  1. I'm sorry to hear that it isn't a meteorite. However, i am glad it has given you an interesting journey, and i have had a great time reading through this thread (and leaning too) Better luck next time
  2. I don't think i could consider seeling them, as they were passed down from my grandad and are older than me. I had noticed the lack of field correction, but this doesn't really bother me too much. I'll continue to look around for some bigger bins, but won't rush into anything.
  3. That may be a possability, alan. i usually have my zeiss' out when i have my scope out, and was thinking of something to keep in the car to use if i am out and about somewhere. i'll have to try some out before i make a decision.
  4. Thanks. That's kinda what i was thinking. I think i will probably spend the money on another "toy". Not sure what yet, but i'm sure something will come along.
  5. Even if it isn't a meteorite (i hope it is), you could still put it on the mantlepiece and tell everyone that it is. I look forward to hearing what the verdict is.
  6. Hi everyone, I am trying to decide whether to by a pair of 8 or 10 by 50 binoculars. If i do, i would be willing to spend up to £50. However, i already have a pair on Zeiss 8x30 bins. Would i achieve anything from getting a bigger pair within my budget? my 8x30s are pretty good optically, so would the reduction in optical quality offset the increase in objective size? Any thoughts would be great.
  7. I wouldn't really say it was your stupidity. It looks as though it should go there, but it doesn't. I believe that you would put the 2" adapter in in place of the 2"-1.25" adapter if you use 2" EPs. Hope you can get some good veiws through it now
  8. Thanks, very interesting reading:)
  9. this may be a silly question, but why does the moon wobble like that?
  10. I just think it is nice to think that while i'm looking up, watching th ISS float across the sky, that the people on it do look back at me:) I might wave to them next time!
  11. I just went out to see what the conditions were like and i saw the moon on the horizon. it is the newest moon i have ever seen, so thin, more like a curved line than a creasent. when i first saw it, i thought it was a contrail in the distance. has anyone else seen the moon this thin before?
  12. Thanks Peter Thats just what i wanted to hear
  13. Hi, I've got an adapter to mount my camera for afocal photography and i have been taking some test shot during the day. I couldn't help but notice a big black dot in the middle of the shots. could someone tell me what they are, and how to get rid of them? i was using a fujifilm s1600 with my 150p and a stock 25mm ep
