  4. Looks great to try all the new scope gear :hello1: http://astroforecast.org:8080/uk.html
  5. I too believe that time does not exist at all. It is just a modus of reference indicating the passing of events that the human mind needs to refer to, facilitating (or so we think) our day-to-day occurrences. There is not Time, there is only the Continuum (in my opinion). Very well put, I have allways had a problem with this Time thing.If nothing moved or happend then there would be no time.
  6. They tried to put The Hubble telescope on Ebay but, one bid, because they said buyer to collect :shock: I think he bid
  7. Anybody intrested ? I bet Jeremy Clarkson puts a bid in for one for his front garden. Nasa space shuttles up for sale Nasa's soon-to-be-retired space shuttles are up for sale. The space agency said it is looking for ideas on where and how best to display its space shuttles once they stop flying in a few years. Nasa has put out a call to schools, science museums and "other appropriate organisations" that might be interested in showcasing one of the three remaining shuttles. However, Nasa has warned that it estimates it will cost about 42 million dollars (£27 million) to get each shuttle ready and get it where it needs to go, and the final tab could total much more. The estimate includes 6 million dollars (£3.9 million) to ferry the craft on top of a modified jumbo jet to the closest major airport. But the price could skyrocket depending on how far the display site is from the airport. Only indoor, climate-controlled displays will be considered. I wont one. :scratch:
  8. The star called VY Canis Majoris, a hypergiant star located 5,000 light years from earth and is considered to be the largest star discovered in the universe. Assuming the upper size limit of 2100 solar radii, light would take more than 8 hours to travel around the star's circumference. Light takes about 1 second to go around the Earth 7 times. :shock:
  9. You dont need a tracking device for planets or moon with a dob just use a fast exp and a high 1,600 or more iso.http://www.megastronomy.150m.com/New-QCUIAG/
