    I just got a pack of 2 firebulbs in that bargin shop for homes lol I just popped it in a lamp they work good and the pack was only 50p but they are 60w so it turns the room into a photo dark room lol but I have mine for the room reflecting behind me on the balcony so it's not to bright it may be a bit bright for inside a shed
  10. yes I noticed it also I was asking others if they could see it , good Idea about the drawings I will start doing that
  11. I have the 114 I like it I can see the moon very clear and also jupiter (still looking for other things as I have only just started) when my mum bought it (many moons ago) it was over triple the price its at now I know a lot don't like it and noticed a lot say it moves a lot, I don't get this problem but I did at first I just went through all the nuts and bolts tightened it up and now it is still the stand is flimsy though I have put tape on mine 2 make it stronger lol heres a pic of the moon from my 114 (novice pic as I just held cam to lense lol no holder or anything so it aint perfect) that is with the h20 lense the one you get with it I have not taken a photo of the other lenses yet but you get closer and it is still clear I see jupiter's colours when looking at him
  12. aww fab news you made me realise that mine could fall at some point well actually its a deffo as sometimes it will fall when I am stood there but caught it .................. I have just put scope outside but I have put loads of tape around his legs (its the ajusting bit that fails) it seems stronger now lol but I will be looking for better tripod thanks for making me do something about my stand before it fell I know it is not the best answer but it has worked for now
