  1. Can anyone advise if I could attach this to a William Optics Zenithstar 61? Thanks Andy
  2. I went to Goa last year. I was hoping for very dark skies, but sadly they weren't great. There's a huge amount of traffic and industry pollution
  3. Starfest II - NEAS display stands. http://youtu.be/xsDLi4IQJ4Y
  4. A quick tour of the trade stands at Starfest II http://youtu.be/3ytYlIsbtC4
  5. The next Starfest II video: http://youtu.be/ekSDLNBplOU
  6. There will be more vids to follow. And yes..... of course it was cloudy;)
  7. We'll be posting some videos of the event on our YouTube channel. Here's the first: Starfest II - Some of the hardwork behind the scenes
  8. I have a couple of pitches at Kelling in Red Squirrel if anyone needs a spot. PM me if you're interested. Andy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Even if the talks don't appeal, it's still worth going for the trade stands, members display stands, general astro chat etc. There should also be some solar observing if it's clear
  10. I'll be at Kelling Friday until Sunday. Some NEAS members are going Wednesday to Sunday. Andy
  11. Here's my intro. I am 38, live in Tiptree Heath with my Wife, no kids, just fish and Chickens. I have been into Astronomy for about 2 years and am now starting to delve into AP with my SW 250 PDS/NEQ6, ST80 guiding with QHY5v and imaging using a Canon 1100d. I am an active member of North Essex Astronomical Society who currently have a membership of 122! so there must be loads of astronomers in the whole of Essex. There's a few of us going to Kelling in Sept so perhaps we can look out for each other. I've never been to a star party, but it sounds like an idea to put a sign on your tent with your SGL name, so people know who you are? Andy
  12. Sorry for the mis-information, all this rain had convinced me that we can't be in BST (is it really that long since I used my scope? )
  13. We're not in British Summer Time yet so "Daylight Saving" should be - No
  14. Thanks guys. I'll go with the QHY5 as my SPS900 is not LX modded so I don't think it will pick out any stars for guiding.
