  1. pleiades you are an expert! Very interesting. So much better than others who claim to be expert, but give ill advice.

    Hello and welcome to SGL
  4. I would just go ahead and make it if I were you. Post a pic in the DIY section when it's done and tell everyone what you did, how great it is etc and let everyone reply with compliments on your outstanding contribution.
  5. I would go back to 20th April 1889 to the Gasthof zum Pommer, an inn in Austria. I would then try to explain to Alois Hitler that his forth child would grow up to be the most evil dictator in human history, failing that I would go back in time even further and attempt to convince Klara Polzi to abort the birth.. if that achieved nothing, then I might contemplate going back in time and taking either of their lives before the conception..

  9. I wish I could keep mine in there too. Harry Potter gets in the way though
  10. I think that Betelgeuse Supernova is a popular choice & I hope that we all get to witness this great event in our lifetime. Maybe next year?!!
  11. ...after which I would do a few donuts in the lunar rover at Tranquillity Base
  12. Which objects would you most like to see in the night sky through a scope before you die? It could be some you haven't already found or the elusive one that you know is hard to see without a bigger scope? (...probably should be Light Bucket List)
  13. Mine's called 'Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus' after the Roman Emperor

    SGL Logo

    I love the SGL Logo. It's like the opening title image to Sky at Night, only the silhouetted people aren't vying to look through the telescope though; they are discussing Astronomy! (the one on the far left appears to be smoking, while the taller person offers the vertically challenged one on his/her right something.. )

    Hello from Surrey

    Hi Telrad, welcome to SGL! :D
  21. I agree with rowan46. It's a fine telescope and like you say at least you can lug it to the caravan.
