box etc... i always keep all that in the attic for anything i buy for resale...
  4. it did have an extra skywatcher 2x barlow and a 4mm EP which I had bought since i had it, but I was still well pleased... I almost put a buy it now of £80 on....
  5. I didnt realise scopes held their value so well, or have I just been lucky??? Last Jan I bought my first scope a Heritage 130p, for £135 plus p&p from FLO. Decided to sell it on last week and maybe use what I got back to fund an upgrade, was expecting maybe £70-80, so stuck it on the bay, and it ended today gone for £120... Sorted!! :)
  6. Another lovely calm night, totally clear here, reasonable seeing and not too cold to have to wrap up warm, I can already see jupiter peeking brightly over the rooftops, so took the scope out to cool and suddenly smelt burning wood, looked over to the left and about 2 gardens down someone is just starting a huge fire... lovely...!!! and then within minutes I could hardly see ten foot nevermind across the galaxy.... not to mention to smell.. damn neighbours always spoiling things if its not LP with security lights etc then its stuff like this!!!
  7. I had ok seeing tonight... only my local LP let me down as usual and as Jup is so low in the sky it was sat right along the edge of the LP zone... could not see GRS with my scope but could see two clear bands though @65x but any higher mag lost the focus and hence the bands with it... it was so clear I even managed to grab these using my mobile held against the EP...
  8. first ever views of jupiter an saturn rank up there with losing ya virginity.. lol!
  9. so neutrinos can make the kessel run in less than 12 parsecs too???
  10. yeah i bought a maplin brand pc psu last year and it died after about 6mths...
  11. maplins do some real good offers sometimes on all sorts, but some are store dependant as there are 3 in cardiff and sometimes only see an offer in one, and they dont seem to advertise em much either, you gotta be passing a store and see a poster in the window to catch em most of the time...
  12. If anyone is interested, I just popped into Aldi while I was passing for some milk and in the centre isle things where they have all the non-food stuff I noticed a small metal carrycase, its down as a DVD/CD case but looks a good size for keeping some related bits and bobs in, EPs etc, if you source some foam for it... £9.99.. ALDI LINK
  13. was watching a prog only 2 or 3 nights ago on one of the discovery channels about the AN225... its mental how that thing even gets off the ground on its own, nevermind with some of the massive cargo it can take inside as well like trains and tanks etc...
  14. taken mine in a few trips in the boot in the original box and always been fine....
