  1. I'm round the corner from you, not too far from Oldbury :-)
  2. Sorry if this has been said but didn't a rather large asteroid hot the moon and cause an explosion bright enough to be seen from earth last year? I didn't read the full story but it was on Sky News a couple of days ago, I think it was actually witnessed first hand too
  3. No astro presents but I got a drill and a set of drill bits, screwdriver bits and socket wrenches, not the typical present for a girl but I've been saying I need a drill for months now so Santa was clearly listening :-) it's the best present I had tbh (Tried to attach a photo but won't let me :-( it's saying I don't exist )
  4. thank you! as soon as I have the scope back I'll give it a once over, I'll also get a lead to connect my battery up when I'm next out in birmingham.
  5. how easily is it to check these things? are they easy to open up and have a look? I wish it was here now so I could have a mess.
  6. It's being stored at a friends at the moment, every time I've used it it's had batteries in, I have a 12v battery but need to buy a lead to use with it so I've never tried it out, as for the age ect it wasn't mine from new so I really have no idea, I'll check the power issue first, luckily i have a good friend who is an electrical engineer so I'l get her to have a look for me and test the power outage.
  7. I need some advice from someone who is mechanically minded, my nexstar isn't working properly, the motor will turn the scope left to right no problem but up and down doesn't work properly or sometime needs a helping hand to get moving, is it possible to change the motor? I've not opened it up yet to see how the thing works, I'm waiting for some advice first,
  8. This thread is giving me a headache :-0
  9. Actually I noticed a while ago but thought would be a good time to point it out, Wallpapering my scope sounds like an amazing idea!! That's tonight sorted :-D
  10. I'm going left, wish me luck :-p Thanks guys x
  11. Just having a looking on eBay for the book turn right/left at Orion, there's both, which one should I get? I'm very confused :-p
  12. I've had many of my best nights after one or several cans of that Aussie lager I probably can't advertise, last one was in Ogwen Valley in snowdonia, few beers, chilli cooked on a camping cooker and just a bivvi bag to sleep in, I know what you mean about the plough, I though the exact same, so bright it felt like you could touch it, awesome feeling, I'm off to do some of the Anglesey coastal walk in a couple of weeks and we are going to bivvi on a secluded beach, cannot wait for the skies :-) glad you had an ace night x
  13. I'm intrigued about the boat opinion, I happen to know someone with a yacht and all necessary qualifications to take people out on it, * hatches a plan *
  14. I'd love to go!! always something Ive wanted to see, funnily enough i was looking at the list of eclipses and seeing which ones would be feasable, let me know how your plans go
