  1. Just searching myself for Astro camping / van. i stopped at Hares leap near Louth. Not sure on the official Bortle, but it’s visible milky way. they have 5 hard standing pitches, with grass inbetween. Each has power hook up. Only £15 per night. But need to take your own toilet though. i did ask about Astro nights, as there is a single bright lamp At the entrance, but with prior agreement, it can be turned off.......
  2. Brilliant - thank you (sorry it took a while to see & respond)
  3. Sorry - did either of you find the answer please ? I have the same problem at the moment......... Thank you
  4. there was a starlink - would that mean, that they will occasionally flare ??

  8. Hi - very stupidly let the husband try to loosen a leg for me - needless to say, he’s stuffed them up. Now can’t extend / retract, the legs to get level......... ? I do have a set of HEQ5 legs, so question is - can I put EQ6-R mount, on HEQ5 legs ?? Using a 200 PDS, with guide & cameras. So not pushing the weight side too much...........but it is for imaging. thanks ?
  9. For sale. Bought this at the Astromshow a few years ago. Used a couple of times, but that’s it. Kept in the case & box. Condition is as new. Collection only please. Located Coventry West Midlands. But do travel to Lincolnshire (Coningsby) once a week, so would gladly meet up on the route. Price £1100
  10. Ohhh ?? Looks so much like my Lhasa - Tango
  11. JemC is that a Lhasa ?? looking forward to it ??
  12. Thanks - good to know ?? Yes, will be. Neither hubby or me, have skill, to make one. ?? So just waiting for a quote, to do the garden bit......
