  1. ive seen the peak is about 2am, so im hiding in the warmth for a little longer, i tried about 23:30 but no luck.
  2. Absolutely crystal clear sky's here in county Durham and after the scope being a dust collector in the loft (for a good year or so) and the thought of a meteor shower, I've dusted her down and like you I was not disappointed, its reignited a long forgotten flame! sad note is i have lost alot of eyepieces (probably given away at some point), but the moon in the only eyepiece i could find (25mm) had me grinning like a big child again, i also has a hazy look at Jupiter but the moons were all on show and stunning as ever....still no meteor sighting but my wallets twitching and i think a new scopes in order! ive just ordered "Every Photon counts" so thats a good guess which route i fancy!
  3. "Until next time....Goodnight" ...*wipes a tear*...Goodnight sir Patrick...Goodnight x

    S@N

    I enjoyed it, however i guess my entertainment as a child in the 80's is alot different from a childs these days as my 11 year old son just said "Dad its boring put the football back on please"...the disappointment ran deep...don't worry ill trade him in for a new scope soon Its sad to see Patrick the way that he is, i wont go into it but it feels like when you visit a relative every month and each time you think "there getting worse " all in all im a S@N nut so even if Rod and Emu presented it i would still tune in...i guess its just ingrained in my DNA now. Roll on next month!
  5. nothing really terrifying, but the screams coming from a neighbours bedroom was quite offputting (for the first few minutes i thought she was being beaten up lol)...to the point i woke my wife up to come and have a giggle (if you have seen porkies it was litterally like that!)....all was fine she waltzed out the next day with a spring in her step.
  6. i found if i got really 'angry' and shook mine...the bulb burst lol (and it hardly ever got reported!)

  21. taking my stepdad on the moors and showing him stars had to be...the most funiest thing ive ever laughed at...i set his eyes on the poloris star then as i was moving him with my vision 'next star left is etc...go down 3 stars is etc'...he said ''wow this ones really bright''..thinking he was looking at the moon or a building i looked and he was looking directly at a car heading toward where we were...might not sound funny here...but at the time i couldn't breath from laughing lol
