  1. just pondered through the other items for sale from them and they sell everything from gun bipods to invisible silicon self adhesive strapless bra's!! ha
  2. i reckon that cost less than a quid to manufacture! could probably throw a better one together out toilet rolls and an old pair of glasses!! head shake!
  3. good work. i was on a beach last night and the ISS first went past about 10pm, very clear and bright then it passed around 11ish but on a different path and not quite as bright. unfortunetly i didnt have a 'scope or bino's! was great to see as always though! dave
  4. i cant stop playing about with it, just making the planets go round and round is fun!! its also great for working out when we will have the chance to see other planets!! dave.

  7. in 4 hours ill find out! tick tock tick tock! :)
  8. its in quite a good position where i am, not at the zenith but nowhere near the horizon. if its clear i can get a good nights viewing from as soon as the sun sets. a few weeks back i even managed to view it while the sky was blue, it was that clear it stuck out long before any stars were visable!! ill be on it tonight aslong as the clouds stay away but according to the weather reports, i may not be that lucky! :) dave.
  9. hi adz. where is cornwall are you heading? is it for a holiday or business? im just outside newquay, if your near by im more than happy to bring my telescope along for some viewing and to leech some knowledge from ya!! thanks for the welcoming greetings!! dave
  10. cool, once im settled down here, i have only been here a week, i would be very keen to maybe arrange a meet in a mutual place and share some viewing time. thanks to all you guys once again! dave.
  11. my head hurts after reading through this! but it enjoys it!
  12. yep, that looks like what iv been seeing! thanks todd :) dave
  13. cheers isabelle, that was an interesting read! :) dave
  14. cheers isabelle. i just found it strange how its been there for so long and does not seem to have moved at all! its probably moved alot but to the naked eye i cant see any change! when is mars going to be coming into view? iv been waiting for a good 6 months to see it, it must be like a game of cat and mouse up there, the earth is chasing mars in its orbit! :) thanks again. dave.
  15. yes that is an amazing video but if you want to see the best 10 time lapse videos on the net then this is the link!! Ten Amazing Timelapse Videos | TDG - Science, Magick, Myth and History check it out, the first 4 are similar to the one you posted!! hope you enjoy, dave.
  16. yeah iv read loads on nibiru aswell, it makes an interesting read but i dont think, or i dont want to believe it! i seen a video on youtube which shown you the area of google sky where it is supposed to be, or something but it is blanked out, i then went onto google sky, put the same co-ordinates in and the sky and there is nothing there. it just makes me wonder, so i thought id ask what people on here thought. thanks for the link, ill have a read now. dave
  17. im just curious why it hasnt left the nearby star like object behind! last night was clear, i got my scope out and as usual the dirtyest black cloud in the whole wide world appeared out of know where. so i put the scope away, then like a fart in the wind, it disappeared!! typical! :)
  18. anychance of any images of the SN? the more i read the more i realise im out of my league!
  19. and another newb follows! is this going to be visible to residents of the uk during the coming weeks! a supernova is one thing i would love to witness! im hoping ill be around when betelgeuse pops it clogs! dave.
  20. around 3 weeks ago i was viewing saturn and i noticed a star just above to the right. i at first thought it was titan ( which i didnt think could be visible with the naked eye ) and after i pointed my scope at it i realised it wasnt, or so i believe. its now been a few weeks and saturn still has the same star at the same position and it is still visible to the naked eye, if it was titan it should have shifted round saturn but its still in the same place. what is this star like object that is following saturn? saturn is gradually drifting across the night sky and iv been expecting this star ( or whatever it is ) to be left behind but its still there. im curious as to what it is, can anyone explain? dave.
  21. what are peoples opinions on this? i have read alot over the last few months and am curious to know more! i dont know what to believe!
  22. i dont quite know how to understand that, im hoping its in a good way?
  23. and if anyone uses facebook and would like to help me help a friend in america who has suffered 2 brain tumours since he was 3 ( he is now 12 ) win a contest then i would much appreciate it! we need only 35 more votes in the next 11 hours and we did it for him, but iv run out of FB friends to achieve this and we are so so close to getting him in there!! only a thought but if your interested i have 2 accounts ' ima F UNky punk ' and ' dave rodgers ' it would make a world of difference to this poor child!! peace and much love to you all!! enjoy ur evening, may the cloud clear!!
  24. WOW you guys rock! im overwhelmed by the response to this! i only popped away for a couple of hours to do some charity work on facebook and i came back to this!! thank you so much for your warm welcomes, i can see this is going to be the best place for me and my mind!! i can not reply individually, it took me long enough to add you guys one by one but id like to say a big big thank you all and may we have clear skies and dark nights for as long as we may live!! i salute you! dave!!
