  1. Methinks we should start a poll about John Dobson............
  2. Naah - haven't been to the one down Windmill Road, Carl. Can't say I'm a big noodles fan.
  3. Welcome to the asylum Rob. Look forward to seeing some of your images in due course.
  4. Astroman and myself have discussed Sir Patrick Moore extensively on another forum, in the past. It's safe to say that we both have opinions on the gentleman, which, of course, we're both perfectly entitled to have. Nuff said.......
  5. As a small child I always had a fascination for the planets - in particular for Mars. It was probably several books by Patrick Moore that increased my interest in the hobby & it has remained there ever since.
  6. Great detail in those shots James. Focus remains really sharp. Well done.
  7. Yes, excellent work as always James. Superb, tack-sharp focus and lovely contrast. Well done.
  8. What an excellent array of pics there James. Some very nice close ups & some equally stunning panoramic shots. You can see that autumn has very much arrived in that splendid park of yours. Hope you & the family had a great day out there (by the looks oof the scenery, you must have done). Thanks for taking the time to post them for us all to see.
  9. Only to put something in the dustbin. Does that count? Same with the cloud cover here, too.
  10. Oh I'm sure they'll 'do their bit' daz...........guaranteed! Press Reload/Refresh to watch animation again.
  11. [move]*ON 3 NOVEMBER 2005*[/move] The two inner planets reach greatest eastern (evening) elongations just three hours apart. At 47 degrees from the Sun, Venus is bright and easy to locate, although low in the Southwest. Mercury, just 24 degrees from the Central Luminary, is more difficult. On Friday night, the Crescent Moon is halfway between them.
  12. [move]*ON 1ST NOVEMBER 2005*[/move] Of course you cannot see it tonight, and probably not tomorrow night, but look for it as a thin Crescent in the western skies after sunset on Thursday or Friday.
  13. [move]*ON 31 OCTOBER 2005*[/move] The geometry of Earth’s orbit is favorable (well, at least more favorable than usual) to see the Zodiacal Light (False Dawn) produced by sunlight reflecting off particles in the Earth’s orbit. These conditions will persist for about two weeks, after which moonlight can interfere.
  14. [move]*ON 30 OCTOBER 2005*[/move] Yea! Set clocks back in an hour for most locations in the U.S., Canada & Europe.
