  1. glad it worked for you I am still having set up issues so the washers are not glued down yet but the setting up is all me !!!
  2. I have a nexstar se4 NexStar 4SE Computerized Telescope (item #11049) / NexStar SE Computerized Telescopes / Telescopes / Products / Celestron.com small enough to carry around and setup but was gift for my birthday so don't know the price sorry
  3. not too sure if this would work, but you could super glue metal washers down on the patio least if ya get it wrong youn could adjust after not like a drill hole ? long as the tripod leg fits snug ??
  4. cracking image could you tell me how and with what kit setup, you did this as I have the se4, but can not get anywhere near as good as your pic, mind you i an't got a lot of "bits" for the scope to play with yet lol
  5. newbie alert!! Not been looking with a telescope for too long. I have Only got a little nexstar se4 and put my DSLR on the back end of it. I do have a phillips web cam but have not had much luck with it. I only have one eyepiece a 25mm and no barlow My lap top is on its last legs battery wise so using outside is a no no so looks like i'm going to have to spend some dosh sooner or later lol.
  6. I jinxed it didn't I clouds clouds and more clouds.
  7. nice clear here too waiting for Saturn ( then there will be clouds! )
  8. I like this site LIVE REAL TIME SATELLITE TRACKING AND PREDICTIONS: UK-DMC do the five day forcast button
  9. I want to try something else now, but looks like the clouds have come in again and here for the night but yes it was deff a WOW moment for me Cheers all Why did it take me so long to get my first scope ?????
  10. Yup jumping for joy first view of Saturn and first picture 27.02.11 @ 01:03 with spc900nc ( still playing with scope and ccd lol) Well I know the picture is poo compaired with others on here but seeing I did not know what i was doing I'm happy with it. I also think it was stretching the scope a bit ? nexstar 4se can not wait to use the web cam on the moon.
