  1. Hi guys, iv been away for quite a while and have got my stuff out of storage to dust it off( and boy does it need a dust) disappointingly the controller has disappeared and I could only find the power pack, so using the clockwork tracking is out. Will the manual turning nobs be up to the task? As I'll no doubt be doing a lot of twisting of those nobs, and don't want them to fall apart or break with overuse? I must say it's been great going through my things and remembering what I had, and I can't wait for a clear sky.
  2. Yep I'll keep checking that site, it's been a while since iv had a chance to do anything sky wise and I'm just finding the time to check it out a bit.
  3. I don't have an horizon but the tops of the buildings in the distance of my town. It's not too bad considering.
  4. Not familiar with the numbers, I'm guessing the higher the number the better? And 6 is needed to maybe see it from teeside?
  5. I'm off work for a few days so will take advantage of the late nights, I'll dig my binos out too I think?
  6. Hi AM I'm up for a little bit yet just in case, the sky isn't bad at all at the moment?
  7. Hi everyone, I was hoping for a glimpse ? But a neighbors security light is making it unlikely.
  8. No dont resist, I highly recommend. Mine is the origional from years ago, and it gave me my best ever view of Jupiter and saturn. I cant wait for a good night now, itching to look through it again.
  9. Now thats what you call a hobby room. Also I like Brian cox and his easy to understand way, looking forward to his second live series in January
