  1. John Nichol makes outstanding mirrors below F4... Gerry, the bigger the dob the less ep's you use..most of my observing sessions are with the 21 and 8 mm ethos...Mapstar has plenty of nights where the 13 ethos is the only ep he uses in his 22".
  2. When you know...you know..have fun mate
  3. Cracking report mate glad you're back in the saddle....Galloway for part of the mob end of this month...hoping for lots of reporting!!..clear skies!
  4. Damn...I was hoping to get some double glazing phone calls...
  5. Tank of petrol is the best way of blocking street lights....
  6. That kinda report makes people reach for their wallet! Stunning isn't it?...that 21mm ethos was made for big mirrors...when teamed with a 20" mirror under dark skies it is quite simply one of the best moments in observing.....targets are better than photography ...no picture can give you the depth and 3d look that the 21 gives you...incredible. Just put a cushion on the floor when you swing it on M42 later in the year... Fantastic night and a wonderful report. Clear skies...oh and welcome to the dob mob.
  7. Yeah milky here last night Nick...it was planes this way...no end over peak district!!
  8. A lovely report Mark. I must confess the 8mm ethos I bought from you is still my favourite ep...simply stunning. I too don't use a filter on M57 as I find no improvement. Here's to more good nights like this. Clear skies!.
  9. Thanks Mark...will have to check my notes but I think I may of observed these. Thanks for sharing, clear skies!
  10. Yeah Danny give me a heads-up last night...next time eh Gerry?!
  11. Not caught IC 349 Iain so one for the coming weeks. Thanks for the info, clear skies.
