  1. Hi, just bought the 9mm super plossl from scopes n skies and very pleased with it after my first viewing through it. I decided to get this as an upgrade to the MA Skywatcher 10mm. Even though it was not the best viewing conditions tonight, slightly cloudy I could see a good improvement in detail when looking at Juipter. It's now my favourite eyepiece. Recommend to anyone who is still using their SW 10mm :)

  2. After what started out as a cloudy start to the evening. I was very pleased with the results of imaging Jupiter.

    I recently purchased a laser collimator, after collimation it made such an improvement to the viewing quality and therefore the imaging.

    Used a DSLR camera through Skyline 250PX and made up of up 4 stacked images

    My next attempt is going to be using the webcam more to get better shots but still very please with tonights result.

  3. Been preparing for a good night of observing Jupiter tonight. Recently got a laser collimator and played around collimating my scope as precise as possible during the day. First time collimating my scope with a laser. :)

    BBC Weather report looks good for tonight. Getting setup now and guess what comes floating across the sky big as anything?

    Oh the life of a UK amateur astronomer :(

  4. Quick question,

    What's the best way or easiest way of inserting photos from Flickr into posts on SGL?

    In the past I have grabbed the flickr jpg URL of the medium (640px) version gone to Insert Image pasted in the URL then highlight the picture and created a hyperlink to go to the photo page on Flickr.

    I've noticed quite a few posts where people have used flickr photos and have it says "from Flickr" along with the title of the photo in a consistent way. Am I missing something?

    Do I have to use BBCode? If so which one?


  5. It's been a while since I done any astrophotography. Decided to take a picture of full moon through my 10'' Dobsonian via DSLR. There was alot of cloud and just waited out until a small gap in the cloud.

    The weather has been pretty bad for long time now which is probably why I havn't done much astronomy this year.

    Enjoy :)

  6. Hope you don't mind but I was just doing some deeper comparisons and noticed during the 2 hours between our images that two small craters appear inside large one. Really cool to think that the moon phase is changing that fast. :o
