  1. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Celestron-Omni-102-XLT-telescope-20mm-eyepiece-UK-/150496061187?pt=UK_Telescopes&hash=item230a43a703
  2. Not sure i have an 8" on mine supplied by Celestron so it must be ok. CG5 C8n Newtonian reflector. Davey.
  3. I know nothing about cameras but did a google on the spc900nc and the first thing i found was this. Do not know if it is relevant but thought i would post it for your opinion. Does not look as technical as the first link LOL. Main thing holding me back is a lap top or is there other ways of doing this. Davey. http://www.robertreeves.com/900NC.htm http://video.google.com/videosearch?rls=com.microsoft:*:IE-SearchBox&oe=UTF-8&sourceid=ie7&rlz=1I7DKUK&q=spc900nc&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=video_result_group&resnum=12&ct=title# http://shop.ebay.co.uk/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38&_nkw=SPC900NC++++&_sacat=See-All-Categories
  4. 83.99 miles, about 2 hours 4 mins going by Multimap. If i get transport may give this a look. Davey.
  5. No sun you will go blind instantly. The moon is ok start with that. Never buy from e-bay or department stores unless you know what to go for. The lidl Bresser 7x50 binoculars are brilliant for a cheap pair to learn the constelations with. Davey.
  6. http://stargazerslounge.com/index.php/topic,35798.0.html Davey. P.S Do a search on binoculars as i am sure there will be other posts on the subject that may help. ????
  7. Great site. Consistent well informed and quick replies to all questions. Friendly Atmosphere. Special mention to Steve at FLO for helping me out. Special mention should be added to Management, Mods for making this forum as popular and well kept as it is. It is a credit to you. Davey.
  8. We have changed the name of the irc chanel on freenode from #stargazers lounge to #astroirc. If you are unable to join the chanel then ask and someone will direct you. All users are welcome as i would love to have a Astro community on irc. Davey.
  9. Depends on the individuals whether you need OPPs people in charge to monitor the behavior. It can get a bit heated. Thought it was a Stargazers Lounge chat room Channel. Seemed a waste of a good idea and any time i was in it was quiet. If it does get popular then it will need Opps, people in charge to Ban people, usally seen with a @ next to their user name. Davey :sunny:
  10. I totally agree with ChrisEdu it should be more noticeable an it would be very helpfull to newbies. It should be put in the Home page in 6 foot letters LOL. Davey. :sunny:
  11. Recently Individuals started an Irc Channel where you can use it to chat and ask questions. First few nights were very active with a lot of people on and it was busy. Then it was used by Astrophotgraphers for a few nights, and then it went dead. Why is no one using it is my question. Davey. :sunny: http://stargazerslounge.com/index.php/topic,35015.0.html http://stargazerslounge.com/index.php/topic,35933.0.html http://stargazerslounge.com/index.php/topic,30085.0.html P.S i am informed that Stargazers Lounge allow their name to be used but take no repsonsibility for behavior in the Channel. So looks like if it is going to be popular then it will have to be controlled and opped by members who use it most and want to keep it a safe place.
  12. This is where i got my Telrad from. Unfortunately they are not selling on E-bay, where i got mine. https://site12.apollohosting.com/spencewatson.com/httpdocs/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=SFNT&Store_Code=SS Some people prefer the Baader 40mm Super Sky Surfer V http://www.firstlightoptics.com/products.php?cat=63
  13. Telrads are brill as they are like the target on a soitfire LOL. Got mine from america on a link in here somewhere for £1999, if it is under £20 quid you do not have to pay import tax. It is big and the mount is stuck to the scope with double sided sticky tape. I always leave mine on and when i go to use it the gatteries are flat. Ease of use you look through a front glass that dewes up like nobody's business and i can slide mine out and wipe it with a cloth or you can use a 12/240v hair dryer depending how brave you are on a cold damp night LOL. Davey.
  14. Looks like the perfect Grab and go scope. Davey.
