  1. Really fantastic images, brilliant!
  2. Aug states Solar Eclipse

    We're staying in Sandy just west of Portland the night before and heading out early next morning in the direction of Madras. I'm not sure exactly where we are going to watch the eclipse, American highways don't seem to have any places to stop and I'm now getting a bit stressed (what with all the hype) about how much traffic there will be on highway 26 going into Madras. I think that I may end up watching the eclipse from the car will sitting in a traffic jam, I hope not

    Some nice activity today when the clouds got out of the way. A couple of lovely proms and a decent sized spot.
  8. A really nice vintage Vixen 80S F5 tabletop refractor, from the 1970's (I think). The optics are bright and unmarked, the tube and stand are in good condition. It come with a two 0.965'' eyepieces (25mm & 8mm), a diagonal and barlow lens. Also included is the Vixen 0.965'' to 1.25'' adaptor (replaces the 0.965'' focus draw tube end) so it can be used with 1.25'' eyepieces/diagonals. I've used the scope with my 1.25'' eyepieces and it give great rich field views. The tabletop mount is heavy and stable, up and down movements are smooth and controllable. The whole thing is really well made and very solid, total weight is approx 3.5kgs £120 incl P&P
  9. Heads-up 20" mirror....

  10. Yes. I've used it on my Canon 60D and 1100D, it's the regular EF-S fitting.

  12. If you don't mind a second hand lens then this may be within your budget :- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sigma-400mm-f5-6-D-APO-Tele-Macro-1-5-6-AF-for-Nikon-Pristine-Condition/122544027680?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D43781%26meid%3Dcb5ab977bb2c4479bdd210d1a9a63c73%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D122544027680
