  1. I have a guy who will only accept a cheque? Is that a bad idea?
  2. Ok, thanks for the advise. I'm gonna wait for a clear night and give it a go. Watch this space! (while I watch the big space ) Mark
  3. Another newbie here, can you give me any tips to view this on a Dob without scales?
  4. Fantastic image. Faulkes looks like a great project. Is it only available in the UK or would it extend to Ireland also?
  5. I think there is a competition running for the best pic of the Nanosail. Has anyone had a crack at it yet?
  6. Hi Guys, The weather looks bad for the weekend here, but do you have any tips for a newbie looking for this? Am I being too ambitious? Clear skies Mark
  7. I reckon the Chinese are already mining the moon You just saw the equipment moving about.
  8. Great work guys. Do you know of a reliable calculator for the dimensions? I believe getting one can be tricky.
  9. Great pics. Was this your webcam which you put up against the lens? Mark
  10. Nice job Marshal. I'm gonna have a crack at one of these for my Starhopper dob. I was thinking of using a gear rack and direct drive. Did you consider this? Was there a particular reason for using the threaded drive? Mark
  11. Well at least I will have some time to build a platform roll on 2020
  12. Yes, I think this could be a good plan. I'll do some more research and let you know how I get on.
  13. Gosh, astronomy is a long term hobby I have an 8in Dob, would I be able to get sufficient magnification on Mars or would tracking become the problem? Should March become my target date for my equatorial platform build?
