  1. Very interesting link. So, if I can find one in Norfolk I can have the first in my county...although knowing my luck it would land on my house!
  2. Managed to have a nice look at Arcturus, but although it was really clear it did seem quite "light". Glad it's not just me!
  3. Yeah, I think Ebay is entering it's terminal phase. It used to be good, but it now costs a fortune to sell stuff on it and is smothered with dodgy overseas dealers. Pity. Still, just a few more posts and I can buy and sell through here!
  4. Anyone else think that the scope seems a bit like the old (Tasco?) kiddie scope from the 1980s?
  5. Already have this in my part of Norfolk. Makes a real difference here.
  6. Working on it! lol
  7. Good catch on the video - and a great ****** of Floyd too! Perfection!
  8. I'm not sure that folk are getting the idea that what is being talked about is basically an advert.
  9. "If you build it they will come..." People arguing against free advertising for the forum seems a bit odd, regardless of their views on Facebook.

    Apollo 14

    When I look up at the sky it is because it is as close as I can get to going there. Hubble will always produce better images than anything I will ever see through any telescope I may ever own or look through - but it is not the same as seeing these things through my own eyes. The day that we lose the desire to explore is the day that our species begins to stagnate. By nature we are curious. By nature we are explorers. Whether that is sea or space, many of us will never be satisfied just by sending robots. It would be easy for me to post my camera abroad and have someone take photos and post it back to me. Personally I'd rather go to the place and take them myself!

    Hello Leo! Isn't Lithgow the home of the Zigzag Railway?
  12. I spent many happy evenings watching the skies on Gozo! Welcome aboard!
  13. Yes, that was the Analog Buran and has now (finally) been rescued. There are two more somewhere out in the old USSR that were never finished, but still just about exist, an almost complete example in store and the only one that went into space is buried under the rubble of its hangar.
