  3. Aye started to watch first one but fell asleep half way through... Morgan Freeman - The perfect cure for insomnia ! :-)
  4. Sounds a good trip that Steve, when we heading up? Me and our lass are free august/sept time ?? :-)
  5. One's near me stay off for a good 40 mins or so? Must be the bulbs or something ? Very funny when neighbour over road keeps ringing council to repair them!! :-) hehehe !! :-)
  6. I just got a green 5mw off ebay, little bigger than a pen...works a treat...even turns off street lights...
  7. Get yourself's a green laser pen from ebay, point it at the sensor, and they go off for an hour, walah !! :-)
  8. Hi Steve, I got setup in garden last night and saw Saturn for first time... Absolute awesome sight... was blown away...
  9. Yeah was after some hand held ones really? Just to take with me on a cloudy night when in middle of country... Was thinking something like this? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BRESSER-HUNTER-PORRO-10x50-BINOCULARS-COMPLETE-UNUSED-/180635807709?pt=UK_Photography_Binoculars_ET&hash=item2a0ebbafdd#ht_500wt_1156
  10. The moon atomic fragments and fictions - Angels and Airwaves
  11. I just want Mr Cox to admit he only went to those locations for a clear and very very dark sky.. :-)
  12. hi folks, wondered if you could be of assistance, I've got around £50 to spend on some bino's just to take along when I take my scope out to help me find bits etc? Any suggestions? Not expecting the worlds greatest? cheers, Paul.
  13. Gizmodo, the Gadget Guide Sorry if already posted.... We certainly need to go back there, imagine a station on the moon...
  14. (Apologies couldn't find it posted?) Anyone else watch it last night?? Focused on asteroids last night, very very interesting... they say car size ones impact our earth everyday... And the one that's coming close by in 2029 says if it passes through this certain window of only a mile wide, it will deflect it enough to hit earth... Next one on sunday at 8pm.... http://www.history.com/shows/the-universe
  15. Just a question folks... Are these classed as cheating so to speak? Are they accurate enough?? Was just thinking last night as I set up in my garden how much time i'd save without having to search for things which would give me a lot more viewing time...
  16. Yeah I read that, great artical.. Let's hope Cameron doesn't get S@N or they'll be plans for a wind farm on neptune...
  17. I meant more in terms of pushing other objects off course/out of it's normal orbit so to speak?? Not debris from the planet....
  18. Was just reading this and it got me thinking... Betelgeuse to be second sun for Earth as supernova turns night into day | Mail Online
  19. Sorry probably a silly question... But when this explodes is there a possibility that the force of the blast could send asteroids our way?? I'll be certainly keeping an eye on it when out and about...Imagine viewing it and it explodes...Something probably once in a lifetime opportunity to see...
  20. Well forecast looks good tonight if anyone fancies meeting up? We've found a great place at FARNLEY PARK in LS12 if any of you are up for it ??? (Totally safe, nice and dark) I'll probably bob up from around half 6ish / 7ish??? Paul.
  21. No chance here, cloud everywhere... Am just hoping we have one clear night this week...
  22. Been new to astronomy I just wondered if there's anywhere I could find if any are due to pass us some time soon?? Met with Steve off here at my local park and we both agreed it would be cool to see one with the scope??? Just for the trails of colour more than anything?? Know there was hale bop in 97??? Sorry if a stupid question !!!
