  2. lol....I to had the pirate patch, for the same reason. but, i had a left handed rifle, meant I had a bit more space on the range! actually , and in all seriousness I may try an eye patch while viewing, I imagine it would make focusing a bit easier
  3. may find this useful.. How to Determine Your Dominant Eye - wikiHow left eye , left hand, and left foot, right side of brain....Im a purist lol

    My first light! :)

    The Moon, viewed through my new Skywatcher Explorer 150p
  11. ....and withdraws finger from bid button! ta dude... besides I've spent far too much this month anyways! lol
  12. spot on! that's almost exactly what I saw right colour everything.
  13. that's cool, just out of interest , what is giving it its "star" like appearance? I noticed beetlejuice doing that the other day while all the other stars were pin sharp
  14. ....not to mention the first picture of a meter beyond the end of the universe!
  15. Adz, I wait to be corrected on this , but I'm sure they have worked out the projected mass of the universe, when the universe began, and how much its expanding by. by knowing these parameters, they can theorise on the size and shape of the universe. oh.... and I forgot, something like 80% of the known universe appeared in the first few nano seconds of it's existence....its a head bender indeed! as I say that's just my understanding, and I wait to be corrected by a much more learned person!
  16. it's not small......it's really far away! I bet people look like ants too....
  17. that's very dependant on what's relative, and whether its special or not!!
  18. this is a very cool site ,just move the bar left or right to move in or out of the universe! Scale of Universe - Interactive Scale of the Universe Tool
  19. I have the 150p as well. I have just purchased a 5,8,15,18 mm BST explorers from Alan at skysthelimit.org.uk . they really have that wow factor. I'm working on a very tight budget (about £40 an ep) and these offer real value , and fantastic viewing. good luck and clear skys!
  20. has to be said, I'm really enjoying mine too. I have just added some BST ep's to my set up, and it really does add to the wow factor! spend just over two hours pawing over the moon last night
  21. stick me on the PM list please nightfisher
